Father's Day

It's Father's Day in this end of the world, I know it's not in America, but today is the day here. We've had a nice day, the two youngest (ha! when I say youngest, I'm talking 16 and almost 15) stayed for the weekend and Mike has just driven them home now. We've had a lovely roast lamb for lunch followed by dessert of chocolate (birthday) cake. Mr. T didn't know it, but we thought we may as well celebrate his birthday a few days earlier seeings he was here. He was most surprised.

I didn't think I'd feel the pang of loss today as I did, but this morning after speaking to my father-in-law on the phone to wish him a lovely day, I promptly burst into tears. Feeling such an ache that my dad wasn't with us any more.

I know that today is no different to yesterday and no different from tomorrow, but I did feel his loss very much today.

So with that in mind I'll show you a page I did for our family album that I don't believe I've shared on here. My dad.

So the thought that I will leave you with as I finish this post, is if you have the relationship with your dad that I did with mine, to go hug your dad just that little bit tighter today and if you can't be with him, then pick up the phone and tell him you love him. One day, you won't be able to do that any more.

Big hugs Carol. And it is a different day to every other day - it's a day specifically set aside to remember and think about your beloved dad.
