There was something in the sky when I woke up this morning and I don’t know what it was.
It was brightish, roundish and yellowish and I was sure I’d seen it somewhere before, I just can’t quite remember when or where….
Ok, it wasn’t scorchio… and it did pour down later, as I’d left Dave without a rug (again) and left my bike outside – but the sun was out, kind of, which was a definite improvement on yesterday.
I celebrated with a sunshine smoothie for breakfast:
Frozen mango, banana, Kara coconut milk, xanthan gum and plain soya yoghurt, topped with home-made granola… yum.
I then got on my bike and went to ride Dave – and to see my dad, to wish him happy Father’s Day.
When I was little, he always maintained he “didn’t believe in” Father’s Day and that it was a “load of rubbish”. But one year, when I was about 12, that he said, a bit wistfully, “It’s Father’s Day today…” 🙂
I bought him this card, which he found very entertaining:
Last year, I made him fudge, which he loves. But as that was full-on butter, sugar, condensed milk, etc – and he ate the lot in one afternoon – and he’s now on a bit of a health kick, I was a bit stumped.
So I made him this instead:
He did say “this looks like what I bought to feed my mouse when I was a lad” but he was really chuffed 🙂
My dad’s not one to show emotion, or to feel comfortable when other people do, so I couldn’t tell him he’s the best – but I mean it. And I think he knows. Happy Father’s Day Dad xx
