The Photo Gallery: Week 209

Gallery logoHello and welcome to week 209 of The Photo Gallery.

Right now I’m looking at my diary for this weekend and it’s chocca. I mean little chance for me to sit down let alone relax or, heaven forbid, spend any quality time with my husband.
That kind of chocca.
Nothing in my diary is for me. Not a jot. Between rugby matches, birthday parties,  sleep overs and more rugby there is barely any time to squeeze in a cup of tea.

This is the point on the parenting journey I’m on. It’s ruddy exhausting. I feel like my head is full to bursting of dates and times and birthday presents to buy and places to be.

But here’s the thing: My kids are in a very happy place. They’re busy, they’re active, they’re with friends and they’re smiling.
I feel like my bit is a pretty small price to pay.

So this weeks Photo Gallery theme is: Being a Parent.

Interpret it any way you like. What does it mean to be a parent to you right now. What did it mean to your parents. Is there a photo which represents where you are in the parenting journey right now?

See you back here on Wednesday when it’s time to link up x

The Photo Gallery is a weekly feature for all those who love photography and photographs.
I set it up back in 2010 to give everyone an outlet to share and encourage and write really interesting posts around their pictures.

It has always been about being part of a community of like-minded people. It’s about sparking your imagination, being inspiring – and inspiring others.

But remember, you will get out of The Gallery what you put in, so try to visit as many of the other entries as you can, say hi, discover new people, welcome them in when they discover you, be generous with your comments.

Remember, you can also share your entry via:
Twitter by using the hashtag: #TheGallery
Or by joining in the Gallery communities over on Pinterest and Google +


If you’re new here, here’s a post to tell you all about what the The Photo Gallery is all about and how to enter.
And if you want to make sure you don’t miss any prompts or entries in future, make sure you subscribe to the Sticky Fingers blog and get all prompts delivered directly to your in box.
Go on, clicky click away, you know you want to …

If you want to join in with The Gallery and showcase your photos, come back on Wednesday and when my Gallery post goes live, add a link to your post on the Linky below mine.
The link stays open until the following Tuesday, so you have plenty of time to join in.
And ANYONE can join in.
