MY GORGEOUS DAD IS 85..and I am 51!!






I HAVE BEEN BAKING ALL DAY....(WELL MAYBE NOT ALL DAY..IN BETWEEN EBAYING..BAKING..SHOPPING WHATEVER).!!

MY GORGEOUS...WONDERFUL..VERY YOUNG FIT LOOKING DAD IS 85 YO TOMORROW (15TH)..I AM LISTING THIS A BIT EARLY AS PROBABLY WONT HAVE TIME TOMORROW..AND AM ACTUALLY DEDICATING THIS SITE TO HIM...
HE STILL DOES ALL THE SWIMS OVER SUMMER...PIER TO PUB..LORNE..ANGLESEA ETC ETC...HE IS A FREAK....HE SWIMS 3 KMS EVERY MORNING...GETS UP AT 4.30 AM...YES AM!! EVERY MORNING...AND SWIMS IN HIS LOCAL POOL..THEN GOES TO THE GYM FOR A WORKOUT..

MY DAD IS JUST THE MOST INSPIRATIONAL MAN ONE COULD EVER MEET..A PILOT IN THE 2ND WORLD WAR...THE BEST BEST FATHER EVER..AND THE MOST MAGNIFICENT GRANDFATHER....
IF THE WORLD COULD REPLICATE MY DAD OVER AND OVER AGAIN.IT WOULD BE SO MUCH BETTER..A LOT OF THE YOUNGER KIDS SHOULD TAKE HEED!!
ANYWAY ENOUGH OF THE SERMON..

I ALWAYS COOK DAD CAKE..NUTLOG ETC..(HE HAS ENOUGH BOOKS TO KEEP HIM READING FOR A YEAR..SO HE TELLS ME)..SO I BAKE STUFF FOR HIM. THROW IN A FEW BITS OF LOLLIES...
HE LOVES THAT...THEN I WRAP IT..WITH A LITTLE CARD TELLING HIM WHAT HE & MUM ARE EATING..PS..MUM IS ACTUALLY 86YO!!

AND JUST AS AN ASIDE..MY BIRTHDAY IS ALSO THE SAME DAY AS DADS..SO I AM 51 TOMORROW..BUT I DONT THINK DAD HAS COOKED ME ANYTHING!!

ordlHey Andrea,
HAPPY BIRTHDAY beautiful girl! & HAPPY BIRTHDAY to your amazing dad, he puts me to shame & he's about 52 years older than me! I hope you both have a wonderful day & both of you get spoilt rotten.
I got your email this evening but when I tried to reply to it, it kept bouncing back, let me know if you end up getting it one way or the other...
Love your bloggy friend,

Hi Andrea - wow your dad is amazing. Mine is 87 (just) and a WW2 Veteran as well- they just dont make gentlemen like that anymore sadly! I never thought of baking for him so that is a great idea. And for you HAPPY BIRTHDAY too, hope you get spoilt rotten and if you dont then just spoil yourself all year long, Mel xxx
