Had the pleasure and privilege of spending the evening with the Brownies, invited as part of their Father Days fun celebrations. We played rounders using the grave stones as bases, dads and granddads against the girls. We had hot dogs and toasted marshmallows. The joys of parenthood, although some say it gets harder as they get older, or maybe its gets harder as we get older and spend less time listening to our children. The driving force behind me giving up the day job was to spend more time with the children rather than delegating that responsibility to mum, school, clubs and classes. If my little boy turns out to be a wayward teenager, it’s too late then to try a turn it around, we can never spend too much time with them at this age; I was brought up in West Africa where they say it takes a village to bring up a child.
