Today was my Dads fiftysomethingth birthday.
Here is a stop motion sequence of him blowing out his candles.
For his birthday I got him the complete James Bond collection. 23 films. If we commit some time each week to watching one film it will take us almost half a year to complete. Blimey.
We gave him a relaxed birthday, I think. Mum cooked a special dinner, I took him out for lunch. We didn’t want to do anything too extravagant.
My card would usually be soppy and serious, but this year, instead, I made it funny by filling it with a load of puns based on the names of James Bond films. (Easier than you’d think)
I think this year was just about making him smile, which I hope I at least accomplished in some ways.
He knows we appreciate him, he knows that I think he’s the strongest and hardest working man I know. I didn’t need to tell him that, today I just needed to hug him and tell him Happy Birthday.
Until tomorrow, Happy Birthday, Dad.
