Photo An Hour » January 2016 » 31/01


As I’m feeling a bit more like getting in on the blogging thing, I thought I’d kick it up a gear and do a Photo An Hour.

A few years ago, I did one a month for the whole year and I’ve been doing them on and off for the whole time I’ve had this blog, even taking part in the 1 Day 12 Pictures occasionally too.

I do enjoy how they’re a little bit of a snapshot into what I was up to at the time. So, without further rambling, here is a Photo An Hour for the last day in January 2016.


9am: // Moon and I are in a pretty solid routine of waking up only a little later than we normally would on a weekday at weekends. Our bed is ridiculously comfortable but it is pretty good, even on a Sunday to feel like you’ve got up and done some stuff that day. This Sunday was a little bit of a struggle, thanks to the grey weather though.


10am: // Catching Doll in the act – she’s actually settled in to the house really well and seems so much happier than she ever was at the flat. Over the winter she’s become a bit of an accidental house cat, just because of how the house is, we can’t let her come and go as she pleases as much but I think she’s cool with it, and actually, she doesn’t seem to fancy going out all that much either.


11am: // Taking in a new magazine – I have so much magazine reading to catch up on, Ernest Journal was a nice little find at the Old Fire Station in Oxford. I’ll have to head back there to see more of their arts mag collection soon.

Sometimes sitting and watching Sunday Brunch of a morning can do a world of good. And what kind of contemporary couple would we be if we weren’t doing that while on our phones? ♥


12pm: // On the road to hit up Banbury for a Sunday mooch.



1pm: // Discovering the lovely Little Amsterdam, Banbury Café of the Year 2015. A lovely restaurant specialising in dutch pancakes, absolute dream for a real-life Sunday brunch.


2pm: // Moon modelling his sweet new cap.


3pm: // Spotting some filming on Banbury town centre, which fooled us into thinking there was a crime scene… I’ll tell you, post-Making a Murderer, that fact was a lot more disappointing than it should have been.


4pm // Home again with a few goodies from Tiger.


5pm: // Continuing the Dutch dining theme of the day with a tasty stroopwaffel ♥


6pm: // Playing a new video game, Moon downloaded The Long Dark, which might actually be one of my favourite games ever. I’m not a big gamer or anything but I do tend to dabble, and The Long Dark is not only quite pretty to look at but much more my pace in that I’m not having to shoot anyone and I can completely take my own time – except not actually because I’ll freeze to death.


7pm: // Whipping up dinner for the evening, a tasty red Thai curry soup.


8pm: // Sunday night shower with the best shower gel of all time.


9pm: // Sunday night movie, 99 Homes in case you were wondering – you can see my review here.
I’m hoping to stay just as chill this weekend, perfect for this time of year I think, have you got any nice plans?
