As I've mentioned before, I would say I'm a Daddy's Girl, for sure. The fact that I still call him Daddy should demonstrate that! My Daddy was always very protective of me. None of my boyfriends ever measured up. My clothes were too revealing. I should aim higher. What it all came down to really, however, was that he wanted what was best for me. I think he's realised recently that what I think is best for me may not always be what he does, but that this is not always bad. He's become more accepting of my choices - and finally approved of my relationships. He gets on well with my husband, which I'm so grateful for.
My father-in-law is a botanist whose work takes him to some pretty remote places, including Antarctica - he's been there several times. He grew up on a winery and has a lot of very interesting stories. He's also an excellent artist - his botanical drawings are beautifully detailed and graceful.
I'm very lucky that I have such a good relationship with both my parents, as well as my in-laws. I know that's highly unusual!
