King of Old Cool!

Growing up, my Dad really was my best friend. When my parents separated when I was a nipper, I stayed with my Dad and it seemed like the most obvious, most natural thing in the world to do. My Nana used to tell me that when I was a baby I would cry endlessly if anyone babysat me, but stop as soon as my Dad walked through the door. Through thick and thin, we stuck together and despite all the wonky pigtails he gave me, I'm still incredibly close with my Dad. 
Now, they say that straight women end up with a man like their father, and on the surface that couldn't be further from the truth for me. My Dad owns his own fabrication business and works with sheet metal every day, he's a biker and spends most of his weekends at various bike rallies and he's a man of simple tastes. Joe on the other hand, is a chef - which requires a delicate hand to ensure all the dishes look amazing. He's a big lover of music, coffee and keeping fit. I mean really, there's nothing crossing over between those two! Of course, deep down they are both kind hearted, warm, bend-over-backwards to help kind of guys, and the greatest dads. They both love me and the boys, and I'm pretty lucky that one's my dad, and the other is the father of my incredible kiddos. 



My Dad has always believed that life should be lived to the max. Unfortunately, his own father, my Grandad, died when my Dad was only 22 so I believe this is something my Dad has hung on to since then. You never know what tomorrow might bring, so make today worthy of your time. This advice is something I try to remind myself of every day, and when the boys are old enough to understand, it's something I'll pass on to them as well.
