Dear Mum,
This morning we got ready early, for a Sunday, and headed to Hoyt’s which is one of the cinema chains over here. Deanne had four tickets to see Tinkerbell and the Pirates, or some such, so we asked Emma if Penny would like to come with us. She said that Lillian (with two Ls) would like to see it too, so the three of them would come.
Penny and Josh ran to get seats first, followed by Dee, me, Lillian then Emma. The film was okay, if you like fairys, but the kids seemed to enjoy it. Probably the best bit was when the pirates appeared and Penny turned to Josh and said “if you get scared of the pirates you can hold my hand.” Aw!
When we got home afterwards Bob came over to get his mower, which he forgot to take last time he came over to get his mower!
Other than those things we didn’t do much more today. Obviously tomorrow is a big day for me, but I’ll let you know how the new job goes when I have a clue myself. I’m heading to work (sounds weird to say that) after dropping the boy off at kindy. Bob is picking him up in the afternoon, then bringing him home. Deanne will get back about half an hour afterwards, hopefully Josh will behave for Bob, and vice versa.
I took the picture while making lunch, not entirely certain what he was doing but he seemed to be enjoying himself.



Dear Mum,
Joshua and I played with his Playmobil toys this morning. We stopped at about nine as he fancied making a foodimal, from Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2. As he owns a little toy one we decided we’d try a fruit cockatiel. You can see how it turned out below.
I did a few bits of housework then we had lunch, I had a cheese and sun-dried tomato toasted sandwich, Josh went for a tin of spaghetti. After lunch we played in the garden for a bit, mainly throwing a football back and forth.
Deanne came home early, then our guests arrived. Emma brought Penny and her big sister Lillian over and they spent the afternoon playing while the three adults chatted and ate lots of cake. Emma arrived with some cupcakes they had made and we had lemon cake, banana cake and caramel slice that Deanne had baked. There was a lot of cake!
Everyone had fun and apparently Penny and Josh did exactly the same things afterwards, sitting on their respective sofas, curled up watching TV.
No problems putting the boy to bed tonight, thank goodness, hopefully we’ve seen the end of the sasquash night fears!
Josh wants to go to the Triassic Fun Park tomorrow, we have a free pass from his birthday party to get in free.
