I Don’t Need A Nap

Dear Mum,
Because Josh was late to bed (for no particular reason) last night, he didn’t get his story. So this morning he brought about ten books into our bed and I read them all to him. They weren’t particularly short stories either. This meant that he and I weren’t out of bed until nine o’clock.
We had breakfast then hung some washing out, which seems to take considerably longer when you’re assisted by a four year old!
For lunch Josh wanted beans and toast, I had a cheese and baked beans toasted sandwich, which I rather enjoyed. By the time we finished the boy was getting a bit fractious, so I insisted he have a nap.
That was at one-ish. He got up again at about four. Obviously he “wasn’t tired”, from the amount of times he cried this phrase to me before he went to sleep.
When he woke up we got the washing in, then played in the garden (which is when I took the photo) until it was time to make tea. I put on some pasta and reheated the bolognese sauce Deanne had made at the weekend. It was very good, tasted really bolognese-y, if you know what I mean!
This evening I finished putting together my new website and spec’ing up some business cards for my IT Support thing, Dee has been working on the laptop, but that’s fine ’cause I needed to do some Photoshopping on the desktop. I’m quite impressed that I still have the talent to put a whole website, including logos and text, together in about two or three hours!
Josh is at daycare tomorrow so I can get on with a few things that I’ve failed to do while I’ve had him at home this week.



Dear Mum,
Deanne went out quite early as she was meeting Michelle in the city to do a tour of chocolatiers. Josh and I stayed at home and did some stamping, dinosaur stamps on blank paper. We also did some writing. I’m going to spend some time each day with Josh over the next couple of weeks practising writing letters and words.
We also played in the garden, football, cricket and frisbee, dressed quite appropriately for the weather in t-shirts and jeans…and it’s close to the middle of winter! The weather was great.
After Dee had arrived home, bringing us some chocolatey gifts, we did a few bits of housework and read some stories to Joshy.
Slice, roast veg, cauliflower cheese and gravy for tea. Very nice (thank you Deanne)! Got Josh to bed, then did some computer stuff.
Tomorrow we might be going to Scitech or the Zoo, depending on the weather.
