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...
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
