Picture An Hour ~ 9th May 2010

Picture An Hour. Or thereabouts.
Sunday 9th May 2010

7.15am - I awoke very early for a Sunday morning after having had a night in the previous evening

Photobucket

8am - Straight onto the internet for some light reading to ease me into my day

Photobucket

10am - Breakfast, the best meal of the day - a pot of black coffee, glass of orange juice & bagel with butter & raspberry jam

Photobucket

11am - Get ready to paint my face

Photobucket

11.30am - Oh what to wear?

Photobucket

1.30pm - Arrive at the Living Room for lunch with a friend

Photobucket

2.00pm - We order marinated olives, bruschetta & humous to share

Photobucket

3.30pm - I actually forgot to photograph my main meal of Thai fishcakes in my hurry to eat it! My friend and I didn't stop talking, so there was a nice long delay between courses. I wasn't going to order dessert but... the treacle tart with raspberry ripple ice-cream was very nice

Photobucket

4.30pm - A cappuccino to finish

Photobucket

5.00pm - We pay the bill

Photobucket

5.30pm - We do a little window shopping at a small vintage interior shop neither of us has seen before. We both agree these pieces look very pricey!

Photobucket

6.00pm - I arrive home to browse through some of my own interior books - I especially love this Paris Interior book as I am so inspired by a Cabinet de Curiosities interior feel and this book showcases lots of homes with the same aesthetic. My own flat is not yet nearly cluttered enough!

Photobucket

8.00pm - I consider more food but immediately decide against it. I rarely eat any more in the day when I have dined out, as restaurant food is so rich

Photobucket

9.00pm - Instead I choose to drink a pot of tea before going to bed

  8. I love that you like bagels- I've been eating them practically every day since I got back to the states. If you like British bagels, then you'll LOVE American bagels because they're 10x better!
