First Father's Day!

It's been an exciting day around these parts, it being Matt's first Father's Day as a Daddy!

He took the day off from building work and planned a packed itinerary for us all, including visiting his dad, walking the dogs, visiting a local farm for a chat with the animals and a yummy lunch, a visit to a local antiques centre and Forrest's first swim. And believe it or not (I am frankly amazed, myself) we did indeed pack all of this in to today!

Lindt kindly sent a heap of chocolate to help him celebrate his first Father's Day and I got him a personalised card from Rosie Robins at Not On The High Street - I love it and think it will make a lovely keepsake

I was a bit fraught leading up to today - trying to pack so much into a day is something I would NEVER do out of choice but I wanted Matt to get as much as possible out of his day with Forrest. And it was fine. I really ought to relinquish control more often!

My own dad was playing golf all day, as he did last year! But I hope you all enjoyed spoiling the Dads in your life today


  1. aw that was so kind of Lindt! Hope Matt enjoyed his first fathers day

  2. Aww, what a lovely way to celebrate his first father's day. It can be hard to relinquish control when you're normally so organised but it's a lovely feeling if you relax into it I think x

  3. I definitely couldn't be described as a broody person, but that black and white photo, my god... x

  4. This sounds like the perfect way to celebrate Father's Day - such gorgeous photos of Forrest and Matt too. And I could definitely do some damage to that pile of chocolate - I'm not sure it would have all made itself to its intended recipient if it was me! xo
