My dad, Chris, reads my blog even though he obviously isn’t a multi-tasking mummy. This is just one of the ways he has always been there to support me throughout my life.
I also need to right my wrongs in terms of failed Father’s Day presents. Last year I bought my dad the exact same travel wallet that I bought him for father’s day the year before.
So for that, and the other crap I’ve put my dad through, I need to make it up to him with experiences that will hopefully help him forget the times when I perhaps was not the model teenage daughter ( I think most of the crap I put him through was during my teenage years), it’s all about cleaning the slate. I’m not talking gadgets and gizmos either, I want to give him something to remember because to me, he’s the world’s best dad and he deserves it, 100 times over.
But which of the 2000 RedBalloon experiences do I choose?
For the stress I put my dad through while he was teaching me to drive in my ’86 Corolla, perhaps a V8 Race Car Driving Experience. Every Saturday my dad would wait patiently for me to finish work (I was a tea and tidy girl at a hairdresser) so I could drive home. Who knows what was going through his mind about the drive back home. I’m surprised he didn’t do what mum did once, out of pure frustration she made me get out of the car on the side of the road and then she drove off. But don’t worry, she did come back to get me. But dad, he was always cool and calm…on the outside.
Thanks dad, you’re the absolute best!
