Unfortunately both myself and my husband Steve are working on Father's Day this year. Readers of our blog will know that we are always on the go and it is rare that we have a free morning. Thank goodness for bank holiday Monday! Last week we decided to make the most of our bank holiday and bring Father's Day forward by treating dad to a lie in and making him breakfast which is something we never do - Steve is the cook in our house and usually in charge of breakfast.
I got out of bed with the kids and we set our table. We had a special surprise up our sleeve which we had been working on during the week whilst he was at work - we had ordered some personalised placemats and coasters from truprint featuring our favourite photographs of special memories we had shared with dad.
My little helpers setting the table
We made daddy's favourite - bacon sandwiches
Steve was over the moon with the effort we had gone to - I always think personalised and thoughtful gifts are the best. A lie in and having breakfast made for you goes a long way when you're a parent.
During our breakfast the children took it in turns to show their dad their placemat and coaster and why they picked that photograph to remember.
We chose a photograph of Steve and the kids skimming stones on holiday for his placemat
Our father's day breakfast was a huge success and the best thing is - we now get to use the placemats and coasters every day as a reminder of all the fun family times we've had and fun times there are to have in the future.
