Allow me to introduce the other men in my life, My gorgeous Daddy and my scrumptious little nephew, Gabriel.
For some reason they call themselves the Spiky Nana Backs- now this is a long story: Gabriel likes cars. To put it mildly, more than your average child. His favorite outing ever is a trip to the carwash in my Dads van, and it is for this reason that my Dad christened him an anorak (like a train spotter, yes?) . One day as they were getting ready to go to an extra special car wash, my Dad put gel on both their heads and told Gabriel he was a spiky anorak. Gabriel fell about laughing, misunderstood completely and forever after has called himself and his GanGan the Spiky Nana Backs.
I tell you this because it makes me laugh, because Finley walks around with a black and white photograph of Gabriel, who he thinks he is the coolest thing on the planet, and because Gabriel isn’t well today and because he lives so far away I can’t kiss him better- so this is a virtual hug!
And furthermore, after one senior moment after another, my clever Daddy has finally got his scrumptious furniture business online.
We got there in the end Dad!
