Nathan’s Mumma Says….
Fathers Day is a special time of year for us. Nathan’s Dadda works so hard so that I can stay at home with Nathan that we really like to spoil him. We equally like to spoil Nathan’s Grandpa and Grumpy, although the latter is rather difficult to buy for and doesn’t seem to appreciate the handmade things Nathan and I enjoy making. This year, as with previous years, we are trying to get all these men together to celebrate but it’s often quite tricky. Fortunately in this instance, as Nathan’s Dadda and I are both ‘only children’ we don’t have siblings to add into the mix.
So what do we have planned? Without giving the game away too much, we plan to bake something for his Grandpa as he is a big fan of our baking. It will either be a batch of Mary Berry flapjacks or a Nigella Lawson Lemon Drizzle cake. His Grumpy will be given something Nathan has made, we at least have fun making it. Possibly a piece of wall art. Nathan’s Daddy will be getting a special photo frame and an un-yet decided upon gift.
There are some fab places to buy fathers days gifts and cards if you aren’t of the crafting type, or you simply don’t have time. Lots of high street stores sell Fathers day presents and cards such as:
We will also be making a card for each of our Daddies out of our vast craft collection. I love putting a selection of crafty bits in front of Nathan and watch what he does with them.We also love a good Pinterest idea…Nathan isn’t a big fan of doing hand and foot prints so we avoid those but they look amazing!
- Hand and foot print cards
- Mosaic cards (changed to be for Fathers day)
- Painted name card

If you fancy a day out on Fathers Day why not visit somewhere like Wollaton Hall, Trentham Gardens, Chatsworth House (or another stately home), have a mini break somewhere like London, York or Harrogate, visit Kedleston Hall (or another National Trust property, they often have special events on) or simply go swimming, for a walk or a bike ride.
Whatever you do to celebrate the special Daddies in your life we wish you a very happy fathers day 2015!
