Oh my, what a handy father I have! If something doesn't work well at home or it breaks when you least expect it, he arrives and fixes it in no time at all. It doesn't matter if it's some plumbing, electricity, carpentry or another job. He always finds the best solution! The other day he left me perplexed, since he built a custom-made drawer to get more space in our kitchen and be able to put the utensils there. He didn't take long to make it, while my mother and I watched him and we gave him all the tools that he needed. It's nice to have such a great father at home!

I'll be right with you...
