I cannot believe my dad once wore short denim shorts, an open shirt and Birkenstocks! But this was 1978, two years before my parents got married. Growing up I assumed all dads were capable of riding motorcycles, doing tricks on a water-ski, flying a plane, running a business and finding time to watch ballet performances or help with physics homework. But they're not; my dad was exceptional, and he still is. My siblings and I know we'll always have fun when we hang out with dad; he's young at heart and has such an inspiring 'just get on with it' attitude. Living in London I don't get to see him as much as I'd like but he's always there for me - just a phone call away if I ever need help or advice. He's the best father I could ask for, and he still rides a motorbike like he's Steve McQueen!
