A day in my life – 14th July, 2015

Silly me didn’t do the journaling for this post within a day or two of taking the photos, so now I’m hard pressed to remember the details. Of course, being July, the day started with me watching about 4 hours of the Tour de France, that I recorded during the night.

Bailey is my cycling buddy and lies beside me. When I get up, usually for another cup of tea, I cover him up with the blanket.

When the cycling finishes – usually around 9am, I head upstairs to make the bed and have a shower.

IMG_5426.jpg

I was feeling ok today so decide to take the dogs on a walk – but only a short one (wheew I drive down to the lake rather than walk the whole way).

IMG_5428.jpg

Such a gorgeous Winters Day.

Back home I finally had some breakfast of overnight oats.

Since I wasn’t feeling well enough to do a job like decluttering or cleaning I worked on finishing my family photobook for last year. My laptop is dying and I wanted to make sure it was finished and uploaded in case it was lost forever.

About 12.15pm I headed out, first to the shops, where I bought did a spot of browsing and got a subway wrap for lunch, then to my beauticians for a eyelash and eyebrow tinting and a lovely facial.

IMG_5451.jpg

I then picked up Christy from school and headed home, where I watched some youtube before Athena made us tacos for dinner.

IMG_5456.jpg

After dinner I watched some TV with Kevin and we headed up to bed around 9pm.

IMG_5457.jpg

The dogs don’t come up on the bed every night but it was nice getting to have some cuddles with them as I read.

Day in the life – 14th May, 2015

IMG_4265.jpg

I was up around 5am again this morning. Let the dogs out, took my medication, made a pot of tea and settled down to watch the Giro (cycling race in Italy). It was rather chilly this morning so the heater had to go on.

IMG_4274.jpg

Time to make another tea and pack Kevin’s lunch.

IMG_4275.jpg

I also took some pain killers to hopefully kill a bad headache.

IMG_4276.jpg

Kevin & Christy left for work around 7.30am. I continued watching the cycling till around 8.30 when I stopped to make breakfast. I couldn’t decide what I felt like for breakfast so decided on some corn thins with hummus, cucumber and tomato.

IMG_2178.jpg

Bailey is my cycling buddy and loves to get pats when I’m sitting in Kevin’s seat watching the cycling.

IMG_2181.jpg

When I finally finished watching todays race, I showered and dressed, and finished uploading a vlog for my youtube channel….

IMG_4280.jpg

and started editing another as I’m a behind…

IMG_4284.jpg

I then loaded up the car with things to donate (from my huge house declutter)…

 

 

 

IMG_4283.jpg

and made a quick and easy lunch..

IMG_2183.jpg

Then just before 1pm I got my bag and water and headed out the door.

IMG_4287.jpg

After dropping off the donations I drove to my beauticians…

IMG_4289.jpg

where I enjoyed a lovely facial, and got my eyelashes and eyebrows tinted.

IMG_4290.jpg

I then picked up Christy from school and headed home. I dropped her off, picked up Athena & Bailey, except this time Athena was driving. And it was back into town to drop her off at the Youth Center.

IMG_2186.jpg

IMG_2187.jpg

Back home I remembered to put the bins out (since Dad is away).

IMG_4292.jpg

I then had time for a snack and to watch some YouTube.

IMG_2188.jpg

I bought the washing in for Athena and enjoyed the late afternoon sky.

IMG_4294.jpg

About 6.15 Kevin and Athena were back home and we enjoyed the rice paper rolls that Athena had made for dinner.

IMG_2191.jpg

For some odd reason Rosie always lies under this seat at dinner time.

IMG_4295.jpg

Tonights game was Qi, which I’m NOT very good at.

 

IMG_4300.jpg

Being the 14th means it’s time for dog treatments. Rosie is so much happier now she doesn’t have to have the one her back. She now gets a chewy. But Bailey can’t have the chewy as it made his ears all swell !!!

IMG_4299.jpg

Before settling down for the evening I made up some overnight oats.

IMG_4301.jpg

While watching TV we enjoyed some strawberries and cream.

A Day in the Life – 15th August, 2014

IMG_5579.JPG

Up around 5am this morning. Tea as usual and today I had cuddles with Bailey…

IMG_5584.JPG

while watching the Eneco Tour.

IMG_5586.JPG

Then I got a bit sidetracked online looking at Outlander stuff :-).

IMG_5592.JPG

Kevin and the girls had left for school and work. Eventually I decided I was hungry but not sure what I felt like eating, so I had a ciabatta roll with cheese & tomato. And more tea, of course.

IMG_5597.JPG

There was more time watching Youtube.

IMG_5599.JPG

I then had my shower and got organised to take the dogs on a walk. I’m still not up to the full walk, so we drive down to the lake…

IMG_5605.JPG

and enjoy a slow 15min walk…

IMG_5609.JPG

IMG_9856.JPG

So nice to out in the sunshine and fresh air.

IMG_9857.jpg

 

IMG_5612.JPG

IMG_5615.JPG

Bailey likes to go exploring….

IMG_5620.JPG

whereas Rosie is my¬† little shadow…

IMG_5625.JPG

Afterwards I stop by the local supermarket to pick up a few supplies.

IMG_5628.JPG

Then it’s back home to edit a vlog.

IMG_9859.jpg

Before making a veggie burger sandwich for my lunch.

IMG_5639.JPG

I then rewatched the first episode of Outlander.

IMG_5644.JPG

Snuggled under a blanket as it had turned cool. Loved it just as much the second time around.

IMG_5647.JPG

IMG_5649.JPG

Afterwards I dug out my scrapbook album to check out my photos of Doune Castle, where some of Outlander is filmed. Only had 2 photos if you can believe that!!! You forget that when you had to pay to get your film printed you were very selective in what you photographed.

IMG_5654.JPG

I picked up the girls from school at 3pm and spent the afternoon watching youtube. When Kevin got home he prepared the pups dinner.

IMG_5667.JPG

And I put together a rather easy one for us.

IMG_5671.JPG

Kevin & shared a quorn fillet and soy sausage.

IMG_5675.JPG

Then it was time to settle down with a very cute puppy and watch some TV.

IMG_5676.JPG

A Day in my life – 22nd July, 2014

IMG_5194.JPG

Managed a bit of a sleep in this morning till 6.30am. Only Rosie to let out today as Bailey has started staying up with Kevin until he comes down. Of course there was tea drunk. No Tour de France today as it was a rest day.

IMG_5196.JPG

Even though I’ve been really unwell I still usually manage to put Charlie out. The girls have been good about doing the dishwasher before they head to school.

IMG_5198.JPG

Any little job seems to leave me exhausted and in pain so it was back to the couch…with my pups…

IMG_5200.JPG

IMG_5201.JPG

and some more tea…

IMG_5203.JPG

IMG_5205.JPG

Eventually I dragged myself upstairs (and ended up incredibly puffed due to my lung infection), showered, dressed and collected todays washing.

IMG_5214.JPG

I’m wanting to upload our UK trip videos to YouTube and tried to, unsuccessfully, work out how I could re-edit it.

IMG_5224.JPG

I was feeling slightly better today, enough that I could be bothered to paint my nails, which had been naked for the last week.

IMG_9736.jpg

Since so much of the day was spent on the couch I lit a candle.

IMG_5230.JPG

I’ve been really funny about food and not up to making much. Since I didn’t have anything ready to eat in the fridge I made a lunch of crackers and dip.

IMG_5231.JPG

Then a few hours later had a snack of cheese & crackers.

IMG_5233.JPG

Pop has been great about collecting the girls from school, though today Christy had drama, but he picked up Athena and took her to the hairdressers. Around 4pm I headed upstairs to have a bath.

IMG_5246.jpg

Bailey found a toilet roll (empty) to eat – no idea how they are so tasty but both dogs enjoy one from time to time!!!

IMG_5243.JPG

Tonight I enjoyed yet another stunning sunset.

IMG_9720.JPG

Athena was kind enough to make us dinner (as she’s been doing every night since I got really sick) – quorn pie, potato and honey carrots tonight. Then Kevin & I settled in to watch some TV – tonight it was a documentary on the A380.

IMG_5249.JPG

Bailey found his favourite Winter position in front of the heater…

IMG_5258.JPG

and around 8.30pm we headed up to bed. I’ve not been sleeping the best lately so we’ve been heading to bed rather punctually.
