September Daily Photo Challenge – September 18th – Roof

This photo was taken in 2013 when I took my kids to London in August for a “River and Eye” trip. It was a combined London Eye and River Thames trip. It was a great day, and the kids really enjoyed themselves. They really enjoyed the mimes as well, the people who dressed as statues, not the silly ones who get stuck in glass boxes and you just want to punt them across the room screaming “THERE’S NOTHING THERE!” Anyway, as we went down the Thames, we saw The Globe Theatre which is a reconstruction of the one that Shakespeare used to frequent. The original burnt down as a result of a poorly placed torch. With a thatched roof, I think you have to be extremely careful where you place it. It is the thatch that drew me to using this photo for the challenge of “Roof”

A Trip Along The Pier

Last week I took a stroll along the Prince Of Wales Pier near me so that I could take some photos and spend time with my kids. We went to a café that is at the other end and had dinner. The main thing to be able to photograph along there is the lighthouses. Today there is a three masted boat which I am hoping will still be there on Sunday so I can get closer to it, but last week it was only lighthouses. Those things that have saved the lives of so many sailors. Here are a few of the photos from then.

Happy Father’s Day

Whether you are a married father, a single father or a single mother, I want to wish each of you a Happy Father’s Day. If you are a single mother, then that means you are father as well as mother, so happy father’s day to you.

If you are a married father, then I hope that your significant other makes your day extra special. If you are a two father marriage, then I hope that both of you have a great day, and if you are a two mother marriage, then you will both have to be father as well.

My daughter dislikes cooking. Ever since she scarred her arm on the oven, she is worried about going near it. This morning though, she woke me up with breakfast in bed which consisted of a hot cup of coffee and a bacon sandwich. She even gave me a hand made card. On the inside it says:

Dear daddy

Words can’t describe how much
you mean to me. I don’t know
what I would do without you. You
have always been there even when
I put you through hell. I don’t
mean to be a b***ch and I’m sorry for
every time I up set you. Dad you
deserve the best, you really are my
hero. I hope you can forgive me for
all the bad things I’ve done,
there’s a lot of times some parents
would have just given up (something 
private here) but you didn’t and I am so
thankful for that. Dad long story
short you’re the best dad anyone
could have and I’m lucky to call you

Happy Father’s Day!

Lots of love

Love you dad.
