Today my Grandad turns 80 years young. He is a very special man. The kindest, most generous and patient man I know.
Last weekend we celebrated his life as a Brother, Husband, Father, Grandfather, Uncle and Friend with a big surprise party.
Not only is he a special man he is an inspirational one too. He was awarded an MBE and the Territorial Decoration (TD) by HRH The Queen for his services in the British Armed Forces as a Major in the Parachute regiment.
It was my job to make him a birthday cake. I knew it had to be something special. The flavour was easy, what cake do you make a Scotsman? Whisky cake of course! And the decoration had to depict one of his 2000 parachute jumps with the Scottish Highlands covered in heather in the distance.
Happy Birthday Grandad! You are one in a million xxxxx
