Father’s Day is quickly creeping up on us. On Sunday 18th June, we will be celebrating Dads everywhere and all that they do for their families. I absolutely love Father’s Day, and I always try and make it a little bit special for Mike, with the girls getting involved in giving him their very own special gift (with Mummy’s help of course!)
