Happy Father’s Day

17 06 2008

What a brilliant Father’s Day I shared with my family and others this year. There were 5 Dads present and 9 children for a barbeque. Sadly one daughter was over 11,000 miles away. But isn’t it a strange world? Anna is living in Wellington, New Zealand. Not wanting to miss out on the celebrations she decides to buy me a present. It’s something to complement one of my projects; a camera case for my new (to me) DSLR. She reaches out across the world and purchases it in Germany. It is duly delivered (and left unopened) two days ahead of time. It is really appreciated, and I’m so glad I didn’t make do with a Lowepro backpack which I thought about buying in Edinburgh airport the day before.

A friend of mine wrote to his kids (all adults) explaining that Father’s Day is just commercial exploitation and not to be celebrated with cards and the like. What a shame! It was a quality day. We met up with friends and family and Jenny and Sally barbequed for the first time ever. Just to see them engulfed in smoke made us realise that it’s a bit of a blokes’ thing. There were grandchildren sqawking and Gracie trying to join in the games.

This is no fun

You might be interested in the cards I got.  Inside the first card it said “Have a rest from building steps, making websites, and all your other “projects”! Well I’ve just started another project! It’s called “A Man Must Have a Project“.

I’m going to enjoy reading this! I’m guessing the picture is the step? Have you put a picture of that anywhere yet?
I wish I could have played a bigger part in you fathers day.

Love you.

Yep, you guessed right. If you click on “So what’s this blog about?” you’ll see the whole step. This page to be written up soon. We missed you on Sunday, but you were not forgotten. You never are. You’re as real to Gracie as anyone else she knows.
