Yesterday was the last day of the month, and it was also the day I chose for May’s Photo an Hour. I don’t really know why I picked the last day of the month; when it comes to November, I need to pick a day before my birthday (on the 12th), so that I can do the final post that will count towards my 32 Before 32 item. So really, the middle of the month would be more ideal, because then there would be approximately one month between each day, rather than just a couple of weeks! So I’m going to try and even things out over the next couple of months, if that makes sense!
I had plans yesterday, so I thought that would make for more exciting photos than usual, when I am stuck at home doing nothing much at all. It didn’t really turn out that way, and I think this is one of the most boring Photo an Hours that I’ve ever done! It doesn’t help that I went to the cinema, so had to miss out on two hours!
10am – A late start to the Photo an Hour day, because I didn’t have anything to take a photo of at eight or nine o’clock! I stayed at Anna and Rob’s house, and we went out for breakfast. This is Rob driving to the Toby Carvery for the aforementioned breakfast.
11am – As it turned out, we were back in the car by eleven, having finished out breakfast. Rather than another photo of Rob driving, I took a photo of the lovely blue skies.
12pm – This is my new favourite top. I can’t imagine a time when I won’t want to be wearing it. It’s just sheer perfection.
1pm – After we had been out for breakfast, we had quite a bit of time to kill before we went to the cinema, so we put a Derren Brown DVD on. Seven of us went to see him in Southend on Friday night, and it was one of the best shows I’ve ever been too; so entertaining and so much fun. I just love him.
2pm – Still too early to start thinking about leaving for the cinema, and with Derren over, there was nothing for it but to put some Friends on. I don’t watch an awful lot of it these days, because I don’t have Comedy Central at home, so it’s a bit of a novelty to see it sometimes!
3pm – Back in the car! We drove from Southend to Basildon for the cinema, so I took a photo of Jen and John’s car from Anna’s car.
6pm – As I previously mentioned, I couldn’t take 4pm and 5pm photos, as I was in the cinema (that would be a serious contravention of the Code of Conduct), so I took one as we came out at six o’clock. Obviously, with my predilection for even numbers (not sure if I’ve ever mentioned that facet of my personality on the blog), being in screen eleven isn’t ideal, but I was in seat 10, so it wasn’t all bad.We saw X-Men: Days of Future Past, and I loved it. I can’t wait to write a blog post about it.
7pm – I think this is the third timethat Pointless Celebrities has featured in a Photo an Hour! It just so happens that I nearly always watch it if I’m home on a Saturday night!
8pm – On a whim, I decided to have some chip shop chips for dinner. I know they are terribly unhealthy, but a Saturday night in demands terrible food.
9pm – I had a bath and tried to finish my book, Mrs Hemingway, but I failed. I really wanted to get it in under the wire as a May book, but I just had too much left to read.
I wasn’t terribly proactive about reminding people that Photo an Hour was approaching, so some regular participators forgot! I will try and be better next month!

Next month I’ll be doing Photo an Hour on June 22nd. It’s a Sunday, which is a first for me, but I thought it would make a change. I’d like to see what everyone’s typical Sunday is like – I expect to see a lot of roast dinners! I’ll be away for the weekend that day, so hopefully I can find some interesting things to photograph! Join in on Twitter, Instagram, or just on your blog. Just tell me if you are joining in so I can take a look at your photos and include you in my roundup! Use #photoaday on social media if you are joining in.
