Hey guys! I'm finally back to the routine of twice a week posts, and I have lots of great stuff planned. I'm continuing my series of #someplaceinmylife with a guest post about Ella's day in her life. Ella blogs over at inkdreaming.com and you should definitely check if out! If you would like to know more about this series, read my post here, and if you'd like to submit a day in your life post, contact me here! Without further ado, here's Ella's day.
8:55 am + I wake up! It's kind of late for me, but I was honestly just so tired, plus I have a bit of a cold. I always sleep more when I'm sick! (I think everyone does.)
9:15 am + I spend a few minutes working on my blog before breakfast. Today's the day my blog gets a new name and a makeover - there's a lot of work to be done!
9:35 am + My family all has breakfast together - a Saturday tradition. This week it's poached egg, baked beans, tomatoes, fried mushrooms, and toast. Yum!
10:10 am + I get dressed and take a few photos for my blog and Instagram.
11:40 am + I finish taking photos, and I start editing my blog for the last time before it's new look is published!
12:20 pm + A quick lunch break is in order, consisting of pin wheels (leftovers from a school bake sale) and homemade mango sorbet. My family only eats one big meal a day (usually dinner), so the other meal (lunch) is often just a snack.
12:40 pm + I go back to working on my blog, and putting the finishing touches on it.
1:20 pm + My new blog design is finished, woo!
1:40 pm + I purchase my own domain, inkdreaming.com, and also a better version of Weebly, my blog host.
3:00 pm + I finally publish my blog, as well as updating links, editing my blog, and getting everything connected up.
3:10 pm + I'm ridiculously tired (thanks, cold!) so I get into bed and watch a few episodes of The IT Crowd on Netflix.
4:30 pm + I check my Instagram, Twitter, and emails. I also kind of got distracted by scrolling through Instagram, oops.
5:00 pm + I draw. I love drawing, but I don't really do it often enough. I also really want to use paints more often, but that will have to wait for another time.
6:20 pm + Dinner! We had homemade burgers + chips WHICH IS MUCH HEALTHIER THAN IT SOUNDS. We make the burger patties using lots of fresh veggies, and the 'chips' are wedges of potatoes sliced and cooked in the oven. Making your own food means that you know exactly what's in it and that there is no nasty fats or preservatives.
6:45 pm + I quickly send off a few emails, as well as planning a collaboration blog post for the future.
7: 30 pm + Most weekends we watch a movie as a whole family, and tonight we watched Life As We Know It. It was quite good!
9:30 pm + I climb into bed and read through a couple of people's blogs and read part of the book I'm currently reading, Blood Ties by Sophie McKenzie.
10:50 pm + I go to sleep. Sick people have early (earlier than usual) nights.
