I often forget the stories my Parents have told me about their lives, it’s not that I don’t listen or don’t want to know – I just have a really bad memory. Although it doesn’t bare thinking of there will be a day when they cannot tell me – my Gran is suffering from Alzheimer’s sadly some of her stories are now lost, I wish I had, had something like this I could have asked to jot some little bits in nothing long maybe not fill it all but just some little pieces of her I could hold onto. So with Father’s Day just around the corner what could be a better time to get your Dad one of the gorgeous ‘Dear Dad’ journals from you to me - with the choice to either design your own cover with photos of him or maybe both of you and write in the questions you would love to know the answers to (£19.99) or grab a pre-designed book – there really is something for everyone no matter how much or little time you have.
Containing around 60 questions Dear Dad ask’s things such as:What are your earliest memories?What were you best at when you were at school?Describe a special day you had with my mother..How did you feel when you found out you were going to be a father?What piece of advice would you like to offer me?and of course offers an area where they record there name, date of birth, eye colour, height, blood group, and date of completion.The start and end of the book is completed by you. I’m still thinking what I would like right to my Dad for mine but the front page looks like this:
Every other page has mainly one question on there are a few with more, with the opposite page having a small picture in the bottom corner which often has something to do with the question being asked. Such is this lovely little bunny which is situated opposite the page asking about childhood pets.
I’m really looking forward to giving my Dad this one – and I’ve already told my Mum she will be getting one at Christmas for her to fill in. I think it is one of the best idea’s I have come across.
To grab your Dad one for this Father’s day head to the website now where you can pick up these pre-designed ones for an amazing £12.25
I’d love to know what you think of this idea. Do you love it as much as me?
