My my how time flies....

I can't believe it's half way through the year already. And I'm behind already. How does that happen? I have a list of things to do today and it doesn't include a quick post here. And yet, here I am.
I wanted to post yesterday and had no time.
Happy Father's Day to anybody who is or stands in place of a father to somebody.
I have two special fathers in my life.

My Dad, who has had a bad year so far. He was diagnosed with throat cancer in March and since then life has been a round of doctors, operations, radiotherapy and struggling to get better. He still can't taste things, still has pain (more of an ache now, thank God) when he swallows and finds the tiredness of being ill tiring. He was never a sit still man and was working 3 mornings a week until they finally dragged him in for the operation. But..... it was throat cancer, thank God which has a good prognosis. And he should be OK again afterwards. Love you, Dad.

And my hero, the Father of my children.

We gave him books for Father's Day and cards that we made. We took him to Church where nobody even mentioned Fathers and then to see Kung Fu Panda 2 (love it; I am Po) and back for pasta and meatballs. Then a walk in the evening sunshine while we hold hands and appreciate how lucky we are to have him. Thank you, honey, for everything you do. Love you x


  1. Your Fathers day sounds lovely! I do hope your dad makes a good recovery!

    Thank you for your recommendation! I do have a honeysuckle, well I'm not sure if it's ours or the neighbours to be honest as it grows in the hedge!
    The scent is divine so I could plant another one!

  2. What a lovely post.
    Hope your dad is well on the road to recovery.
    Sounds like a good day all round.
    As to the Countryware. I like it, but no longer really love it, it's got to go, as long as someone wants to buy it!

  3. The two men in your life look so sweet -- kind and gentle. Loved this post!
