"Do anything good for your birthday?" one of your friendly B3TA moderator team asked in one of those father/son phone calls that last two minutes. "Yep," he said, "Your mum." Tell us about dads, lack of dad and being a dad.

Curriculum Vitae
I used to watch Countdown every day after school with my Dad. He thought it was good for my vocabulary and numeracy as well as keeping me quiet. I just enjoyed the games and having a special time. I wasn't best pleased when my older sister interrupted us one afternoon during countdown wailing for Dad to help her make a C.V. for a school project. My dad left the sofa and got up to help her, whilst I stayed watching Countdown and sulking a bit because I didn't even know what a "seavee" was but I was sure I wouldn't miss out. Finding some paper and a pencil the next afternoon I immediately pounced on Dad during Countdown and demanded to have one too. He told explained that it was the letters C and V which stood for Carol Vorderman and that my sister was writing a letter to become a number-lady like on the television. He encouraged me to write my letter but to put it aside for when I was a bit older as you had to be oh, at least 14 to be allowed on Countdown.......

I wish I could still find the letter as I happily wrote out my CV and had great plans to send it to the woman herself as soon as I was old enough. It would be great to read again now as an adult.
