Dear Dad

Woman's Weekly (UK) - - Hello! - Esme Clemo, Home & Craft Ed­i­tor

Dads, you can’t live with them and you can’t live with­out them, as our writer Jo Carnegie rem­i­nisces, delv­ing into her teenage di­aries on page 10. My dad has al­ways been a superhero in my eyes. When things go wrong, he picks me up, dusts me off and sends me on my merry way into the world. He’s been a glo­ri­fied taxi ser­vice, nor­mally hand­ing me a ten­ner at the end of the ride and giv­ing me a hug good­bye. He’s been my res­cue ser­vice, driv­ing two hours to free me from my liv­ing room where I’d be­come trapped by a bro­ken door han­dle. More than that, though, he’s en­cour­aged me to en­joy life, work hard, feel con­fi­dent with a power tool, do-it-your­self when­ever pos­si­ble and to rel­ish a chal­lenge. I’m off to get his Father’s Day card now – don’t for­get it’s on Sun­day 17 June.
