I bought this wooden music box for husby a long time ago, a year or two after we started going out (yep, a really long time ago, heh!). It plays “Anniversary Song” (also known as the Waltz of the Danube, thanks Wikipedia!), which is the tune often (always?) used in the music jewellery boxes we all seemed to have as children – you know, the ones with the mirror inside the lid and the ballerina going round and round as the music played?
Anyway, Connor loves to play with the music box, and as I wound it up for the third or fourth time for him this morning, I thought a lot about my dad. Because, of course, today is the 6th anniversary of his death. So while we listened to the music, I told Connor about his Pa. And shed a few quiet tears.
I miss my Dad.
