I’ve been a lucky father today as for the first time in a couple of years I’ve had all four out my children with me this afternoon at my daughters for a BBQ on Father’s Day.
As well as celebrating with my four little darlings, I’ve had one son-in-law to be (just under six weeks to go to the wedding), one grandson, one daughter-in-law to be (just under twelve months until the wedding) all sat at the same table for tonight’s tea. The only one missing was my son’s girlfriend who is away at university in Bradford.
Matt had cooked up an absolute delightful Father’s Day BBQ with burgers, sausages, salmon & slow cooked pork on offer. My daughter and grandson will never go hungry being married to this man as he can certainly cook.
Father’s Day gifts this year included new tee shirts, a bottle of Jack Daniels, wine gums, money and a book about life growing up in my home village of Timperley in the 1930’s called Timperley Boy.
The next time we’ll be altogether will be in just under six weeks at Sam & Matt’s wedding.
But before celebrating Father’s Day with my gang we also had my dad and father-in-law to visit and celebrate Father’s Day with them.
