Starry starry night! ... just received this amazing little dress for the Eva for the Christmas party celebrations... absolutely love it... and only £11.50!! Love a bargain... now wondering why I haven’t bought myself something sparkly?? 🤔🤔 (always bottom of the list!) ... off she goes to start searching for sequins! ✨✨ A new piece of clothing always makes you feel special so never for guilty for buying something... don’t forget we only live once in this world and I for one am not going to look back and regret buying too many #clothes, #shoes and #bags!!
As everyone is posting pics of their 🎄, Christmas shenanigans and snowy fun I am thinking back to our @designated_pa Christmas (post/after party) drinks at the beautiful @bookingoffice as my only source of anything Christmassy. I feel like I went through some sort of mental and physical torture today as I had to clean my oven OUTSIDE in the SNOW 😬😬😬😬😫 (don’t ask) -damm all those lucky bit**es who were organised enough to book an oven cleaner (‘sorry’ they said ‘no bookings available til after Christmas - Whaaaaatt?!?!?) Still no tree up or decorations (although to appease my Christmas obsessed daughter I have covered her entire room in tinsel!) I think one more week and final push to get the kitchen renovations complete (ish) and then big clean will start and the tree can go up! Phew - pass me a 🍸
Im lying in bed this morning and my tummy is rumbling! 😋... and thinking back to Wednesday. I had the pleasure of meeting Pranee, - the owner of @gigglingsquid at the opening of the new Wimbledon restaurant. She was wearing THE most amazing dress and very sweetly came to ask whether we had been looked after during the evening. I can honestly say it was a resounding YES. The food was absolutely delicious and the bubbles were flowing. 🥂... and the decor, well you need to go and see for yourself... a little like stepping into a beautiful Thai garden 🌸🌿🌸🍃🌺🌹In fact what stuck with me more was the amazing hospitality, service and generosity of food and drinks... which is often lost these days. It’s the personal touch - costs nothing but is absolutely priceless. @mumswithoutlimits and I will definitely be back! Thank you @gigglingsquid. I wish you very success.
It really is ... #christmascountdown 😬😬 ... so not prepared... no kitchen (yet) no presents 🎁, no tree 🌲, no TIME! 😬 But all is not lost... it’s only the 1st of December! A whole 24 days - phew! Yesterday we received our first #christmascard .... from @screwfix_uk 😂😂😂😂 Now where is my coffee? ☕️ #coffeelover #fridaymorning #friyay
Last week I had one of those days when everything goes wrong and it seems the weight of the world is on your shoulders and actually the only option is to breakdown and admit defeat. I did just that... and couldn’t help myself.. floods of tears and several blubbering sentences about how I can’t take it anymore and it’s all too much. 😥😥😭 BUT.... with the help of my family and amazing husband and a little self talk... I picked myself up again and carried on... feeling slightly better for letting go (just for a second mind you😳) after all I am a strong minded individual brought up singlehandedly by my amazing mother (sadly my dad died when I was young ) so I am hard wired to be strong, in control and to keep my shit together. Today is #mumtakeover today thanks to @bbc5live - with @staceysolomon and others talking about (and making it OK to talk about ) mental health and mums. Join the conversation. 🙂
Following the theme of the day - after #princeharry and Meghan’s #royalengagement I reminisce back to our own engagement on April Fools Day 2010. (Only my husband would pick this day to propose 😳 - after 8 years) ahhhhh.... those were the days when we were relaxed and carefree, were able to quietly read the Sunday papers.... in bed. Went out out EVERY weekend, enjoyed leisurely evening/dinners out together and there was a general peace and quiet in the house. Fast forward 6 months and day 3 of our honeymoon. - wham - PREGNANT! 😮😯 Life is now a little less relaxed, a lot less quiet and we have given up all hope of ever having a quiet morning reading the Sunday papers! ... but oddly we wouldn’t change it for the world. 👨👩👧👦
Hanging out with my cheeky chap! He is meant to be poorly 🤒 but in true male style yesterday he just lay on the sofa under a blanket shouting demands for TV, snacks and medicine 😐 He will definitely be well enough to go back to school on Monday and note to self ‘don’t fall for the - I’m too ill to go to school’ trick this early on! - he is only 4! #cheekyboys #mummysboy Have a great weekend all... I will mostly be painting walls 😧😳😬 #kitchenrenovation #decorating
Had fun last night at the @mumswithoutlimits cocktails @suburban_bar Such a great bunch of ladies and great to meet some new faces. Will definitely be booking in for a session with @cocomamastyle and always love catching up with @thefirstsmurf - did you buy that black top on your way home?! Thank you @londonparisyorkshire for organising. Didn’t manage a game of table tennis @smashwim_sw19 so will be back! 😉 #Repost @cocomamastyle (@get_repost) ・・・ Instashoes on an instafloor. I’m all about the stars. Here’s a #fridayfeet from last night but it was worth snapping and saving for today. Great evening meeting some fab ladies for cocktails @suburban_bar #wimbledon hosted by my gorgeous client @mumswithoutlimits. If you’re a local biz looking for a social media whiz- she’s your girl! #mumsnightout #mamastyle #whatiwore #shoefie #highheels #momstyle #lwiw #seeingstars #fbloggersuk #fashiongram @smalltownthreads #FRIDAYFEET
OMG 😮... (literally the only time I have used those three letters!) ... THE tap has arrived. Incredibly sad how excited I am that I have this beauty in my life... Totally wiped out of my mind how much I spent on this - sort of a conscious amnesia. And anyway cost per day over X years.. probably amounts to a few pence! 🙂😜 Thank you @perrinandrowe for making something of such beauty... even my husband is happy as it has a spray tap! #winwin #imsadiknow
So the KITCHEN has arrived! ... at 8pm this evening... 🤔😶 The one thing R was most excited about where the legs... quote “wow... look at the legs - they are the best #legs I have ever seen” 😯😯🤔 ... and the fact that they gave us tea and biscuits too... which to be fair is quite nice (and unexpected) Thanks @diykitchens - missing a few bits though so hopefully they will arrive soon otherwise they will feel the wrath of #wimblemum 😈
TAKE THAT MONDAY! #mondaymotivation is what I need today... and now for coffee. ☕️ #letsdothis Have a lovely week all... see you further down the line! Thank you Louise @pedalstudio for pushing us this morning (will still prob never ride as fast as her!) But another 16.3miles towards my 1000 mile goal for @alzheimersresearchuk #cyclingdowndementia Link to donate in bio ⬆️
Feathers everywhere! On the roof, the porch roof, upstairs windowsill and the ground. We suspect a sparrow hawk was the culprit, but can anyone identify its victim, please? #feathers #windowsill #roof #ground #flagstone #pebbles #victim #identifyfeather #whosefeathersarethese #whatbirdisthis #nature #wildlife #wimblemum #greatbritishwildlife #greatbritishbirds #birds #birdsofinstagram #autumnwatch #autumn
Thank you to the kind man who served us in @dipflippo Wimbledon this evening... he was the PERFECT example of what good customer service should be. V friendly, polite and even offered my kids a FREE bowl of ice cream for dessert and ice cream is not even on the menu. Money just couldn’t buy you the great experience he afforded us - so THANK YOU kind man with the beard! If you are in Wimbledon and fancy a special burger then definitely try it out. The fries 🍟 are possibly the best I have ever tasted! (Quite a statement... but true fact!) #kindnessmatters #niceman
The leopard 🐆 is back! #loveleopard A day of running around and chores. Kids are off the see Paddington Bear2 with Nanny so I’m going to have 2+ hours without children.... what to do?!?? 🤔 Plasterer finishes today and new kitchen arrives next week... just need the bloody expensive taps to arrive 😬 - almost remortgaged the house to get these taps 😂😂 - don’t let me down now. Where are they?! We are sooo close to completing the #kitchenremodel - final push and then we can stop talking about it! 😂😂
Congratulations to @hoxbycollective for winning the @digitalmums #workthatworks award 🥇at the #wimawards2017 awards last night. I am very proud of @designated_pa being shortlisted alongside some amazing companies and proud of our inspiring team and proud knowing we are giving women great opportunities to work on a flexible basis and offering them the support they need to succeed. 👊🏼👍🏻🙅🏼 Also Met Richard from @digitalmums and had a nice chat - he is super nice. Slightly sore head this morning as @mumswithoutlimits and I enjoyed the fabulous bar at the Ham Yard Hotel but head down in power work mode today and it’s #friday. 🙃
So @thefashionablepan said wear red lipstick and it will make you feel confident and amazing... so here goes. 🤞🏼🙂 Off to Women in Marketing Awards @ the The Ham Yard Hotel. Wish @designated_pa luck 🤞🏼Would be amazing to win but actually super proud we have been shortlisted for the @digitalmums award. Such an amazing achievement for our company.
We are LUCKY THINGS! Great evening at the @luckythingsblog meet up ... with some inspiring and stylish and funny women. Thank you to @thefashionablepan and @mumsthatslay_crew 💛💜 Pops of colours for Kay @mumswithoutlimits and I tonight - (very unlike me) and we were well behaved too (only 2 🍸🍸) as we have another exciting night out tomorrow night (did I mention @designated_pa have been nominated for an award and the winner is being announced tomorrow at the #womeninmarketing awards - super excited! 😁) Lovely to meet new faces @themummycoach.co.uk @stylewithconscience @fitness.doctor.mama @annasjamjam @cleo_and_the_brace @laura.otway (and others which I can’t remember or connect with as I didn’t have any phone reception for some bizarre reason) Huge thank you as ever to Sunita for bringing together a lovely bunch of people. 💜❤️
We are slowly getting to the point where I can start doing the fun stuff and deciding on colour schemes, accessories etc rather than discussing plumbing,bricks and electrics🙄(yawn) ... so exciting although with that comes so many DECISIONS! 😳 Need my own interior designer! #thirdworldproblems 😂😂 Super busy day today with meetings in London and then later for the @luckythingsblog event tonight! #funtimes Have a great Wednesday!
Juggling way too much at the moment including milk (literally 😱!) When did life get soooo busy?!? Sometimes (quite often in fact) I contemplate giving it all up and going to live on an island and wearing a flower in my hair😂🌸🏝 I honestly am wondering if you have more than 2 children and a single parent how the hell you manage. Anyway I’m saying hats off to all the mum jugglers out there today - we can do this👊🏼!!
Last year I ran 100km and this year I’m cycling 1000 miles as part of the EPIC Cycling Down Dementia Challenge - all for this amazing lady and the amazing work the @alzheimersresearchuk do. So the challenge is set and now I just have to set up @strava and get pedalling! 🚴🏼♀️🚴🏼♀️ If any of you can spare a few pence to donate that would be truly brilliant. Dementia is now the no1 reason for death in the UK and still no cure and support for loved ones is often left to the families who manage the process often over a long period - watching their loved ones fade away. I think most people will be affected by this disease in some form and whilst it may be too late for my mums generation and even for mine I hope that all the good work that is done now can help my children not have to endure the cruelness of this silent disease. Dig deep peeps. 🙏🏼 Link in bio.⬆️ #family #familyiseverything #bestmum
Caught just in time! This game usually ends up with Bramble shut in the spare room. I thought I'd solved that with a door stop. Looks like I'll have to find another one for this room 🙄#mischief #playtime #wimblemum #wilmaandbramble #dontgetshutin #cats #rescuecats #adoptdontshop #adoptapair #catsofinstagram #caughtintheact #motherandson
Yes it is! 🍹🍸Mums Without Limits cocktails @suburban_bar Wimbledon on 23rd November to be more precise! And... TICKETS ARE NOW ON SALE! (Via link in bio). 2 cocktails, nibbles and the finest company in Wimbledon all for a mere 15 quid (and what can 15 quid buy you in London these days?!) Also by a very convenient twist of fate, Suburban Bar are selling Prosecco for £4 a glass that night too! 🍾💃🏼 So we can all mix our drinks like we're students again and temporarily forget we have to do the school run the next day 😱😬 There is a limited number of tickets so if you do want to come, please don't wait too long to buy your ticket- I don't want anyone to miss out! 😘 📷: @jenngietzen - love it!
#tb to last year and a weekend away with my family for my birthday - beach, winter sunshine, gigantic hot chocolates and #familyfun. This year is quite the opposite... E has tonsillitis, husband has an ear infection - the house is mid renovations and we are living in 1m of living space. 😧 No kitchen and no meal out as at home nursing my poorly baby girl. A 3am wake up call and probably another night of uninterrupted 💤. #mumlife certainly comes first on every level. My former self is pining for buckets of Gin & Tonic and Champagne whilst flirting my way through an evening of fun, frolics and dancing! Instead I settle for a #dirtybird burger courtesy of @deliveroo and a glass of water (made serious school girl error and packed all the wine glasses and fridge is dry😐) Anyway - here’s to the next one! 😬😬 Happy Bonfire Night 🔥
The look of sheer joy when I suggested to E&C that they could draw on the walls!! #priceless ... mind you what followed were strict instructions on how this was the only wall in the house that they would EVER be able to draw on.. remember pens are for paper! Sometimes I sound like such a bore. 😳 I might even draw my own picture... feels good to 'do something you shouldn't' once in a while...come on tell me about the things you have done which you really shouldn't have!
I soooooo need this in my life 😊... guilty of getting too involved with some things ... because I care and passionate ... but that often leads to too much stress.... anyone got any tips for ways to 'not give a f**k' ?! Anyway actually read this? Would it help my cause?! 🤓
Wow a glorious autumnal day... I've resumed a position on the park bench to work whilst the kids play. #flexibleworking win win. Absorbing some vit D too. 🙂 So lucky to be able to be at home for my children during half terms to let them rest and recuperate ready for the next new term at school. Kids clubs are handy but I love to see my kids kick back, relax, chill and just BE at home as their lives are so busy most of the time. In fact: Not to self: must let myself do that sometime🙈
First of many activities for the kiddies today... another day of ballet, football, parties, shopping and everything in between. TBH I am just happy to be out of the house and away from THE DUST. 😬 #homerenovations Where have the days gone of lazy weekend mornings... long breakfasts and browsing thru the weekend papers.... LONG GONE... that's where!! 🤣Happy Saturday all. ❤️
Wilma is #myblackcathero because she looks after us all. Firstly she takes care of her son, Bramble, with lots of cuddles, grooming and crazy new hairstyles (check out his punk look in the photo 😂). She eats his food so he doesn't get fat and plays with his tail so he keeps fit. She also looks after me by shouting loudly and nibbling my elbow so I don't forget to fuss her. She carries her favourite toy mouse around the house so we can trip up on it and know she's been thinking about us. In the photo she has decided that Bramble could share it. Wilma is always thinking of others ☺️ #blackcatday #wilma #wilmaandbramble #wimblemum #blackcatsrule #tabbyandwhite #adoptdontshop #adoptapair #rescuecats @catsprotection @catsprotection_ncac @prestoncatsprotection
Monday morning commute - something I haven't had to do for a while.. although this morning I'm going further afield to Cambridge. Anyway already an altercation on the train which means I am delayed and probably going to miss my connection and my meeting 😬... honestly #workingfromhome is SO much more productive. Travelling is time wasted. I think I must save 10 hours a week not having to commute (as I think it takes about an hour to get anywhere in London doesn't it! 😊) that's a whole days work! Companies wake up and take note... your employee can be more productive and time efficient by #workingfromhome and offering #flexibleworking - move with the times! Did enjoy the great artwork at #Wimbledon chase station this morning better than plan grey walls.
Glam hair by @stephenyoungsalon SW20 💁🏼🙌🏻 Can you believe they give you a free blow dry for your birthday? How absolutely amazing is that?! I spend many a Saturday night looking like a bag of shit 😂 but with fabulous hair and the in laws on hand to babysit, last night it was slap on and hot footing it straight up to Wimbledon Village, hurrah! 👍🏻😬🍸👊🏻
So when I got home this evening after taking the 2 🙈🐵 to the park to have a picnic I get back to a home clouded in dust... I kid you not, about an inch thick of dust... EVERYWHERE 😧 But that won't get me down as I see our kitchen area double in size so I get stuck in and start cleaning! ... and think to myself well at least the dishwasher is still plumbed in! 😂😂 Be thankful for what you do have and not what you don't have. #happyfriday people! Have #fun
It's a squash and a squeeze! - apparently my husband (the man responsible for knocking the walls down in our house) thinks we should appreciate our current predicament of living in 2sq metres of space 😬... i on the other hand am feeling a little claustrophobic and definitely not feeling poetic or philosophical about the fact we have our entire kitchen (or what's left of it) in our lounge 😱 Any one else out there that can share my pain of #homerenovation ??
I fear I may have now lost sight of 'a lazy weekend morning chilling at home in my PJs'... until my kids have left home 😳... only another 16+ years to go! 😮 Football practice this morning - bearable with a #nespresso in hand and with the sun ☀️ shinning... Got home to #eggs and smoked salmon for #brunch - yum 😋
So tired my eyes hurt... or thinking maybe I have developed hayfever!? Is that even possible when it's not summer?!?!? Yesterday my eyes wouldn't stop watering 💦- weird. Or it could be the large amount of 🥂last night.🤔 There is no rest for me today though as I ship my children from sports clubs to parties all day - when did my weekends get taken over by the social lives of an 4 and 6 year old? #tiredmummy #needsleep #wheresthecoffee ☕️#quotes
Off I go again - walking the streets this time having dropped the 🚗 to the garage. School run trainers - amazing value from the trusty @marksandspencerfashionpr - love the #red detail on the back and #matchymatchy red bag from the lovely Hannah @giftpopboutique - which might I add is large enough to carry a laptop and has not 1 but 2 internal sections/bags that are detachable! ❤️ it.
A brisk autumnal walk this lunch time through the leafy suburbs of #sw19 - fitting in exercise wherever I go and great for the mind too as I had 'space' to think and recharge for the rest of the day. Walking - give it a go! 🚶🏼♀️Lots of benefits too - strengthens your ❤️ increases your vit D intake, helps you loose weight, reduces the risk of Dementia - amazing really - get out for a walk people!
This is so poignant for me at the moment. Don't sit around to wait for change - grab it by the balls and make it happen. I can be very critical of myself and quickly get down about the things I haven't achieved ... rather than be proud of what I have. (I'm a glass half empty girl unfortunately) Having said that - what I truly believe is that we always win in the end ⭐️ and we only live once so embrace life and let your decisions be influenced by this fact. If there is something you have been putting off then bring it to the top ⬆️of the list (it's also hard as a #mother to put ourselves first - but our children will benefit too as we feel empowered I promise) #bringiton #Repost @selfishmother (@get_repost) ・・・
Let the good times roll! Starting this eve with @luckythingsblog South London meet up and continuing well into the weekend! Lots of fun for ME ME ME! Because if you don't prioritise yourself, no one else will, and do you really want to spend life working and being a slave to small people?! NO is the answer! Get out there mothers. Have some good times. 🎉 This awesome artwork is by @robblackard and totally sums up my happy mood! 🙌🏻😆
#tbt to my birthday weekend on the beach (in November ❄️) I would kill for that view right now (mid #homerenovation) and the calm and tranquility having just battled through the morning traffic of #sw19. Is it #friday yet?! A full day of meetings in town to get through first. Happy Thursday every one. 🙃
Another day, another view. Camping out at my sisters house today as my office is slowly resembling a building site😬😫 - im already so OVER the #homerenovations and we haven't even knocked through yet! Anyway today thanks to #flexibleworking I get to enjoy the tranquility of this space and the view from my desk is 👌👍🏻⭐️
A great day @mumsenterprise roadshow today, made even greater by meeting these 👆🏻👆🏻👆🏻 awesome ladies for the first time ever in real life!!! This is my #DigitalMums peer group. I spent every Tuesday evening online with these ladies for 6 months during training so got to know them all pretty damn well, but nothing compares to meeting up face to face! Love it! Also, LOVE my new t shirt to support @digitalmums #cleanupthefword campaign 👍🏻👊🏻 I whatsapped my husband this picture and he wrote back 'nice t shirts, I wish you would do some fucking work' 😂😂😂 It's FLEXIBLE, knob head 😂 In other news from today, great to bump into more Digital Mum friends @rotherhithelocals and @putney.hive_ and meet lovely @flexworktribe for the first time too! Also enjoyed chatting to Sunita @luckythingsblog and looking forward to her next event later this week. AND... successfully navigated the Northern line with a 2 year old AND made it back in time for the school run AND my legs and feet held out after being completely beasted by #shinewalk on Saturday night. Feel like I'm #winning today 😊
Wake me up when I am a #unicorn 🦄 - (from E's new cute pj's) No amount of coffee ☕️ was going to help me today. Monday hit me with a 💥- is it too early in the week to start on the 🍷. Normally I don't drink at all during the week (my downfall is chocolate 🍫) but wondering whether I would feel less stressed out if I indulged in a mid-week glass once in a while... purely for relaxation purposes! What do you think?!! Drink more?!? 😂or maybe I should be doing #yoga ?!
@mumswithoutlimits I wish I could announce that I wasn't wearing any knickers - but I'm far too practical 😂 Red shoes on the other hand - I'm all over it! 👠 (note to self - must stop buying shoes) #aw17 ps. Can anyone give me a masterclass on taking pics of myself @thefashion_lift @cocomamastyle @georginapatient @myfashionable40s @_charlotteloves_ ?? - just seems so difficult! 🙃
This may well be my new haunt as we start to destroy my once loved kitchen as part of our #homerenovation - great coffee and fast wifi - all a girl needs for #flexibleworking ! Thanks @lanterncoffeehouse for keeping me fuelled with #flatwhite ☕️ - if you haven't visited before it's worth a try (there were some lovely cakes on display which I managed to resist!) #mondaymotivation
#tbt Is it Flash back Tuesday or Thursday?! 😂🤔 Either way I’m looking forward to another @mumswithoutlimits Cocktail Evening @suburban_bar on Thursday in #wimbledon. 🍹🍸 Looking forward to meeting @cocomamastyle @merton_ladies_health_fitness and catching up again with my partners in crime @thefirstsmurf and @londonparisyorkshire Should be fun. Who else is coming?! Watch out Wimbledon! 😉😜
It’s just so unlike me (usually so organised) ... but can we delay Christmas by a week maybe?! ... I’m so NOT ready - the house is a tip, we do have a tree yet, I’ve got presents but not 100% convinced I’ve got everything I need... we still only have half a floor in the kitchen and no power (still using an industrial spotlight as our means of lighting and for anyone who knows me this is my WORST nightmare #dontlikebrightlights). Starting to feel the pressure as I hear how everyone else is enjoying the festivities and are all set 😬... so anyway... my plan is just to drink 🍾🍸🍷🍷🥂🥂🍸 my way thru it!! 😄 #itstheonlyway - Repost from the genius that is Katie @hurrahforgin (genuinely laugh at your posts - and it takes a lot to make me laugh🤣)
'Just can't wait to look after the kids all day with a RAGING hangover!' SAID NO MUM EVER. Bleurgh. One bottle of prosecco 🍾 = 👍✔️ Two bottles 🍾🍾 = ❗️❌ (well on a school night anyway...) Not sure I can handle being a grown up today. But anyway, it was worth it to hang out at the beautifully redone and oh so stylish @hemingwayswimbledon in Wimbledon Village - top choice for drinks with friends, partner, colleagues, well just anyone really... Anyway, hangover cures? Hit me with them. I've been told: bananas, coke, fizzy vitamin C and more prosecco (😱) so far this morning! My personal fave is lucozade and salt and vinegar crisps. What's yours?! (Need all the help I can get today....)
I wrote another blog! (Link in the bio! 😜😜) It's about date night. It's not a serious one. It's funny. Well maybe mildly amusing.... (well I amused myself writing it anyway 😂). Have a read and let me know what you think! And you can join the date night party by sharing your date night stories and pics! Tag @mumswithoutlimits and use #moretomumlife ! (I hope this post makes sense- I've been on the prosecco 🍾😬)
You know you had a good night when you come home with French francs stuffed down your corset (and it was your husband who stuffed them there! 😂😂) Awesome time at the Moulin Rouge, we both loved it. And for one night we were a million miles away from mum and dad 😊😍 Dare to be different with date night! You won't regret it!
I've been asking local bars what their drink of choice would be for thirsty mums this summer, and here's what @suburban_bar suggested 👆👆👆 The Classic Martini 👌😁 Mmm mmmmm. And what could be better than a Martini? 2 Martinis!!!! Because happy hour is 2 for 1 on cocktails from 5pm-8pm daily! What are you waiting for?! It is #thirstythursday isn't it?! #moretomumlife
Oooh la la! 🇫🇷 Mums Without Limits is in Paris! So thrilled to be back in my old home city 😊 It's been an extravaganza of shopping, eating, drinking, wandering, soaking up the atmosphere, and catching up with old friends. Happy happy! And tonight... party time 😉 Hope you are all having an amazing weekend! #moretomumlife
Happy Father's Day to all the wonderful dads out there! We (literally) couldn't do it without you! And special hugs to all those who, for whatever reason, can't be with their dads today. (Pic of me and my sis with our lovely dad in the late eighties!) ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
