Missing Dad

Happy Birthday, Dad. This is the second year I’ll be wishing he was still here to celebrate. Not a lot I can say, other than I miss him every single day.

The weekly catch up via Facetime, most of it spent with his iPad pointing up to the ceiling.

His regular visits here to Italy, watching him walk around the garden in his tartan slippers.

His advice on all kinds of stuff, debates on politics, winding me up to get on my soapbox.

His laughter at his own jokes, usually after he’d forgotten the punch line a number of times.

His never ending belief in me as a person and more so as a writer. He was my greatest fan.

The first man in my life left such an impression, he will never truly be gone.  Always in my heart. ❤💖

 

Feeling: Chuffed

Feeling Chuffed – 

Got a great review for All Will Be Well and an article accepted for Motor Home Monthly…Yay!

A beautiful story told in a sensitive voice – this novel is set in WWII and is driven by two strong female characters. It charts their individual and combined development through the challenges of war. As the novel progresses they each, in their own way, become admirable women. There is nothing crass or predictable about this one. I wholly recommend it and applaud the author for the way in which the theme is handled.
