It's Fathers Day today in Ireland and our daughter made him a card.
We had never seen this photograph before tho' remember the occasion well.
This was taken on her wedding day almost two years ago.
My friend had made a bobbin lace horseshoe for her for good luck, but her luck was running out when she suddenly discovered that she no longer had it. She was standing on the Japanese bridge at the hotel having photographs taken when the horseshoe parted company from it's ribbon and slipped unnoticed between the wooden slats of the bridge and into the large lily pod beneath.
Someone spotted it and ran for something to fish it out with...the hotel provided a snooker cue but before the grooms brother had his chance the fathers took over!
They joined forces and while her dad just managed to reach it, his dad hung on to him for dear life.
What a fab' photo captured just at the moment of possession.
She wrote on the card
'To dad, Cos with you by my side my luck will never run out...'
Lets hope her luck lasts for a long, long time.
Maybe now is the time to tell you that we are hoping they will make us grandparents in October, fingers are tightly crossed. First grandchild for both sets of parents.
I have seen the first scan......looks a bit like a baby gecko to me!!!
But then baby geckos are gorgeous!
