Chocs for Mr S's Dad
Probably both of the above for Mr S.
Predictable but good
Made this into a Father's Day card on Moonpig: https://instagram.com/p/36WyzZiUki/
Gonna get him some Whisky from Calais on Saturday if I remember.
ONLY JOKING! We're not in touch.
so i'm fucking excited.
And a quarter if I can be bothered.
So card will be late and Mum is buying him something from us.
Not sure what I'm getting.
99p from home bargains
this one but it says newcastle, obvs http://i4.coventrytelegraph.net/incoming/article9382675.ece/ALTERNATES/s1200/mug.jpg
he's either going to laugh at it or be really offended
it's not a real day
every day is technically father's day.
the line is "every day is children's day" when the whinge about father's/mother's day.
how come dads are so shit? #notalldads
this means that my two annual lie-in days have been reduced to one this year. I am FURIOUS.
trying to think of something originasl and end up buying a shirt and chocolates. This year he dictated a msg to his iwatch which ended up as a message that said LOUISE FATHERS DAY PINK SHIRT BOTHWELL SAINT SATIN COTTON SMALL COLLAR 15.
Thankfully my mother was able to decipher and so he's getting a lovely pale pink shirt that he spotted when he was out and about one day, and he will get some chocolate from wherever is doing 80% stuff on deal, and we are going for a late lunch/ early dinner en famille on sunday. I've missed on efather's day and it was because I was in London and unable ot get up that weekend and I was miserable, as I am always half convinced it might be his last, sop like to make an effort #morbid
I should do something for my Dad, but aside from having an actually ok interaction over dinner a few weeks ago while he was around, I just don't know what to get him. If his ego wasn't so fragile I'd probably send a kind of 'thanks for taking part in my creation' card but anything more would feel more than a little disingenuous.
God knows what my idiot saucepan will get me. But whatever it is I will cherish it. <3
but then he told me he'd sold his record player. so that's now mine and he'll get something proper half-arsed
I've... not sent anything yet.
a really faffy beer membership?
fathers day this year for about three months
It's great seeing my mums face as i put his drunken body into the passenger seat and say "good luck getting him home"
but with my mum on mother's day. got everybody in the family arseholed, my mother especially so, and then we were like, lol, we're going back to Glasgow now, good luck getting this tigress up the road, BYE.
and she had to go pick him up from miles away.
He's not drank for a month because he's been on pain killers. It's gonna be a good one
My dad can take a few, despite him getting on a bit and not being very much taller than me. However, he knocks it out the park every year without fail at his Christmas lunch. It's always two days before xmas (unless that falls on a weekend, in which case it's the Friday before) and he always takes all the staff to the same restaurant, and they drink through lunch and then there's a there our bit where we can never work out what he's done (best not to ask) and then he departs for the train* home around 9, but he never makes it off at the other end, because for some unknown reason he alights 4 stops early, in a very shady town, and goes into teh railway tavern for a small malt. it is a renowned and terrifying celtic pub and he likes to sing songs about henrik larsson being a wanker, and then we always have to go and rescue him from some ungodly scene.
EVERY YEAR, I don't understand why they don't bar him (well I do, but let's move on).
*this is a man who has a driver but he insists on getting a train on xmas lunch day.
Note- let's never let our dads booze together.
I'll have to stop my dad singing United songs in Leeds on Sunday, he sometimes does it sober.
I keep forgetting that, as well as being one, I also HAVE a father
Dunno. Not sure it even exists any more after that referendum. Hopefully
