Above you can see one of the two home made cards I received from Charlotte this morning, Jamie handed over two more. Most kind although, in Charlotte's case, I fear her admiration for me will inevitably decrease as she becomes less short.
Jamie designed one of his cards at his Beavers' "Lads and Dads Night" on Wednesday.
As part of the packed programme, we also had a mixed teams tug of war battle.
Followed by the dads being forced to run the wet sponge gauntlet.
Then, back in the hut, we took part in a quiz with our respective sprogs.
I did swimmingly well in answering my "Know Your Lad?" posers, only getting Jamie's favourite colour wrong. (It had been blue until Wednesday morning, on Wednesday afternoon it became green. He didn't say).
Then it was his turn to answer questions about me in "Know Your Dad?"
Here's how it went:
Q1 What is his full name?
A. Barry Richard White (Correct)
Q2 What date is his birthday?
A. ??? (Gutted)
Q3 What colour are his eyes?
A. Blue (I wish)
Q4 What's his job?
A. Paper man (Because he said I shuffled paper a lot. In protest, I chose not to give him a point)
Q5 Who are his favourite football team?
A. Ireland (Northern - he could have that one)
Q6 Where was he born?
A. Ireland (As above)
Q7 What size shoes does he take?
A. Size 4 (Maybe he's seen me in the shower. No point)
Q8 What is his favourite food?
A. Meat (That's my boy)
Q9 Does he like dogs or cats?
A. Cats (On a roll)
Q10 What sport does he play?
A. Rugby (Forced to retired because of injury in 1996, but close enough)
Q11 What is his best friend's name?
A. John (Wee)
Q12 Is he romantic?
A. Sort of (For explanation see answers 5 and 6)
Eight points then. Expect to see us on Family Fortunes sometime soon.
Meanwhile, the cafe's now open. It's time for my special Fathers' Day lunch.
