For me, nowadays, it's not day trips to London or theme parks but driving lessons! Yes, long-term viewers will sigh out loud when they realise my two little cherubs, who were only months old when I first entered the portals of Q Towers, are now driving their 'Old Man' around.
To be honest, I did get a little nostalgic as we drove passed their old Infant School. It really did seem, to me, only a couple of years ago that I used to stand in the playground waiting to be greeted by their energetic, enthusiastic cries of "Dadddyyyyy!"
Now, whilst I'm blessed to enjoy a great relationship with my two, I was not blind to the fact that their joy at seeing me was heightened by some 'cupboard love'!
You see, every Tuesday it was my turn to pick them up whilst Mum was at work – I decided that it would be fun if we stopped off at a lovely old style local store (sadly, long since closed) and let them choose some sweets etc.
This became known in our family as 'The Tuesday Chomp' and, not surprisingly, they commented on that rather than their old school The pic at the top is their first day at that school – Aaaahhhh!
I've had a chance to play with Saturday's beautiful 5" Android Smartphone TSV from Prestigio. It's also caught the eye of my son Jack, who actually thought it was better than his existing big brand Android phone and that was before he found out it was dual SIM, SIM free, and came with five different coloured covers!
It already has the black cover fitted, but in seconds you can swap it over to any of the colours shown here! Join me at midnight Friday into Saturday to find out more about this exciting smart phone offer – and there may be some cheeky Easy Pays too
I also let out a Richard Jackson 'Root Roar', when I found out that I'll be launching his amazing Flower Power TSV on Saturday into Sunday. This is quite simply the best plant food I have used and I know many of you would agree!
So please join RJ and I at midnight Saturday!
P.S. If you don't know what a RJ 'Root Roar' is – you must tune in to find out I know Richard and I would love it, if you could tweet any photos you may have of your 'Flower Power' success to me @dalefranklintv on Saturday night!
Just for Fun
Simply add what you think I might be saying into the comments section below – try and keep it clean! Haha!
Until next time! I hope you can stay safe, healthy and warm.
