Life || Photo A Day #21

It’s been a while since I failed so miserably at taking my daily photos, but here it is. Where every photo is as uneventful and dull as the rest of this week was. Some weeks just aren’t meant for being interesting. So here goes, a plain old week with not a lot a-hap’ning

Sitting down to a damn tasty dinner in our new bowls that we bought on discount. Four euros, well spent.

Oh look at him! He’s sleeping! I’m just going to get a photo

Sneaks over the road, bends down, holds up phone

Oh…

Wait, Mr. Goose, come back! Look at the camera please!

Oh, OK. Bye then

Silently cries as Mr. Goose goes back to sleep as soon as I’ve crossed the road.

There’s an unofficial rule of nature in Belgium that states you may only have one hot and sunny day at a time and enjoyment of said day is punishable by never-ending rain.

I only took one photo today and that was my new cover for my Kindle. It’s pretty ace if I do say so myself.

Tuesday night, with a good book and my feet up.

For some unknown reason the street lights have been off for the last couple of nights, but now they are back on. And this is what we get, when I forgot about a photo until late into the night.

Ending the week on some sunshine and a tree-lined road. Sounds alright to me.

And that’s it for this week, in all its quiet-life glory. I do enjoy a quiet life now and then. 

Photo Snapshots || Springtime Cycle Ride

life as unusuals snapshots springtime cycle rides

This post started off as “Weekend Snapshots || Saturday Cycle Ride” and then it dawned on me: we went on a Monday. On the ball as always.

So yes, Monday, it was definitely Monday. We were just back from our trip to the homeland and were feeling a little trip to the British Store to stock up on a few necessities. The sun was shining and I’m still in the process of trying to get my monies worth from the bikes so we put together a bit of scenic route and headed out for the day.

The day started off with some very cute goslings enjoying the sunshine, followed by the most amount of frogs I’ve ever seen serenading us as we cycled by (who promptly stopped when I got off my bike to photograph them), then it was ALL THE COUNTRYSIDE, blossoms, tree-lined cycled paths (with a field mouse who was too speedy to be photographed), more countryside, a pretty majestic looking heron and then a goddamn tortoise. Yep a wild tortoise. It was an epic day.

Here’s the photos to prove that said awesome day was real.

Shame that the store was closed on Mondays though. No worries, we cycled back this weekend on the less countryside-y, less tortoise-y, less awesome route of the good ol’ main road. Laters Folks!  

Life || Photo An Hour May

Unlike last month where I almost missed the link up, I signed up for the reminder email instead! So here it is, Saturday by the hour!

It was gloriously sunny, I got a shit-load done and I cycled my arse to a callus, it was a damn good day. I even had half a tub of ice cream for dessert.

10AM

Starting the day by reading those last ten pages of Firefight by Brandon Sanderson since I fell asleep in it the night before. Not a bad start to a Saturday with a cup of mint tea.

11AM

Breakfast time, a punnet of strawberries and three bananas, that’ll do just nicely.

12PM

The 30km bike ride begins. We picked ourselves up some cycling computers so, between ourselves, we’ve now turned into those noobs who compare their ride time and cadence with each other.

1PM

Well, not technically a 1PM photo, but I did take it some where in the hour. From home we headed into town to visit a new shop we’d found online (the internet told me they sold a brand of chocolate I like. Spoiler alert: they didn’t), then we went by the library and then off to work. Somewhere in the middle of that, we cycled down these cobbles.

2PM

Sometimes, all you’ve get left is your face as an option for the hourly photo. So it’s a face photo. Plus, Pete wasn’t about at work so I had to make do.

3PM

From work to the British Store. So many cobbles, so much wind but some pretty darn gorgeous scenery that makes up for all that.

4PM

A quick break before heading home with all our British goodies.

5PM

The three hours of cycling was totally worth it to get my hands on some more Almond Dream ice cream. As well as some gravy, crumpets, a selection of Linda McCartney’s veggie range to try, some oh-so-British bread and peas. It was a good day for my British soul.

And that’s another Saturday gone by in a sunny flash. Here’s to more of these mid-twenties, sunny Saturdays! 

Linking up with Jane and Louisa as always!
