Mum and Dad on their engagement day
A huge Happy Father’s Day to my dad and all the dad’s, grandads, uncles and (cat dad’s) that give so much to their kids every day.
I feel so fortunate still to have my dad at this age and have had the chance as an adult to get to know him and understand him.
A couple a years ago a family crisis of my mum having a stroke became an unlikely chance for dad and I to spend time together as adults than we had previously.
Whilst mum was being her usual ‘can do’ self – moving mountains to in hospital to get well, Dad and I were flatmates. I flew from Paris to be with him and mum and dad and each night for the first time in our lives Dad and I sat down for dinner each night on our own and talked about our lives, books, gardening and how much mum meant to us.
We also talked about how much we meant to each other and how grateful he was that I came from the other side of the world to be with them both.
It meant the world to me!
Wishing you the best Father’s Day ever..
