Picture An Hour ~ 30th July 2010

Picture an Hour. Or thereabouts.
One week ago today - 30th July 2010

Photobucket

11am - Stop at a cafe for a raspberry scone & cappuccino and to read a newspaper

Photobucket

11.30am - Touch up my lipstick

12 noon - Decide to make an impromptu visit to my hairdresser to have my fringe trimmed

Photobucket

12.30pm - Pop into the cafe at the cinema to buy some ice-cream to take in to watch the film

  21. It sounds like such a lovely day! Also, I think it's so brave of you to go and watch a film by yourself; I wish I was gutsy enough to do that!

  22. leia - yes, i often go to this particular cinema by myself. it's a really small independent cinema that always shows really cool films. and it is quite the norm for people to go alone. i'm not sure i would be that brave to go to one of the big multiplex though!
