Sunday 16th June is the Day of the Dad, when fathers across the land emerge from whatever wooden building they spend the rest of the year hiding in, to be showered with gifts from their offspring. We’ve all seen that look on pater’s face when he unwraps the hoe you bought him from the garden centre – a look that quite clearly expresses “It’s the wrong kind of hoe.” It would be far better to give the old grouch something that he might not have thought of himself, but when he reads it, will realise he has been waiting for…

You were born in Yorkshire. You’ve had lots of Yorkshire characters, but was your family steeped in Yorkshire from way back? My mother and father weren’t Yorkshire people.
