    Compare to my house yours sounds like Christmas!

    I received my "fathers day gift" on Friday morning, which was.....

    Take my 6 year old daughter to school at 8am, stand in the playground with 60 other dads, watch the kids do a line dancing routine, and then get TOLD by the teachers to stand next to our kid and do the routine with them.
    It was fun, but carnage. As I spun round I almost wiped out two of my daughters mates.

    Finished off with croissants and tea in the dinner hall, squashed into one of those long old school table/stool contraptions.

    That sounds like a cool way to enjoy a Friday morning. I lost my dad 2 years ago, so I went and put flowers at the cemetry. It was a bit sad but he is in a better place now with no suffering so that makes me happier. Time for Glasgow now. Weather is miserable today (raining again) so will go on the train and surf the site while i travel. Hope all you Fathers on here have a really good day.

    Sorry to hear that.
    That's the flip side of fathers/mothers day. Pretty sad for people who have lost theirs.
    There was a little girl at my daughter's schools father day celebrations that I felt so sorry for. Obviously for some reason her dad couldn't be there as her mum was there instead. The little girl spent the entire time in tears and even had to join in the song that the kids sang to their dads. Must've been hard for her.

    Sad to hear, nice that you still show Yr love for him.

    Today i will spare a thought for a very close friend of mine who lost his life over in Basra, left behind a beautiful little girl. Now all she has to call daddy is a few photos and a gravestone in Hereford. Her day will be spent traveling to go see daddy. So sad

    Na the missus uses any excuse to by presents. She's a bit of a giver, were as I like to receive ;)
    Could just imagine you pirouetting in a swarm of kids haha. Classic

    I got two Home Made cards from the kids (or Spare Organ Stores as I like to call them) which have shed a couple of pounds of sticky Glitter all over the lounge and three nice Shirts from TM Lewin - however, as the kids are 4yrs and 18months and the Wife's primary job is looking after them, I guess I paid for them myself!

    This is my fathers day present, havent put it down all day, the only down side is it takes 40min to charge for a bout 10-15min flying time, still good fun though.

    On a sad note, gotta spare a thought for those families whose fathers will never be coming home, and all they have is a picture and a memory.
