Today Sunday 19th June 2022 here in the UK and many other countries we celebrate Father’s Day. It is usually held on the third Sunday of June and is a day to honour fathers and father figures, such as grandfathers and fathers-in-law. Many people make a special effort to visit their fathers or to send them a card or gifts. More information can be read here

If you live in America it was back on June 19, 1910 that Father’s Day was founded, in Spokane, Washington at the YMCA by Sonora Smart Dodd to honour her father, Civil War veteran William Jackson Smart, for all his efforts as a single parent raising his six children. According to Hallmark Fathers Day is the fourth largest card sending occasion. More information can be read here


In our house cards and gifts are given, some arrived early by post yesterday ready for Eddie to open … and we have been fortunate to see family members both yesterday and today, a lovely family time.

Wherever you may live we wish all who will be celebrating this day a happy day.

If you can smell a wonderful aroma wafting from your computer screen it will be the Roast Chicken cooking, everyone’s favourite meal 😋
