To My Dad for Father's Day

This post is late because, ironically, I was away from my laptop visiting my Mum and Dad on Father's Day!

My Dad is not the tallest of men, but to me he's a giant!  A printer by trade, he taught me everything I know about colours and art - it's his passion too.  My Father's Day present to him was a book of J M Turner's work.  It doesn't matter what I do, he's proud of me.

I love my Mum unconditionally, but she and everyone else knows I'm a Daddy's girl through and through, and I don't care who knows it.

He hates having his picture taken, and he can be a contrary bugger, so the pictures I have of him are few and far between - normally he's behind the camera or lurking somewhere where he can't be photographed - but this is a picture of me with Mum and Dad at my wedding in 1994, and it's a picture I love very much because it is such a wonderful rarity!
