My Life in Photos // July


I can't believe I almost forgot all about this little series this month! :O Luckily, with a day to spare, something clicked in my head and therefore I had no choice but to use Saturday the 30th as July's day in my life. Fitting it into the schedule has been the difficult part. I had posts sorted for every day in August and some of September so have had to have a bit of a re-shuffle to be able to post it haha.
Anyways, today Jake went to Newcastle for the match with Dad and so Mam came round to keep me company. Here is how the day went.



1 // The crack of dawn. I've been leaving even earlier than normal for work so as to avoid neighbours as much as possible. It means I get to see some pretty skies again. 
2 // Almost home time from work and most people won't have even left for their jobs yet haha. The only downfall of working Saturdays is that the TV is rubbish - no 3rd Rock from the Sun like during the week.
3 // Summer blooms are beautiful. I'd love a garden that looks just like that! No one can complain having views like this walking to and from work.
4 // The Canada Geese are here again. It's so funny to hear them honk away. You can't not smile at the sight and sound of them.


5 // A nice shower to kick off the morning.
6 // Baker is already unimpressed as I've asked him to stay in the living room while I clean the back room but he doesn't want to. He just likes to be wherever I am... :)
7 // Stripped the sofa, wash the cushions, swept and mopped the floors, all before 10am.
8 // Time for a little biscuit and juice break, checking the 2nd blog, while waiting for Mam to arrive.


9 // Mam arrived and helped me tidy up the garden. It's not that I can't but the neighbour situation prevents me from being outside alone. At 25. Sad, I know.
10 // Making some homemade pizza dough ready for dinner!
11 // While eating tea we watched 'The Straight Story' dvd. 
12 // We did a spot of digging for more of the family tree but no websites go far enough back (I'm back to the 1600s on the Eskdale side) and there are no free ways to see any Scottish records at all, discounting the Fair side. Looks like a trip to the archives is inevitible in the futrure. Though really, you shouldn't have to pay to access your own family records...


After this I had a bit of a break down and forgot to take any more photos, though after Jake and Dad arrived back it wasn't long before I went to bed. Overall it was a good day until the last few hours.
I made sure to pick a certain day this month and have already completed it so I won't have a last minute dash like I did for July :P

      You have the Lux excuse to not be up to date on housework though ;)

  2. Look at all the geese! We've got a huge group of them not far from my house, they are all sitting on the dried out lake beg and they are pretty cute. I like watching them potter about on the lake.

  4. Another great post with wonderful photos! I especially like the one with Baker against the red blanket in the background, and the one with the clock was surprisingly stunning for such a simple shot. Also, I completely admire you for getting up/working so early in the morning! I guess that's because I am absolutely not a morning person, so I'm always impressed with people who are :)

    1. Thank you very much! These are all just snaps haha so it's nice to hear you like them!
      Oh I love being an early bird now. I wasn't always but because I work 7 days a week my body is now in a routine haha.

  5. I love the pics of all the geese :)
    I love looking at people's every day life in pictures. That always just says so much in a picture itself

  6. I love those bright blooms on your walk to work, how gorgeous! Such a cute photo of Baker too, I never get tired of seeing photos of him. I'm so sorry to hear the last few hours of your day were not fun, and that your neighbour situation isn't going well. Remember, I'm always here if you want someone to vent to / chat with, as I know that you should be able to enjoy your own home, garden and space without fear of others. I do hope the situation starts to get better, but am always here if not, or you need someone to chat to. - Tasha

    1. Aren't they lush?! Wish I could have a secret garden full of them. Thank you, that was him all moody lol.
      Ah it's okay, I've gotta try learn to live with it all as it's unlikely we'll be able to move again any time soon...thanks lovely.

  7. Beautiful photos. I especially love the colourful flowers one! And the one of Baker, he's so freaking cute bless him! I can't wait to be a dog mama! What's the neighbour situation? :/ its not sad at all, I can barely leave the house alone around this area. If I do I feel sick and really silly things trigger me (like seeing someone with brown curly hair lol). Don't ever feel sad or silly 'cos we all have sad and silly things we can't do :P xo

    1. Ah thank you :)
      That was him with his moody face too haha. You'll make a great one, one day. Ah it's a long story of harassment and hating me just because I have anxiety and don't talk to anyone... It really is a long story but that's the jist. Yeah I'm the same with men with long grey hair in a ponytail and stuff.
      Thanks lovely
