A Day in the Life of Sophie Elvis


What does a day in my life look like? A few days ago, I took the 'Day in my Life' photography challenge where I photographed everything I did in a day. Today I'm going to be sharing my photos.

At 7.00 am, Mum decided to go for a run before breakfast. My ankle still isn't up to running, but I decided to come with her for a walk. I brought my camera with me to take some photos.

There were a lot of puddles because it had rained the night before. I spent a lot of time trying to get the perfect reflection photo.

When Mum had finished running, we headed home for some breakfast. I cooked a pan full of porridge for Mum and Dad's breakfast. Then I made myself a slice of peanut butter toast. (I don't like porridge.)

After breakfast, I helped clean up the house. I didn't end up take a photo of me cleaning. It didn't seem interesting enough.

Then I settled down to make a plan of action for my day. I listed out everything I wanted to do in my diary.

I then turned on my computer. I wanted to answer some blog comments, write an email and (most importantly) edit the photos from my brother Callum's wedding. I had been putting off doing this job off for a long time. Recently I saw the photos sitting on my hard drive and I decided that I had to edit them.

At 10.00 am, I took a break from editing photos to have some morning tea. Gemma-Rose had made some chocolate banana bread for us to eat.

Once I had finished eating, I went back to editing. I was getting close to finishing all the photos.

By midmorning, I had edited all the photos! It was such a relief to have finished them. All I had to do now was transfer the photos onto some DVDs so that we can send them to family members.

By the time that I'd finished that, I was ready for lunch.

After lunch, Mum and I walked down to the hairdressers to get our fringes trimmed. We're lucky to have a hairdresser in our village!

When we got home, I went into my bedroom to do a Fitness Blender workout. It was a very long pilates routine. The workout was hard, but by the end of it, I felt pleased with myself for doing it.

Once I'd had a shower, I settled down with a cup of tea, a mince pie (yes we're still eating Christmas food) and a book.

I had only one last thing I wanted to achieve that day. I opened my computer again and started to write a new blog post. You can read the post I wrote here. It's about another photography challenge I've done recently.

By the time I'd finished my post, I’d decided to end my photo challenge even though it was only 4:30 pm.

Does your day look anything like this? What other photo challenges should I attempt?
