Father’s Day Plans


I have so much to do today and now my devices are not co-operating. While I wait for HP to fix my scanner, I guess I have time to waste….

I remembered just now it is Father’s Day this weekend. Hubby is working his long days starting Friday, so we may not see him until Monday, or as a vague shape during the night, or a sleepy morning kiss.

Hence the camping trip we went on, that was all for Papa, and Honeybear and I shopped for some nice little bits of gear for Hubby to add to his fishing things…so no big Father’s Day gift this Sunday.

However, I do believe things must be celebrated on the day. So Honeybear and I will have to make some efforts. I think we might try the crafty route.

I saw this really doable looking tutorial for footprints and hand prints. I always wanted to do this, but I have not had much success previously with sticking feet into dough. I do not like the lumpy look. This looks neat enough that I can see myself hanging it up (that is if we get it right)

We will also make a special dinner for Papa (which he will have to re-heat)

And I also saw this really cool idea for a DVD pack. Also very doable and hubby loves movies, but Honeybear is not yet civilized enough to take to a cinema, and we do not always want to watch kiddy movies.

We might make a card, but I am not big on cards. What do you do with after the event? Stick it in a box, into the bin? I am sure the school will dish out cards and little pressies on Friday so that may take care of the card thing.

Last year Honeybear and I made cookies that spelt Papa. Honeybear did eat most of them, but we tried.

 What are your Father’s Day plans?

  1. Liam’s school gets the kids to make pressies for Mother & Fathers day. DH and I don’t celebrate anything. We don’t buy each other presents, which is a bit sad really. I’m not too imaginative and end up buying smelly stuff or socks or something practable (why is that not right)
    Good luck with your crafts.

    • I like to celebrate stuff and at any opportunity I have something planned…Valentines, birthdays, special days. I think I exhaust Hubby a little (but that is why he married me ?). Everyone needs socks so it is not so bad, as much as we diss the gift. Practable = Practical?

  2. Father’s Day is only next weekend, the 15th of June!

    I agree RE celebrating events on the day!
    Love the hand and footprint idea, wow!

    • HAHAHAHA….I am really mixed up and I am not even pregnant! Thank you for setting me straight, at least now my gifts will be ready without a rush.

  3. Just wanted to say on the 15th. The kids all make something at school and we do smallish gifts – like a book etc. And breakfast in bed, always. And he gets to choose Sunday lunch which I will make unless he wants to braai.

I want to read your thoughts....
