One Day

I haven't done a photo every hour post on here for a while, and thought it might be nice to share what a "typical" day is like here for me in Bordeaux. Let's be honest though, life is anything but typical right now!

I really like looking at these kind of posts by other bloggers. Did you enjoy an insight into one of my working days? Of course, weekends normally involve red wine, travel and going out for dinner. I hope to feature one of those soon!


  1. great journey... thanks... gotta get off to school myself asap... have a good day Gabs

    1. Glad you enjoyed Sonia! Hope you enjoy the holidays coming up.

  2. Oooh I love it, I want to do a day in the life post! Also, this must be one of your busier work days... :p

    1. Yes Rosie, the genius of Tuesdays means I get over half the working week done with, and then I can get on to more important things (naps, daytime wine, cat-hunting...)

    2. I have been photographing all day, inspired by your post...and yes it has involved a LOT of cat spotting...the best thing about France!
