Happy birthday Daddy, 60 Today

Today my dad celebrates his 60th birthday.

I am so excited to spend this special day with him.

I know everyone thinks their dads are amazing but I know my dad is ha ha.

I love my dad with all my heart.

Let me tell you a little about my dad.

He is always there for me and my family.

The endless nights I spent in the hospital with Olivia my dad was a constant visitor. Getting cuddles or holding her hand letting her know Grandad is was for her.

He was always there for her and for me too, especially when I really needed his strength. He was my rock.

Olivia like her sisters loves her grandad. Her eyes used to light up at the sound of his voice.

When the girls perform he is always there. So very proud of his granddaughters. His friends would testify to the pride he has of them. I’m sure they have been made to listen or watch videos of singing performances or Iceskating competitions over and over again.

Yet it’s not just the girls he opens his heart too. My two foster sons both have shared his heart. The man has been covered in vomit and dribble all given in love of course.

My dad is my inspiration. I have watched him work so hard for all he has achieved. I have watched him struggle but always caring for others first.

He Is an amazing man and besides him refusing to stow me away in his suitcase when he holidays at some amazing places I do love him with all my heart.

Happy Birthday Dad here’s to your sixties being full of happiness, laughter and love.

We love you xxx


The need for speed.

Sometimes the best moments can be found from the joy of others.

Today was one of those days.

Last year for Father’s Day I treated my husband and my Dad to a driving experience with Driveme. They both choose to drive the Audi R8. Now I know nothing about cars but it looked pretty awesome.

Alan took to the track first and from the look on his face he had an amazing time. He was followed by my dad who came off looking as if he wanted to go again.

Lets just say I may have started something with these gifts as both Dad and Alan signed up for their next experience.

Well at least thats fathers day covered for the next few years.

As for me I loved every moment of the event.

Watching the two men I care for most in the whole world have a great was time was amazing.

Both these guys mean the world to me so i’m so glad I got to watch them have fun.
