So tomorrow is father’s day and a couple of days later it’s my Dads birthday so really this weekend is all about my Dad! I am an absolute daddy’s girl; I think the boy will have a right job trying to replace my dad as the most important person in my life. My dad’s only a little man in stature (haha not winding him up at all there) but he’s got such a big personality and sense of humour. Sometimes it can be rather juvenile, I remember when he used to pick me up from school and try and embarrass me by farting REALLY loud, but it’s this sense of humour that makes him adored by adults and children alike. I recall getting incredibly jealous as a little girl of other people with my dad. Once on holiday with some family friends I threw a huge tantrum when my dad took their daughter on the water ride haha.
My dad has worked away from home for as long as I can remember so I am always very protective of my time with him. As a child (and still to this day) I hero worshipped my dad, many of my own interests are down to his influence. Many of the things I love such as Norman Wisdom, The Beatles, Slade, Black pudding, Carry on films, Cider, Chelsea football club are purely down to the fact as a child I wanted to be like him so much.
Even with me living in the North and him working down South we still remain incredibly close, we speak all the time, he’s the first person I call if I have some news (like when I passed university) and I know he’s there for me no matter what. He’s always been quite laid back in parenting, I didn’t grow up with a lot of rules and that’s always allowed me to be very open and myself with my parents, my dad thinks it’s cute when I’m drunk for example, but I think that’s because I usually just slur over and over ‘I love you soooo much!’.
Of all the things I'm excited about in regards to the wedding walking down the aisle with my Dad is high on the list. We've even been practising, putting on my procession music, getting my bouquet out and everything! One of the things I'm most nervous about is his speech, without a doubt I know I'm getting embarrassed!
I’ve come back to the hometown for the weekend so I can spend tomorrow with my Dad and I can’t wait. Hope everyone has a lovely day tomorrow!
