The Gallery took a holiday last week which was very lucky as so did I! How lucky am I that, as yet, I've not missed a gallery (lucky or sad)...I only got off the plane from Italy at 5pm yesterday so it's been a bit of a scramble to get this post prepared.
I didn't want to miss this as it's 'Dads'.
I could write about what a great Dad my husband is to Mini Cheddar but I think that I've talked about that a few times.
So this is a post dedicated to my Dad.
My Dad is a great man. He's done so much with his life and I'll always be proud of that - he's run local committees, been a local councillor and a core member of the community, he's even been to the Queens Garden Party (oooh get him!). He has strong opinions and can sometimes be set in ways but he's the first to admit that and I love him for his honesty. I love the fact he loves his golf and has himself a hobby that keeps him fit and active.
He has always worked hard and looked after his family financially. Mum and Dad always went without when we were younger and they didn't have much money to splash about. Now my parents are financially secure and they are loving their retirement...and I love them.
He's also the perfect Grandad to Mini Cheddar and she loves him dearly.
If I'd known about the Gallery theme before today I would have easily captured the perfect moment yesterday at Liverpool airport. Dad came to pick us up and 10 nights without Mini Cheddar seeing her Grandad sent her into squeals of excitement and stamping of her feet and then a mad run towards him for a big cuddle.
Sadly, I didn't capture the moment but I'll share with you one of my favourite pictures I took of Mini Cheddar when she was only 6 months old and her Grandad - my wonderful Dad. It's not exactly highlighting my photographic skills, far from it, but I love it for the look on my Dads face and the touch of Mini Cheddars hand on his face.
Now head on over and check out all the other entries...
