Wishing all dads out there a very Happy Father's Day - and remembering my own dad who is sadly no longer with us. I've got so many happy memories of him. His beauty routine was pretty quick - a dab of Brylcreme and a splash of Old Spice ....
.....as a little girl I would meet him on his way home from work. My favourite part of sitting in dad's lorry with him was having a swig of cold black tea that was left over from his lunch (???!!!!!) - can't believe I drank such awful stuff, but I guess it tasted good because it was my dad's :)
.....he really was a true gentleman, and his passions were few - gardening, boxing, wrestling (as a little girl I spent many a Saturday afternoon squashed into his armchair with him watching Mick McManus on TV) and walking - we'd walk miles on a Sunday afternoon after lunch, collecting hazelnuts and chestnuts, with my younger sisters trailing behind moaning because their legs ached or wanting to hitch a ride in the pushchair with my baby sister Becky! As he got older he loved walking in the Yorkshire Dales with my mum - this is a fav piccie of him, near Malham Tarn. My one regret is that we didn't have a family holiday altogether with him and mum - with all his daughters and grandaughters....
.....and finally a quick update on Jasper - he bounded into our lives and hasn't stopped yet! He's such a happy puppy, full of fun and energy - and has completely taken over the Foreman household!
