A Day In The Life

It's been a while since I last documented an ordinary day with a photo an hour, and as the previous one was when I was last home for Easter, I thought it would be a great time to do it once again.

10am - As I'm currently on break I like to wake up a little later (I've never been a morning person!). I can't bare to hang around in my pajamas, so I always select an outfit and put on my face before anything else so that I'm ready for the day ahead.

11am - Mum and I were spending the day together and as it was sunny for once, we decided to head for the nearby seaside. There aren't many illuminations by the seafront but I've always been quite attached to this one. It's by the train station, so whenever I see it I associate it with being nearly home.

Noon - Despite being sunny, it was still cold out but I can never resist an ice cream! I remember first having this raspberry and blueberry ice cream when I was in Germany when I was 12. I didn't understand German well enough to know what flavour it was supposed to be, I only knew it was the nicest ice cream I'd ever had. It's only the past couple of years I've started seeing it in the UK and it always reminds me of visiting Cologne!

1pm - I imagine this might seem quite a funny thing to record to any Americans reading, but in the UK Taco Bell is brand new and there's only a handful of stores around the entire country. One of them happens to be near me and only opened last year, so it's still a novelty as Mexican food here is extremely limited. When I visited California a few years ago Taco Bell and Del Taco were my favourites for fast food so I'm really glad we have it here at last!

2pm - We had some more time to spare, so decided to check out an antiques shop that's opened fairly recently in that end of town. I have a soft spot for Winnie The Pooh as I loved A A Milne growing up, and thought these mugs were darling. They're shaped like honey pots and have little gold bees all over. I also saw a 1960s foot stool which is also a sewing box filled with all of it's original sewing supplies. It's been haunting me, so I'm hoping it's still there when I pop back for it!

3pm - We finally arrived home and I'd received a few exciting items in the post, including my ticket to see Roger Waters in July! It's unusual to receive it 3 months early, but I bought it presale for attending BST last year so perhaps that's why. I'm also seeing him in Birmingham and that ticket hasn't arrived yet. It's the two nights preceding my birthday, and I can't think of a better way to celebrate!

4pm - It was such lovely weather I couldn't bare to stay in the house and so plugged myself into my iPod and went on a long countryside walk to get lost in my thoughts.

5pm - I ended up walking for over 5 miles around the reservoir. It's one of my favourite past times as it's so beautiful and peaceful up there, I just focus on the music and get completely lost in it and imagine I'm watching it at a concert.

6pm - On my way home to be back for dinner. The sun was beginning to set and I loved how it shone behind the daffodils lighting them up.

7pm - I then spent most of the evening on my laptop, writing a post for my Pink Floyd blog and editing a video for my YouTube channel. I may have also booked a couple of things for my holiday next month!


  1. Hi Sydney, I loved reading this post and I like the idea of taking a photo an hour, you should do that more often (if you want to, of course).
    Seeing your lovely photo of going on a walk has made me want to go on a walk myself!
    I've never tasted blueberry and raspberry icecream, but it looks nice and matches your nail polish perfectly! :)

    1. Thank you! I thinking of doing photo a day posts soon, but I guess we'll see if I can carry it through or not!

  2. I love these types of posts, but I rarely remember to do them.

    Haha! Around where I live Tacobells are usually kind of run down and known for lower quality food. But the meal you got looks really good! I imagine the brand new ones are much nicer.

    Long peaceful evenings walks are wonderful :)

    1. I know what you mean, this was my second attempt as I kept forgetting to take pictures first time! Than I end up taking too many and have to try and edit it down.
      I imagine Taco Bell are trying to make a good impression as it's brand new!

  3. I love reading these posts, they give a great insight into how our on-line friends live their lives!
    I adore your nails and that sewing box - I hope you went back and got it! xxx

    1. Thank you! I love reading these kind of personal posts too, I think they're really interesting!
