My parents came back from holiday and my dad came to stay before he had to fly out again due to work. It was a great 24 hours. My dad is truly great at advice, general chats, hugs, lunchtime drinks, tea drinking and everything else in between.
While he was here we went for a little bite to eat, a couple of drinks and a long chat (it might have been a shorter visit to the pub if it hadn't had started raining, but I doubt it!). It was a lovely afternoon spent; one that winter weekends should be.
It really was the shortest of visits but he's promised to come up again in the New Year so I'm going to hold him to it!
