It was quite a gloomy start with the weather predicting the tail end of hurricane Gonzalo hitting sometime today, it was certainly windy. This did mean that we needed to be indoors, so we decided on a stroll around the Garden Centre at Woodthorpe and meal in the restaurant.
He had lots of cards, gifts and telephone calls which was a nice start to the day.
The biggest surprise of all was the Christmas displays ,we had a really enjoyable hour or so wandering through them all. They were certainly a sight for sore eyes even if they are a little early. They are already advertising Breakfast with Santa and Christmas lunches, certainly worth thinking about for the Grandchildren at some point. For now, the day was all about my wonderful Dad and making it a memorable day for him.
Lunch was a simple but pleasant meal just what Dad wanted and enjoyed by us all. More of the family are coming over at the weekend so it will be quite the celebration.
Father! - to God himself we cannot give a holier name.
My father gave me the greatest gift anyone could give another person; he believed in me.
Happy Birthday to my wonderful Dad...
See you soon.
