Father’s Day

I have been a step-dad to four children for the best part of 21+ years now.

But this day is for their real dad. Their biological dad, who they still see occasionally. I get that, completely.

However, as far as Ollie is concerned, I am his dad, the only one he has ever known.

So, he got me a card, and four packets of one of my favourite treats. Special soft nougat, with nuts.

His writing is improving as he gets older, and I will enjoy the nougat over the next few weeks. 🙂

  1. Hi Pete, I am glad you got treats from Ollie for Fathers Day. I don’t know if I ever told you that my dad is actually my step-dad. I am not his biological child. I love him to pieces and he is the reason I made such a big spread for Fathers Day. I don’t believe he sees me differently to his ‘real’ daughters.

  2. Good boy, Ollie! Here Father’s Day is celebrated on the 19th of March (Saint Joseph’s), so I always get the dates quite confused in any case. The nougat sounds like a great present and you look very well after Ollie, so not surprised he looks after you as well. Big hugs, Pete.

      1. I’m not much into sweets but nougat is something you don’t really see here. What I used to like was Halva. The kind I’m thinking of had a similar taste, not too sweet. What I could have called a blog was “Counting Calories”, something I did from age 15!!! And at BA it was counting kilos, money, passengers. I figure I’ll end up in a home with people asking “why is she always counting?”!

  3. I concur what you say about Sir Ollie, he’s not only his man’s best friend but he has good choice in nougat. I hope it was shared ??
