One of my favourite memories from childhood was my dad getting back from work. We would all be about our various activities, my two siblings and I, mostly bickering with each other, only to be interrupted by my mum’s voice shouting “Your dad is home!” Oya come and see race!

This happened continually as he got back from work every day, regardless of how tired he felt, until we went off to boarding school, and even after that he found other amazing ways t...
