7 I love this Santa decoration at B&M, but I’m not buying any more decorations because we don’t need any! For some reason, I’ve been a bit more reserved when it comes to Christmas shopping this year.

1 Day 12 Pics On Instagram – October

I’ve not taken part in #1day12pics on Instagram for a while. I figured it was time to join in again with October #1day12pics

For those who don’t know, #1day12pics runs on the first Saturday of every month. The idea is to take a photo on the hour, every hour and post them to Instagram.
I like to collect them all up and put them on a blog post when I remember to take part, that is!

Saturday was a quiet day, I didn’t really go anywhere so it was a bit hard finding something to take a photo every hour. I managed it, though 🙂

1 Day 12 Pictures – Project As And When

1 Day 12 Pictures

1 – The first of my 1 day 12 pictures is a certificate Kaycee received for excellent effort in some of her subjects at school. We’re very proud of how hard she’s working at her new school.

1 day 12 pictures

Books!

2 – I received a £50 book gift card. If you read my blog at all, you’ll know how much I love books. Which means you’ll know how excited I am to go and spend £50 on books! I’m taking it on holiday with me so we can go book shopping!

1 day 12 pictures

3 – The girls have spent the morning tidying the bomb site that was their bedroom! This is the rubbish they’ve removed!
They still need to vacuum the carpet, but the vacuum cleaner keeps playing up. I think it’s time to buy a new vacuum cleaner, again. I do not have much luck with them at all!

1 day 12 pictures

4 – Ant bought me a wax melt warmer before Christmas last year. I hadn’t found a wax melt that I loved until I ordered this one from Tesco. I’m a bit sad that it’s a limited edition. I’ll have to stock up!

1 day 12 pictures

Late Mother’s Day Gift

5 – Kaycee made this for me at school but she had planned to paint it and didn’t get it done in time for Mother’s day. She wasn’t going to give it me because it wasn’t finished but Ella brought it down and gave it me without Kaycee knowing! I told her it was perfect as it was.

1 day 12 pictures

6 – I spent last weekend finishing this book. I loved it. I’ll be writing a full review soon.

1 day 12 pictures

7 – Time for an afternoon snack!

10 – My syn allowance on Slimming World is 25 but I’ve not been doing very well so I planned my menu for the week and dropped my syns to 15.

Relaxing

11 – Ella came to relax and watch something on Netflix after her busy day cleaning her room and helping her Nanny with the polishing.

1 day 12 pictures

12 – Kaycee came home and joined Ella. They watched Once Upon A Time. They’re on season 3 now and I think they’re both a little bit addicted to it!

June – 1 Day 12 Pics

1 Day 12 Pics

I’ve had a rubbish week, health-wise and because of that, I’ve missed some of my 366 photo challenge days so I don’t have a weekly photo post to do today. I do, however, have my 1 day 12 pics photos to share with you and I’ll start my ‘photo a day for a year’ challenge again from tomorrow!

For those who don’t know, 1 day, 12 pics is run by @emmadaviesphoto on Instagram. On the first Saturday of each month, you take a photo every hour until you’ve taken 12 photos.
I really enjoy joining in and have set a reminder on my calendar for each month so I don’t forget!
