A Day in my Life

One of the tasks for my Yesterday and Today class was to do a 'day in your life'. I have been putting it off for weeks and then on Monday decided to gracefully accept my mission. It was actually far more fun than I thought it would be and looking through the photos and my notes, I have learnt quite a bit about myself.

I learnt that I drink a lot of tea, I put that down to being English.....

I learnt that I have a good enough relationship with the vegetable chap at the supermarket to ask him to take a photo of me inspecting the carrots!!

I learnt that I can take 'Ali Edwards' style self-portraits......

I learnt that I always seem to be either packing or emptying the dishwasher - probably due to all those cups of tea......

I learnt that I can't stop myself taking photos of this little man, baby OL. LOVE HIM to bits..

I urge you to give it a go. It is so interesting to learn these little tidbits about oneself.


  1. your pictures made me smile. and *almost* made me wish I had a baby again. but since my youngest are 17, I think I'll just be patient and wait for grandkids someday!

  2. I love your photos!!! I think the tea thing probably does have to do with being English. :) That last photo of baby OL just made me smile!! He is so cute!! I had wrist toys like that for my little one too!

    So, here's a question... what do you miss most from England?? Do you have family here? From photos I have seen and from the movies, it looks beautiful.

  3. Oh my gosh--I love the self-portrait of you and baby OL! What a little lovebug! **kiss**

    Just read Michelle's post above--it might be fun for you to do a little post about England! What you miss, when/if you plan to move back, your thoughts on Kate Middleton (ha)--I think a post about England would be fascinating!

  4. OMG I've always wanted to do one of those but get lazy half way though. Cool photos!!!

  5. Baby OL is just too cute! I love his smile!

  6. I love your "day in the life" photos...How fun to have a record of your life. Your little baby is just the most adorable little thing!

  7. I will have to try this --- maybe one weekend day when it seems like all I do is run from one kid's activity to the next!!

    Adorable photo of little OL!

  8. Oh, he is too cute! I love the idea of capturing one day, just an average day, something that seems so ordinary may be fondly remembered in the future.
