Happy Birthday Dad

My Dad would have been 72 today, so here are a couple of pics of the lovely man.

Above: very young and handsome looking - possibly in the '60s (before my time anyway). Cant believe those sandals, what were you thinking Dad!?!

Below: having a drink and a laugh, how I like to remember him :0)

We are going to mark the occasion by - can you guess?? Yes - baking a big cake! How predictable we are.
There are a couple of things going on just now which are a bit too personal to blog about, for now anyway, so I may be a bit quiet for a while as they are taking up much of my headspace.

Good luck with the personal stuff, hope you figure it out!

Thanks Debs, felt like the blog needed a change, and as the beach is one of our favourite haunts that pic fitted perfectly x

Cheers Lisa, I'll get there! x

Tried to leave a message ages ago--but the site kept crashing. My dad would have been 72 this past April. The kids and I had some cake too! But I was thinking about you that week!

Thanks Elizabeth. Its nearly six years since he died (although in a way it feels longer, because he disappeared before that through the dementia). Still miss him, but I was lucky to have him as my Dad for all those years :0)
