Flogging Friday


I am trying my hand at this FlogYoBlog Friday thingy for the first time. I got the bug from Seraphim at Ah, The Possibilities!  and RRSAHM. So here goes:

It was Fathers’ Day last weekend. Remember back that far? I barely can, but Fathers’ Day last year is a standout. Not because Mr D was in any way exraordinarily deserving of recognition, although he is pretty good at the daddy thing. No, it was a stand out because I actually managed to make Fathers’ Day all about me. That’s right. I managed to turn the tide and each Fathers’ Day from that point forward has been and shall be forever more, a chance for me to revel in my own past glories.

“But How?” the weary mothers cry. “How did you manage to make dad’s day of glory a day about you?”

I entered a photographic competition, the Thanks Dad National Photo Competition and won with this corker of Mr D on the day the Little Lion was born:

I’m not sure if I won because of the strange role-reversal captured in the scene or because I was somehow able to take photos with our hefty, four-figure, professional-amateur beast of a camera not ten minutes after The Lion finally made it into the world. Either way, becoming an Award Winning Photographer on Fathers’ Day is a trumpet I am happy to blow for many years to come.

  1. That is so brilliant!! What an amazing photo, I love it. And well done to you, camera mama, I’m impressed! πŸ˜‰

    And…. Mr Linky’s blog hop code doesn’t get on too well with WordPress. It’s a pain in the bum an apparently they are trying to fix it. So, no linky list for you WordPress guys 😦 Sorry. Don’t worry about it though- come link up on Fridays anyway πŸ™‚

    Loving your blog, btw πŸ˜€


    • That’s a real bummer. I’m slowly putting everyone’s links up on my blog page anyway, so the love is still being shared (even if it’s not in a cool numbered list).
      Thanks for writing and for facilitating reading too! I’m having so much fun πŸ™‚


  2. Chuckling away here. That photo is GOLD. Ignoring the cuteness that is your weeping husband, would you check out the look on the Lion’s face. He’s saying “Where the F am I?!?!?” Happy FYBFing… I enjoy it as it’s a great way to get around to many really, really fab blogs. x
