  1. Your picture of Finn and Alfie cracked me up. I don’t think I’ve ever seen such a flat dog.
    Right now I am giving Finn’s dad a mental kick in the shins for missing Father’s Day. Should I be giving one to his current wife, too? IMO if she were any kind of woman she’d have insisted he spend the day with his son.

  2. It looks like a great day out. You and Finn are so fortunate to have so many supportive and loving people in your life.

  3. I grew up going to a caravan at Meols and New Brighton was always our big, special trip out each summer. Not been back for 5 years but now feeling very homesick for the Wirral! We used to spend every weekend and every school holiday there, escaping Yorkshire and enjoying Merseyside for the first 18 years of my life, its a very special place.
    Glad you didn’t ladle your ex to death – we would miss you!

  4. So sad Finns dad didn’t have him Father’s Day. My hubby’s eldest plays cricket Sundays but we had him the weekend and took him up to cricket in the morning. Inconvenience is worth it for your children. Hubby’s own dad never made time for him after he left them and now wonders why he doesn’t get birthday/Father’s Day cards. That precedent is set through childhood and will last a lifetime. It was hubby’s step father who got the Father’s Day card from him.

  5. Lovely post! May I suggest, if there is a repeat performance next year, one inserts the ladle sideways in an orifice not immediately visible? You might just get away with it!

  6. Your picture of Finn and Alfie is way too cute. That was one dog who wasn’t getting wet! Too funny.
    I too, think it sad that Finn’s dad didn’t spend Father’s day with him.

  7. Around Father’s Day over the years, I have often joked that they just don’t print cards with my sentiments on!! Maybe we should start marketing cards with those sentiments, there seems to be a HUGE market for them!!

  8. These are my favorite kind of posts from you (excluding, of course, the absolute disgusting behavior of your ex. But that’s not your fault.) Your ordinary days seem magically other worldly to me.

  9. I’ve noticed that Richard has been absent from the family “chronicles” for a while… may I ask if he’s well?
