Blogmas day 8: My Dad's Christmas Present

I have mentioned my Dad before briefly, but for those of you who don't know, he suffers with OCD and has for about 20 years. He is very good at managing it usually, but this year one of his brothers (who is his usual form of support) has become very ill. This has meant he has had no one who really understands. He won't turn to me, because he feels guilty for burdening his daughter, and selfish as it may be, I don't force him to tell me anything if it will make him feel worse.
SO, this year I want to make his Christmas extra special and think I may succeed! He is a huge Wolverhampton Wanderers (Wolves) fan and hasn't missed a league game in 10 years. He's been a season ticket holder, taken me to games.. even got my Nan to climb 100's of steps, bless her! Going to see them play, despite how rubbish they are, is something that really keeps him going.
Because of this, I recently wrote to Wolves, explaining the situation and to see if they could help me in anyway possible to make his year. They have been so good and actually sent me a personally signed Wolves Pennant!!

I know he's going to love it and actually can't wait to see his face!
Are you surprising anyone this Christmas?

Wow what an amazing thing to do! Your dad is gonna be so chuffed and surprised! You gotta tell me all about it when you give it to him. xxx

(And I'm so sorry, but I just have to be a bit 'boo, hiss Wolves!' Massive Millwall fan here haha!) <3
