Yesterday I had an unexpected package from Amazon waiting for me at the door.
Addressed to me so opened it. A cool but unordered watch was inside! WTF ! a few hours later my daughter who is 14, told me that it was my belated Fathers Day gift. She had inspected my watch box and came to the conclusion that I needed some "bling" as she puts it. So a search for blingy watches on the Zon and she decided on this. Paid for out of her own hard earned babysitting money .
I am chuffed, (English expression, means Very Happy) I know exactly what it is and I will take great pleasure in wearing it especially at family dinners.
Check out the embossing and the electric blue hands.
Cheers all
Derek

The strap doesn't do the piece justice so I thought I might pick up a blue suede for it. What do you all think?
Cheers

Sweet I think a blue strap would finish it off perfect.

Funk, yes I did. But how quickly they change, from being the little girl that needs you for everything to the young lady that needs you for nothing!
She can't wait to get her drivers permit in about a years time, and has also stated that my Ducati is soon to be HERS!
Truth is I never had any kids of my own, the three (all girls)I have are all step kids , I think I did a pretty good job with them. One is the Astrophysics Professor, one is an Insurance Agent and the youngest is the Tom Boy, taekwondo , wrestling and Jiu Jitsu superstar!
They are all considerate, and focused, which I guess is just how it should be. Thank you all for your nice comments about my little girl. Wish I could get her to wear a watch but hey maybe one day!
Cheers and happy Monday all.

I, too, have only step-children. One 18 whom I just took to do her drivers test this morning in fact! Then an 8-year-old boy and a 10-year-old girl. The oldest is a challenge, and the younger ones quite fun!
It is a hard position to be in, sometimes, and is worth the efforts just the same! Kudos to you!

Kudos to you Funk, yep, they can sometimes be a challenge for sure. My wife has a system, it goes like this : at 18 you have to remove yourself from "my house", at that time you will "a" be working full time, or "b" you will be in full time education and house sharing. So far it seems to have worked. We buy a car for each child on their 18th, fill it with gas and wave bye bye! Lol

That is super nice. You will probably own that watch forever and it will always have great meaning to you personally. Very very nice.
