Today is the day to look at the men in your life and appreciate them. Fathers, brothers, sons and mates. They drive you mad, they have strange obsessions with engines and dead fish, they don't listen, they won't ask for directions and they can't admit they're wrong. But they love and nurture us, they catch cockroaches and spiders, unclog drains and fix the mixer. Even if they were the ones to break it in the first place. And they raise their sons to do the same. With one teenage boy in the house and another getting there fast, FF is now the go-to guy, rather than yours truly, who is fast becoming a member of the opposing tribe. It was bound to happen at some stage, and all I can do is be thankful that my boys have a strong role model to guide them through the start of their manhood. While I sit and watch. With pride and joy. Happy Fathers Day everyone.
