A Lovely Fathers Day

My third Fathers Day of me being the father this year.
We spent it in a fairly relaxed way. Phoned my dad first thing then a bit of gardening in the morning, cut short by rain, so we then decided to continue to sort the mess that is the spare room, to inch us closer to the girls having a room each and kicking Melissa out of ours! 
What could be better than being woken up by these two trouble makers?
 We took a trip to Dunelm in the afternoon to buy blackout blinds and a few other bits before coming back where I was overcome with the urge to put up shelves. We have shelves in every place we can think of to increase our storage as much as possible. It's hard work though as the girls go a little mental every time I start the drill up and cling to their mum as if their lives depend on it! It doesn't make me very popular I'm sure.
A great gift from my girls
And after I've finished writing this I'm going to settle down with my father day gift and bookmark all the weird and wonderful fruit and veg I want to grow in the future. I think owning this book might be dangerous for me! 
I hope everyone else had a good fathers day where ever they are.

  5. I think on Fathers Day you are supposed to put your drill away and have a rest! But sounds like you had fun putting up the shelves. Gorgeous photo of your girls I have a similar one of my two girls at that age. My daughters are older now and they presented their dad with a large bottle of Malt - he was extremely pleased. Enjoy your book it looks interesting - I watched his TV series - some good stuff.

    1. I don't think I ever enjoy putting up shelves but it always feels so good when they're up and you can use them. I think I prefer the book to the bottle of malt as I've never been a fan of spirits.

    1. What I've read so far has been excellent. Its nice to have a gardening book that looks at things completely differently.
