Today is my Dad’s 65th birthday. He is officially a pensioner (as he keeps reminding us) and now has the additional income of both a pension, and paying reduced stamps (as he keeps reminding us). He intends to spend his additional cash on more holidays (as he keeps telling us!)
My Dad is absolutely brilliant and he has been so supportive to us, not only has he let us live with them for 18 months but he and Mum have supported us financially and practically to buy and renovate our house. I am massively indebted to him and whilst he is a terrible tease and tells terrible jokes I love him very much. My life would be infinitely poorer without my Dad around.
We had a family lunch at home and Mum made loads of yummy sandwiches and I made some nice little cakes. A low key day, but at his age he shouldn’t get too excited!
