I Survived

Dear Mum,
Well, I survived my first week on call! It was hard going at times, but I survived. So tonight I can turn the mobile off and just sleep, without worrying about having to answer a call at three in the morning. Not that it actually happened, but expecting that is quite stressful in itself!
Before breakfast this morning Joshua “found” a toy from a Kinder Egg, that Nana had bought him yesterday. He opened the plastic egg up, built it and started sticking on the stickers all by himself. I was very impressed, so I took a photo.
This weekend we have to shop, tomorrow afternoon we’re going to the Swan Valley to see what we can find. Sunday is Penny’s 5th birthday party and Deanne’s great great aunt Chrissie’s 90th. So that’ll be a busy one.
Love
Dan

Fossil Maker

Dear Mum,

I had an early day today, partly because I’m on call this week and thought I’d make the most of the fact I was working anyway, more or less, but also so I could get home early enough to go to Joshy’s Gymnastics class with him and Deanne.

I arrived at about five o’clock, and got on with handling a bunch of jobs which had built up, while I was dealing with the network outage in Melbourne that I spent the better part of the weekend sorting out. The rest of the day was a mixed bag of new stuff and thing I’ve already encountered.

I got home in plenty of time to walk over to Joshua’s school and meet Dee as she arrived. Joshua is still doing dinosaurs at school and he brought out a fossil he had made of a stegosaurus skeleton, as you can see below.

Gymnastics was really good, he was the first of his group there and toddled off to sit down with the teacher while they were waiting to start. It was brilliant seeing him do the different exercises, like working on the bar, doing star jumps and attempting cartwheels. It made me feel quite emotional! He was very good.

It’s his day out tomorrow at kindy so I’ll find out how it went and try and write to you if I get a chance. Not quite such an early start for tomorrow, although I need to pick up some parcels from the sorting office (diabetes supplies), so I can’t leave too late in the afternoon.

Love

Dan
