I'm lining up my Scott Walker (Bisch Bosch), Bjork (Vespertine) and Frank Zappa Wink

A special day!

RE: Father's Day

I got Thornton's vanilla truffles, Empire magazine, a tin of Heinz tomato soup and a Journey playlist blasting from downstairs. No lie-in though, am at a karate tournament in Tolworth...

EDIT - it should be pointed out that nobody else in the house would have been able to fire up a Journey playlist until we got Sonos...

A surprise few hours out. Plenty of music in the car, though.

RE: Father's Day

The kids bought my iPad Mini cover on Thursday.

I was also given a couple of bottles of St Peter's Golden Ale and a Lincoln Blu-ray and some chocolate. (A three pack of M&S walnut whips).

Please really make my day (ahem) and tell me they were plain chocolate ones GRRR!!!

FWIW when my father was a boy he had three aunts whose husbands were killed in WW2 (bomber command, Dunkirk, etc.) before they reproduced.  My dad was spoiled rotten, especially his teeth, as all three aunts worked in the Frys (?) chocolate factories around Bristol and used to get free chocolate as part of their pay in the days before sugar rationing ended.  Dad used to trade the surplus for free Saturday morning cinema tickets, etc. etc.

'Spose the only saving grace was none of them worked at the Wills Tobacco factory in Bedminster Smile

Didn't get to listen to any of them Crying

Still, took eldest daughter out for driving lesson (well, I had eyes closed most of the time), trip to the dump then cooked lunch (I do the steaks:-) ).

Eventually managed some Beatles stereo from the box set, plus some Rodriguez and CDs. With Californian Pinot Noir of course.

All in all a good day.

Funnily enough, waking up in a field with my two oldest was my treat.

Yes I know, it's not surprising given my ovine avatar...
