So last Sunday was Fathers Day...

My husband is a difficult man to buy for, i have the same issues when Christmas and his birthday come around too. I know these dates are coming and yet still go into mini panic mode. Socks were not needed, he hardly ever wears cufflinks, jewellery was done last year and he doesn't eat chocolate. *sigh*

When we recently had a kitchen refurb and during this decided to install a small drinks fridge, perhaps more Mr Smith's idea than mine. I thought 'extra storage for Christmas food' he thought 'extra storage for beer' I'm sure there will be battles over this at some point.
We recently had friends over and during their stay the men were constantly hunting down bottle openers, really i don't know what they were doing with them but the little so and so's kept vanishing...

Thinking on from a project last summer (where Mr Smith built a 'reclaimed wood beer bottle opener with cap catcher - this still remains an unfinished project) i searched online to find something that could be wall mounted (therefore unloose able!) and would look fab in our kitchen. I found THIS, it looked ace, it was wood mounted and had a funky bottle opener - WIN! However it was £22, then with £2.75 postage it came to just shy of £25?! Yikes!
I little hunting online later... I came across these - CLICK CLICK. A set of not one but TWO rustic cast iron bottle openers (with attachments) for a mere £6.99 delivered - Yippee!

A little scrap wood from the storage bin, a bit of sanding and staining plus a few drilled holes for wall mounting and there was this... A fab wood mounted bottle opener which not only opens Mr Smiths bevvys but also looks pretty funky on our kitchen wall (besides the fridge of course)

As there were two brackets in the pack we had a spare which Mr Smith plans on using for his 'outdoor' bottle opener (and catcher) which have been gathering dust in our shed for the last 12 months. Stay tuned for that one!

Along with this the girls both made Daddy a card - got to a love a home made card covered in that much PVA glue and glitter that it can't stand alone. Fathers Day gifts complete. A awesome wall mounted beer opener and a pack of four of his favourite weekend tipple.

Lucky man :)
