Today is my Dad's 76th birthday and we're sending him a big hug and kiss from England all the way to Ireland X

Enjoy a yummy cake or two and have a lovely birthday dinner out with Mum. The girls have started celebrating with you and are tucking into their cupcakes lol
Here is his Grandad card made by little old me, I wanted to do something a bit different for him and sewed the word Grandad on and used lots of pretty green fabrics for the tea cup. My Dad loves his tea and why not "Tea makes everything better" and he does make the best cuppa. He is so sweet and even makes me my decaf cuppa, when we visit (I know I'm a pain hehe!).
Thank you Dad for understanding my funny little tastes.

This photo was taken a few years ago and makes me smile every time I look at it. Dad has a smile that makes everything feel better again. Love you lots Dad and even though I'm miles away my heart is with you today and always. You are in my thoughts.
Birthday wishes from all of us. XXX

Don't forget my giveaway running until next Wednesday, just leave your comment and tell me what's your favourite flavour of cupcake frosting/icing. Good luck.

I'm just getting caught up reading your blog posts and wanted to say I do so enjoy your family adventures/outings...they sound like such fun and inspire me to get out and do the same. I live in the United States, but I've always loved everything British and I admire your countryside. It seems you have less commercialization of things than we do in the that the case or just appears that way ?

You seem to really enjoy your life!! Thanks for sharing.
