Good start

My dad called me yesterday morning to tell me he'd been reading the articles I gave him on the weekend (poor man - I dumped three of my longwinded reports for a business mag with him over the weekend to trawl through). He said he just wanted to let me know that he thinks I'm a very good writer and that he's proud of me.

How sweet is that? It started my day off really well. Never underestimate the power of a nice compliment.

That is so awesome! I'm such a daddy's girl :) But having him in another city is not always easy, but we're still close!! It's lovely having a great relationship with your dad! x

I'm probably the only person on here who doesn't have a great relationship with my dad. I still like getting compliments from him though...in fact, I love getting compliments from anyone :)
