Mass Observation Day | 12 May 2023

On the 12th May 2023, the Mass Observation Archive repeated its annual call for day diaries, capturing the everyday lives of people across the UK.

I treated the day like a Day in the Life entry and my key word was detail. I wrote the timed entries without much thought to structure.

I didn’t add any photos this year, simply because I hardly took any. I did give consideration to grammar and spelling. I like to think that my voice has come through. I like to think that there’s humour in some of my entries.

And I really like the thought that someone will read about my 12 May 2023 in the years ahead.

  1. Such a fascinating project to be part of – a real slice of history in the making! In years to come, I wonder if they will know what a Cavachon was? Who knows what dog breeds will be around then!

    1. You make a good point – I should edit the final version to include a description of a Cavachon before I send it off later today. 🤗
