A Day in the Life

Today is Day 3 of the Blog Every Day in May challenge, and the prompt is to tell us about your typical day. So for this, I decided to do a little photo diary of my day yesterday. My everyday life is not particularly fascinating, but here’s a little glimpse:

The tree is the first thing I see when I walk out the front door. The bus stop is the place I spend half my life, I can count on one hand the times it’s been on time. I can’t complain too much though, as the driver did let me on for free yesterday. A quick stop at Tesco for office supplies, and it’s time to face the day.


Breakfast at my desk. I literally cannot face the day without breakfast. And you wouldn’t want me to… I’m so much less delightful when food deprived.


After breakfast it was lesson time. A few friends at work have taken it upon themselves to educate me with regards to TV and music. You’d think I had bad taste or something… In the past week I’ve had Entourage, True Blood, Frank Turner and Fall Out Boy’s new album. Score.

Lunch date with my bestie. She refused to feature in any photography, so instead I’ll show you the grotty-but-great caf we go to, and my strangely festive choice of sandwich.


Before long it was back to the office for the exciting business of phone answering, filing and lots of other exciting office escapades.

Nice and sunny as I left for the day… mostly a reminder that I need to invest in some sunglasses. Being unable to see properly I walk straight into the path of the Red Cross man. Again. Followed by more fun at the bus stop as I got to experience I really cringey Jeremy-Kyle-style bitch fight. Win.

The complex decision of what to read next (as I finished The Wizard of Oz for the first time that morning), I ultimately settled on All My Friends are Superheroes by Andrew Kaufman. Not the best choice I’ve ever made. I slight diversion in the form of Candy Crush Saga as I walked in the door. It’s really not my fault if that happens to be the screen that’s showing when I switch on my laptop…

Another perusal of some ‘BEDM’ blogs – I’m determined to leave everybody a comment or two by the end of the month! At this point I was really tempted to get my art book out, but for once I did the right thing and gave in to the pressing need to do some work. I’m in the midst of doing my final assignment for AA316 (the nineteenth-century novel), and not making the progress I’d like to. I guess that’s what the Bank Holiday’s for though, right?


And then boyfriend arrived home with a giant bag of Pick’n’Mix. Now, these are from Ikea so they’re all Swedish sweets and I really wouldn’t recommend eating all of them. It’s fine, I washed ’em down with a nice cuppa.


            The Masterchef final, a boyfriend-cooked dinner and an NCIS rerun rounded of my evening before a not-too-early night.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this little sneak peek into my life. See you tomorrow!

  1. I loved seeing a peak into your day and browsing through your lovely blog. I have realised that my post got it slightly wrong it should have been a typical day in my life….sorry! Well anyway I am enjoying this challenge and am looking forward too coming back and reading more!

    • Thank you so much! I definitely don’t think you got it wrong… I think the prompts are just there to jumpstart our posts… we don’t have to take them literally as long as we blog every day!

  2. It’s been so interesting to see everyone’s days! I had to switch prompts because my weekdays are so uninteresting, I’m going to blog about Sunday which should be better!

    My favourite part of this post is that you watched an NCIS rerun – always good to end a day with Gibbs! 🙂
