Such a good dad… no doubt he’s been hard at work all day – I don’t know, only guessing, but his car draws up outside their house as the light fades from the sky. His youngest son clambers out, looking hot and tired in his cricket whites, bag over his shoulder, hair a ruffled mess. He plays for the local team, he’s quite a star, so the local paper says.
After a long day at work, my dad took me to training several times a week, and to matches. I was a swimmer and I had such a good dad too.
April 30th 2021 would’ve been Captain Tom Moore’s 101st birthday; in recognition and in remembrance of his achievement, a new challenge was announced by his family. They challenged ordinary folk to complete a hundred somethings to raise more funds for The Captain Tom Foundation – ‘whether you bake 100 cupcakes or walk 100 laps – help celebrate Captain Tom’s achievements.’ The official ‘Captain Tom 100’ has now finished, but I’ve challenged myself to write a 100 word blog each day for 100 days. I started on May 1st and when I complete my task, I’ll donate £100 to his Foundation.
