Happy Father's Day

Happy Father's Day to my fabulous dad. He's always been so caring and loving and even looks after Grumps when I go away with Rob. This is a picture of him with his youngest grand-child, Amelie, who was born on Christmas Day 2010.

I hope he has a lovely day tomorrow.

Today, I've been delivering the quarterly parish magazine with Rob as the person who usually does this round is away. Well, Rob did the running back and forth through showers from house to house, whilst I tootled along in the car shouting orders. He said, "You obviously take after your grandfather." (He was a Major in the army!).

I've been enjoying Ken Follett's Fall Of Giants, which is the first of this trilogy. You can hear 3D Audio if you go here. Although this is clever, I have to admit that I found it a little off-putting, so will just read the book as I usually do as the sound effects are in my imagination already.

Hope you have a great weekend.

We certainly need all that rain here in East Anglia.

I don't suppose that my dad knows that it is Father's Day today despite the cards and presents. Still, I know, and I hope he has a good day.

Happy FD to your lovely dad too, Debs.

I can't wait for the sunshine to come back, I've had enough of this rain now.

bernadette - bless him. I hope you have a good day too.

Lovely pic Debs!

Thanks for the link, I have tried to listen to Harry Potter on AB but my mind tends to wander and I miss half the plot. I love the concept though.

Debs Carr said...

DAB - I've had enough of the rain here too and I hope the sun returns for my daughter's prom night on Friday.

Will pop over and visit your blog now.

jan - sorry to hear that. I know I miss my grandmother very much still and she died 19 years ago. I even went to phone her the other night! How mad is that?

talli - It's been raining here all weekend too, but at least it's kept me writing, which is a good thing.

cheryl - thanks.

I hadn't come across this AB before but think its very clever, even if I don't think it's for me.

A lovely tribute, and photo, Debs!

I haven't read any K.F. but I loved the TV adaptation of 'Pillars of the Earth'.
