Tomorrow my dad turns 75. On Saturday we'll have a family BBQ (his choice of meal) to celebrate. Mum will make his favourite dessert which right now is a sweet cream cheese filling rolled around a puff pastry case and sprinkled with icing sugar. They are pretty yummy.

Dad still has amazing strength and stamina, the product of his long and lustrous career as a tradie (carpenter, joiner, cabinet maker and shop fitter). He succumbs to mum's and my nagging about eating a healthier diet but deep down he just wants to have white bread, few vegies and some sort of cake every day LOL. He's had 2 angioplasties, the last one requiring 3 stents to be inserted and he takes medication for cholesterol. He's had 2 colonoscopies to remove polyps. I live in dread of the "C" word rearing its ugly head one day.

All that said and done he's the most down to earth call-a-spade-a-spade person I know and he'll tell you what he thinks, no holds barred LOL.

So happy birthday dad and may you live a long and (relatively) healthy life so we can enjoy having you around.

XX Your daughter M
