Allow me to introduce the other men in my life, My gorgeous Daddy and my scrumptious little nephew, Gabriel.
For some reason they call themselves the Spiky Nana Backs- now this is a long story: Gabriel likes cars. To put it mildly, more than your average child. His favourite outing ever is a trip to the carwash in my Dads van, and it is for this reason that my Dad christened him an anorak (like a train spotter, yes?). One day as they were getting ready to go to an extra special car wash, my Dad put gel on both their heads and told Gabriel he was a spiky anorak. Gabriel fell about laughing, misunderstood completely and forever after has called himself and his GanGan the Spiky Nana Backs.
I tell you this because it makes me laugh, because Finley walks around with a black and white photograph of Gabriel, who he thinks he is the coolest thing on the planet, and because Gabriel isn’t well today and because he lives so far away I can’t kiss him better- so this is a virtual hug!
And furthermore, after one senior moment after another, my clever Daddy has finally got his furniture business online. We got there in the end Dad!
