The Gallery – 8pm

So this week’s Gallery theme is 8pm and what goes on in your house at 8pm. In our house it varies, depending on if I’m running to schedule, am early or running late, so these are the things I could be doing:

  • Walking the dog
  • Supervising L as she brushes her teeth, gets into pyjamas etc
  • Reading a bedtime story

Last night at 8pm I was doing really well and we were ahead of schedule so it meant L and I got longer time for snuggles and bedtime story reading:

It’s not a great quality picture but I didn’t want to take up too much of our reading time by rushing around looking for the “real” camera.

Now 8pm tonight is going to be a whole different kettle of fish as I’m off to the pub with other parents from L’s class, so I get to have some grown-up “me” time 🙂

This post was inspired by this week’s The Gallery theme over at Sticky Fingers.

    Awww your little girl is beautiful! Love that the teddy behind her looks like a fairy’s crown, at first glance I thought she had dressed up for story time!!

    Louise – thanks! I know – I looked at the photo for a while, trying to work out what it was! Having said that it is not unknown for her to get dressed up for story time!

    Sarah – thanks! The gappy teeth are slowly growing on me, it almost looks better with two spaces, when it was just one she looked a bit like a hobo!

    Laura – well this was a great 8pm, but then last night’s all went horribly wrong. Instead of going to the pub I ended up at our local hospital, getting checked out for early labour as I was having classic symptoms (I’m 34 weeks tomorrow). Fortunately all is well and the baby is still tucked up nice and warm inside, but it meant my lovely pub night was a write-off 🙁
