Happy Birthday Daddy!

Today my dad turns 42.

I think it goes without saying that I love my dad - for so many reasons.
He’s the kind of guy that will always do the right thing no matter how inconvenient it may be.
He’s a perfectionist: which means that if anything needs fixing you go to him. He’ll do some research about what the best tool for the job is - he won’t get the job done the fastest but definitely the neatest and most reliable.
He is one of the most patient people I know as well as the person that knows the most about anything and everything. We always joke that he’s an encyclopaedia of useless information :)
He works hard to give his family the best life they can have.
He also has a very dark sense of humour (we grew up with nursery rhymes from Roald Dahl), is very intellectual and loves irritating his kids :)

He shares a birthday with my mom’s younger sister who turns 40 today and is celebrating in Mauritius!
And our friend Craig that turns 23 today.

Happy birthday to anyone else whose birthday is also today!

P.S. Today is also 6 months till our wedding!!
