UNdane Postcardiology (Father's Day Edition)

We have a tendency to only notice the bad things we inherited from our parents, like a prominent nose or hot temper. But what about the good stuff?

Here is a list of all the good things I inherited from my Dad:-

- Interest in music
- Interest in literature/inability to go into a bookshop without spending thousands of pounds
- Photographic ability
- Interest in collecting things.

When I was 7 and a Brownie, I decided to earn my Brownie Guide collectors badge. I didn't collect anything and so was at a bit of a loss. But my Dad had a huge collection of retro badges. So he helped me stick them to cork boards so I could display 'my' collection and earn my badge. I wish I knew where they had gone - that was an immense collection of badges from the 60's, 70's and 80's.

Nowadays we both collect picture postcards. My habit of stocking up on free postcards in the cinema foyer comes directly from him.

Here are some postcards in my collection that I nabbed from my Dad:-
