There was a tweet going round over the weekend that asked you to name one thing your Dad taught you. I didn’t respond because I couldn’t pick just one. So instead, here’s 10 of the things that came to mind (in no particular order):

  • that the crusty bits around the edges are the tastiest
  • how to tie my shoelaces
  • to be inquisitive
  • the rules of rugby and cricket
  • how to play cards
  • fierce loyalty
  • how to make stock, gravy and soup
  • generosity
  • how to grow tomatoes
  • to know when I need to take a break
