‘Keep being you Simon because that is enough. Dad, I miss you and love you but, I have to confess while you’re there, I broke the fence while playing football. You can’t tell me off because you’ve been farting and wafting it on national TV. Seriously though Dad, you’re smashing it. Our kind, super cool dad, you’re our hero.’
