Photo an Hour - May

09:02 - Eating breakfast and contemplating my latest knitting project.  So many bobbles, such sore wrists.

10:13 - I was going to watch Netflix and knit more, then changed my mind and decided to get an earlier train to town so I could get some shopping done before meeting Tam.

11ish - Obligatory What I'm Wearing on PAH Day shot!  H&M cardigan, vintage M&S polka dot dress and disco Converse.  And tights.  Boo.  The only full-length mirror in Mother's house is in the darkest spot so some fancy camera work was required here...  Then it was a dash for the first train.

12:25 - Tam fancied checking out the charity shops in the next town over so I hopped on another train an hour later.  The interval shopping trip was fairly successful - I managed to convey to the No 7 woman in Boots how utterly useless I was and she did my makeup for me.  We're off to a wedding this weekend and I thought I'd make a bit of an effort!  I don't like looking like I'm wearing a ton of makeup but my skin has been misbehaving for a few months so needs must...

Also on my shopping list was some quick-dry nail polish and a new SIM card.  The phone shop was unexpectedly closed and I bought the wrong type of polish.  Yup, one of those days.

13:16 - Met Tam, visited some charity shops and had lunch at this very patriotic pub.

14:42 - After agreeing that the pickings had been pretty rubbish, we went back to the main town and had a quick visit to my favourite shops.  There was some rather fun painting going on when we turned the corner.

15:30 - There was a bit of a dash for the train home.  I know you're all completely riveted by these pictures of public transport in Scotland, right?

16:20 - Home, and we went a bit of a drive around since my car hasn't been used much lately - my bro has already jump started it once since I moved down, oops.  As always, we ended up at the beach.  Apparently there was something exciting on that log, going by the outtakes.  I've already forgotten what it was.

17:09 - After a bit of walking and messing around at the playpark, we went off to buy dinner supplies.  Not before I'd photographed this awesome collection of litter bins though.

18:05 - A giant parcel of wool greeted me when we got home!  I won a couple of job lots on eBay last week, nothing too exciting but I think I can find a use for most of it.

19:25 - Just to make today even more about materialistic things, here's the mini enetertainment haul we found in a charity shop that was selling ten CDs or DVDs for £4.90.  When Tam and I picked up one each and that came to £4, we figured it was worth raking around for a few more.  The selection was extremely limited but we made it work.  The CDs and bottom two DVDs are mine - we needed some car music for our camping trip next week!  Clubland Hardcore is strictly for the running playlist though.

21:57 - I slightly forgot about the photos for a while there...  We spent the evening watching a Fleetwood Mac concert on TV and reading the Empire Top 500 Movies list.  There was a bit of debate about how certain films had made their way onto the list and when we realised it would take forever to watch them all, we moved onto the IMDb list.

22:41 - Bedtime was approaching.  Mother has a new magazine subscription so I had a flick through when I got bored of knitting.

And that was Saturday!  Last May was our first trip to Helensburgh, which I think might have been slightly more exciting...  For anyone who wants to join in, check out the #photoanhour hashtag on social media to find out the date of the next one.
