The theme in this weeks Gallery is Everyday.

This week I’m going with a suggestion for someone after a photo they used for the Family prompt.
Spudballoo said she was so used to editing and touching up and setting up the perfect photo that she rarely photographed the every day. “Alas real life can’t be processed, glossed, trimmed and deleted with such gay abandon so I decided to snap a photo for this week and not ‘mess with it’ in any way” she said….also things we tend to not photograph because they’re not a happy or a perfect moment.

Being a part time working mum means we have two chunks to the week. One part is trying to spend quality time with Z, to catch up on housework, go to playgroups, cook and clean and generally try to get ahead. The second part involved getting up too early, rushing around getting ready, dropping Z off to my mums, going to work and then using the evenings to get ready for the next day. I’ve no idea how full time working mums do it but its sometimes crazy juggling everything with what feels like very little time to do it all in. In all the madness Z and I try to have at least breakfast together. That small part of our every day where he sits next to me, like a big boy, on the sofa or at my mums dining table. Before the madness of the day starts properly.

    I went back to work full time when daughter was 4 months old. It takes a lot of organisation lol but we too have always one breakfast. Always. It’s our time.

    Such a great photo to represent the ‘everyday’ that is certainly something that we do everyday and I do love our ten minutes sat at the table chatting and eating in the morning!

    That looks like a yummy breakfast! It’s hard juggling work and time with the kids isn’t it? But it makes your time with them that bit more special!

    That does look like a delicious breakfast! We only get to have breakfast together a few days a week (the children have theirs at the childminder four days a week) but I do love that time together.

    That is lovely, the everyday is not about the work and the grind but the quality moments and you captured one and you get that everyday! Lovely. x
