8.00 am: A cup of tea while I survey the garden in the morning gloom. Leaves everywhere - I need to rake the grass.
9.00 am: Try to persuade Angus to get dressed. This is unsuccessful and doesn't actually happen until about 10.30, and only after we've had a twenty minute battle.
10.00 am: I put some washing on and make the beds, taking extra care with mine, plumping the cushions, smoothing the quilt - I love making up the bed.
11.00 am: Arrive at the National Media Museum in Bradford. It's a fantastic place with enough for small people to stop them getting bored, like the interactive "blue wall" on the television floor, and lots for the grownups, like the superb history of photography exhibition. We hadn't been for years and it was just the sort of outing we needed on a grey, damp day when everyone is tired and irritable. Plus it's free. Free is good.
12.00 pm: We enjoy the Video Games floor. I say we, I mean John and the kids. Actually, I mean John.
1.00 pm: We're still here. We've had some lunch in the cafe and we're thinking about leaving soon.
2.00 pm: Wander back to the car park through the autumnal streets of Bradford. Having the camera out makes me look at the city anew, and there is so much beauty and spectacular architecture there when you look.
3.00 pm: After a quick stop off at Asda on the way, (hideous - so, so busy and the kids were a total embarrassment) it's home for a cup of tea and a crispy cake. These are amazing - John made them with the kids after school yesterday and I think there are about three left now. I'll post the recipe soon.
4.00 pm: I prepare the fruit for the Christmas cakes I'll be baking tomorrow, being very careful to pour all of the brandy over the fruit and none into my cup of tea.
5.00 pm: For a treat, Bella and Angus are allowed their tea (pizza and chips) on their laps on trays, and sit on the sofa in front of the tv. I know, I'm rewarding bad behaviour, tut, tut, but it made for a blissfully happy tea time and made my day easier.
6.00 pm: Bella and I snuggle up on the sofa in front of last week's Strictly Come Dancing. Bella wants Rachel Riley from Countdown to win.
7.00 pm: Bath time. I love that they are still small enough to be bathed together, and will sit there playing for as long as we let them. The favourite bath toys were the ones which are never intended to be bath toys, like these two.
8.00 pm: Tidy up. Cook some food. Choose a film to watch (End of Watch - quite good. Depressing.) and resume beer drinking.
Twelve photos for twelve hours. Not an original idea - certainly not mine - but lots of fun, not least because it makes me get the camera out and use it all day. As you can see, it's a pretty mundane old life round here and at times today was hard work. Tired children, grey skies and the blooming Redundancy Budget can sap the joy out of anyone's weekend, but when I look back there were many moments of laughter, silliness and joy tucked away throughout the day, here and there.
