Slim pickings on a Tuesday morning, we went with Postman Pat the Movie.
Now there’s 87 minutes of my life I won’t get back.
For the sake of an entertaining #FYBF post, I thought of taking some photos throughout the torturous viewing but who needs spoiler alerts, right?
Besides, I was too busy dealing with the twinions’ demands to run to the back of the huge screen and “Switch it ooooffff !!!”
Nothing like a spectacular preview of the new Planes movie prior to mislead the boys into delirious excitement only to have it all crashing.
“What happened to Dusty? Wait. What? I got Postman Pat instead?”
Truth be told, for all the cheesy kids shows out there, I love me a bit of Postman Pat and his black and white cat.
My dad was a postie, an awesome one at that.
Looking absolutely dapper in his uniform, coming home after a day of zipping around town delivering mail on his little ringky dink 250CC motorbike, there were plenty of stories of lovely elderly women who would lovingly leave him a cookie and milk at their mailboxes. Then there were the nasty accidents that saw him come out of hospital with bandaged knees and elbows.
Not a postie but another amazing dad is Mr Surfer.
I could not have pulled off any of those half marathons or City2Surf runs without his steadfast and unwavering support.
While I put in endless hours of training, he’s dedicated just as much time ensuring our ship sails smoothly.
Sneaking out of the house to pull off the nighttime photo shoots, there was my fleet’s 1st (and only) mate taking over on dinner, bath time and bed duties.
You know what, you’re all right, Mr Surfer.
I know you said that all you wanted this Father’s Day is “A big sloppy kiss and a slap across the chops” but I think I can do better than that.
After all, you do. All the time.
Happy Father’s Day to all our dads, granddads, stepdads and role model dads. We will remember fondly and dearly miss those who are no longer with us.
Got anything special planned this Father’s Day?
