Today's photo wasn't taken today - it was taken several years ago but I wanted to post it today.

It's a photo of my Dad up a ladder in the garden of my childhood home, cutting the tops off the trees - Leilandi? He always scared the life out of us with his chainsaw at the top of that ladder as he was accident prone (I've inherited his clumsiness!) and in the end he used to sneak out and try to do it when we weren't looking.

My Dad died two years ago today and it makes me smile to think of him up that ladder, listening to Five Live, trying to finish before he was caught!

Miss you Dad xx
