Back soon

My darling dad turned seventy this year, and to celebrate we are all spending a week together on the Greek island of Kephalonia. For lots of reasons I just cannot wait but I am not the only one; our seven year old packed his own bag about a week ago - three pairs of swim shorts, teddybear, one t-shirt and plastic sunglasses,  what else does a beach dude require??

Some pretty flowers in the meantime. Have a lovely week.

  1. Hurray! Have a fabulous, fabulous time!!! And I hate to be the one to say it (so cliche) but the ol' ex-lifeguard in me won't let me not: don't forget your super-strong sunscreen! : )

  2. Fear not, we'll be slathering on the factor 30 and trying not to live up to the old adage, "Mad dogs and Englishman..."etc. My dad is the only silly one so we will have to be strict with him even though he is the Birthday Boy!!

    I saw John Hoyland, the chap that writes for G.I. today, and gave him your website details. I don't know if cut flowers are really his thing, but worth a go!

  4. Oh that sounds so perfect - cherish your Dad. I have always wished for a Dad and feel that I would have been a different person if I had had one who loved me! Enjoy! A-M xx
