A great man once said to me, “Do as I say not as I do.”
I always promised myself I would never utter those words to my kids as it drove me nuts. Now as a father of three girls I say those eight special words on a regular basis!
My Dad is one of my, three, heroes.
He’s a man I look up to, admire and respect. He taught me all the standard things like how to ride a bike, kick a ball etc but, most importantly, he taught me how to be a man, a gentleman.
He also made me help him out in the garden which I always enjoyed and now have my own business gardening and landscaping.
A little while ago he and Mum came to stay with us and I showed him my blog, my little corner of the web. I told him that what I enjoy most is the sense of community. The sharing of ideas, projects, highs and lows. He was impressed.
I suggested he start his own page.
He used to be a Rock N Roll DJ on community radio and gained quite a following, some of who became great friends of his. So I thought having a blog would give him a similar sense of sharing something he enjoyed.
He started his gardening blog and, even though I’m bias, it’s really cool. The thing I like about it most is the flow of the writing. When I was a kid he used to write stories and I’ve always wanted him to write more now here he is.
I know we are all hobby geeks but if you’re interested in gardening and growing things take a look. Or you might just be nosey and that’s fine too. He’s only just started so help spread the word.
