Meet the Man Behind Father's Day


Meet this guy. The father. The bees knees. Super Dad. The multi-skilled, much loved man around our wonky house.
He baths newborns with such ease.
Uses advanced principles of engineering to string up pinatas in all weather conditions and challenging locations.
Attacks and disposes of ugly, apricot, knee high sinks we have put up with for two years in a single bound ...
Effortlessly juggles two babies sitting ...
...and standing (precarious though it may seem to the untrained eye)
Completes renovations of epic proportions whilst managing the apprentice...Manages a sleep in despite adversity. Which is good as he needs the energy to...
...play fairies with the theatrical charm of Sir Lawrence Olivier
...accept handmade father's day gifts in the morning...
...and construct sandcastles of architectural merit in the afternoon...
whilst on a spectacular Tassie country drive...he's a keeper xxxx

What a spunk and all round good guy! Is he blushing? I bet he is.

I did notice he's looking particularily tired in a few of those photos!

I was sold by his indefatigueable talents, right at the point where The Man Behind Father's Day could sleep in the face of adversity...
