Top 5 Reasons to Celebrate Dads

1. They bring a sense of humour to things.
2. Relationship advice – most of ’em have ‘seen it all before’.
3. Life Guidance, they help make the journey a little smoother.
4. Practical – good at ‘doing things’, digging, bbqs, the garden, DIY, car stuff etc.
5. Good at building knowledge of music outside our era (and films and stuff).

Well done Dads everywhere – you are well good.
