    I got a tshirt that says expert gamer, and my 10 week old baby has one that says "gamer in training". That and a load of chocolate and snacks. I'm happy with my first father's day as the father!

    Nice to be appreciated :(

    Got some chocolate an £20 Amazon gift card and a sausage sandwich in bed.

    That'll do nicely.

    Got about 6 cards this morning. Only have two kids, though.

    Mrs Cheesyboy bought me one of those Chewbacca masks on behalf of the kids (they're 6 and 2). It's very much more a gift for them than for me :D

    Don't you still live with your mum at 40? Can't be that bad.

    Yes and looking back at the post I spelled living as leaving.
    Partly I suppose why I'm still here, we never get in each others way, don't eat together or anything like that.

    Got the privilege of driving my wife to see her Dad, otherwise it was just another normal day from my 6 and 3 yr olds.

    Just means Mothers day will be all the more easier for me :D

    This time of year is utterly grim for me, other halfs dad died about 6 years ago and mine died when I was 6 (i'm 27 now).

    A trip to the monastery for her yesterday and one to the graveyard for me today....don't take what you have for granted people.

    Spending another happy day with my wife, my one year old daughter and the bump; then round to the in-laws for dinner. My step-son was hiding in his room on his PS3 somewhere, allegedly... Can't say for sure as I never saw him. :p

    I spent the morning out hooning around the B roads in the car. When I got home my one year old enjoyed opening my cards, DA orbital polisher (car), polishing compound, glaze, pads and accessories, while I told the wife she'd spent far too much. Seeing my daughter suddenly decide to walk around for the day after her refusing to stop crawling thus far was the best present ever though. :D

    I went to a ceramic craft place where my 8 month old son put his hand prints on a mug. The out to enjoy the weather and lunch at the UK's first Smashburger.

    Early present last month, a ps4 with doom and uncharted 4.

    Then a personalised book"written by" my 4 month old son. And a full English. Finished with home made chocolate cake.

    I received a card from my son.

    Now, I'm not a conspiracy theorist, but there was something suspicious about the handwriting in it. Firstly, if I look at the cursive script the way the letters 's', 'r' and 'g' are all written is highly reminiscent of that of my wife. Second, given that he has no income of his own, I'm wondering how (and indeed when, given that he can't walk) he purchased this card, it had a shiny front so I suspect it wasn't the cheapest available. Finally, his grasp of language is terrible at best, non-existent at worst, most of the time I can only get an unintelligible burble out of the clingy dependent, and yet I'm to believe he bought me this card?
