Fathers Day here was not quite as expected.
DH had some lovely pressies and cards then spent a nice quiet morning gardening. He then sat down nice and relaxed to watch the Formula 1 Grand Prix live from Silverstone. Not long into the race we had a telephone call that DS had been involved in a road accident and could he go and help get the car out of the ditch and tow him home (he has all the kit in his van as both DH & DS are mechanics). Seems there was a blowout of the tyre and the car veered off the road. DS wasn't badly injured, very shocked and his chest took the brunt of it from the seatbelt. The car, however, didn't fair so well and needs a new bonnet/wing/headlamp. I cooked a roast beef dinner and DD arrived after she finished work so all was not lost as Dad did get some quality time with his family after all.
I lit my candle for my dad and my FIL as they are both angel dads and played both of their favourite songs and shed a tear or two, the candle i left burning for the whole of the day in the grate of the fire and blew it out as i went to bed. Much love to all those who have angel dads too and those who were not able to be with their own Fathers on this specical day.
Now to some stitching...Part 1 of the Hardanger SAL was stitched, and i made up a birthday gift - no reveal till its received though. Some progress on Dolly Mamas but had to hide it quick when DD came yesterday but Beatrix still hasn't seen daylight in June, i have to knuckle down and make progress, the end of the month is coming ever closer and i need to post a pic of this months progress LOL
