It's been fascinating, this week, following people's responses to some of these Father's Day Festival posts and tweets. Trish @mumsgoneto wrote a most moving tribute to her own father yesterday, including a slide-show of some of his paintings. If you haven't seen it, do take a look. He certainly seems to have been a top dad in more ways than one, and you can read about more Top Dads on the Prostate Action website in their celebrity count down to Father's Day. They're asking people to post stories about their dad on their TOP DAD Facebook app. Stories can be funny, poignant or about an important lesson their father taught them. And the writers of the top four stories, as voted for by the public, get to win an iPad2.
Elsewhere - but still on the subject of top dads - Toblerone have launched a special 400g limited edition 'Dad of the Year' Toblerone Swiss milk chocolate. And if you want to crown your Dad with the prestigious title of ‘DAD OF THE YEAR’ read on.
Special bars like these are in the shops right now and the competition - in partnership with Switzerland Tourism - could see your Dad whisked off on a trip for two to the 4* Hotel Schweizerhof in the idyllic Alpine town of Lenzerheide wheou re he can enjoy the fresh mountain air, breathtaking scenery and luxury spa treatment. Entering is really easy. All you have to do is log on to the My Toblerone website and tell them why you think your dad should win. It's that simple!
But there's more, because the organisers have generously agreed to give away three of these special bars to lucky Bringing up Charlie readers. As before, all you have to do is comment, tweet or otherwise interact in some way and if Charlie picks you, you're a winner! Talking of which, it's congratulations to Trish @mumsgoneto and Emma @EmApocolyptic who won Monday's Hotel Chocolat goodies. More great #FathersDay giveaways tomorrow. See you then!
