I was introduced to Fat Mum Slim‘s Photo A Day in September last year by a friend of mine. After a few days, I’d get bored as it is such a big commitment. I hoped to be able to do a full month in December, but was so busy I didn’t have time to even think in the end!

Fast forward to 2015. I made a promise to myself to get through January with the hope to carry on throughout the whole year.

This year, FMS has cut the monthly prompts down into weeks, I love this idea as I don’t feel overwhelmed looking at a long list, especially as week 1 only had 4 days in it!


January 1st 2015

The weather was awful and with the prompt for today being ‘The Sky’ I didn’t get much inspiration…great start! I decided to have a browse through my iPhone archive and came across this beautiful sky from my holiday last summer.

We had been to Mt Teide, a volcano on the island of Tenerife. On the way back to our apartment we were met with this stunning view, above the clouds.


January 2nd 2015

I struggled with ‘Something Yellow’ as I don’t really ‘do’ yellow!

Another thing I plan to tackle this year is my dependancy on caffeine! I pretty much exclusively drink coke or coffee…not good! I’m not a water lover, but I’m trying to drink more each day, but I do need to top up with something fizzy, so lemonade will have to do for now…and it’s really yummy with Southern Comfort…!

‘Me Today’

As well as yellow, I don’t ‘do’ selfies either, so today I concentrated on what I was doing rather than a picture of myself with no make up and my hair a mess!

Having two weeks off work is hard when you are self employed. I have answered emails but not much else, so it was time to start preparing myself to get back to it! Saturday was mostly organising my week and trying to hit the ground running.


January 4th 2015

‘I hear…’ was Sunday’s prompt. I was ready for the week ahead, so spent the day being lazy and catching up on season 1 of ‘Revenge’ in time for season 4 to start tonight. I’m still way behind and I missed the whole of season 3 so the sooner I catch up, the sooner I can watch the new one! I can’t wait!


Week 2

If you want to play along, this is the weekly prompt for week 2, starting today, Monday 5th January 2015.
