Bank Holiday

Dear Mum,

So today was a bank holiday, sadly Deanne had to go in to University for a lecture this morning, but on the bright side it meant I got a day with my boy!

Our weekend has been rather crazy…Saturday was really busy (for Joshua), because of the bank holiday Joshy didn’t have gymnastics today, so he went to a make-up class on Saturday morning. Of course he also does swimming on Saturday afternoon, so by the end of the day he was absolutely bejiggered.

Sunday was Julie’s birthday, there was a family gathering at a nice café/restaurant in Fremantle for lunch, the food was great and, unusually, there was a whole load of vegetarian food on the menu (thank you Julie). Unfortunately we were too full for pudding, but we have to go back because they had the most fantastic selection of (enormous) cakes. We’ll take you there when you visit.

Today Josh and I had our final trip to Scitech before our passes run out. Josh and I got ready at the same time this morning, in that he had a bath while I showered, he dried himself off and got his clothes ready and on. He helped me pack our snacks and lunch, then we set off. We were the second people through the door so he got to choose what to do first with no competitors. We played on just about everything, and Joshy had a fantastic time doing experiments, watching puppet shows and making and testing things.

I’ve included a bunch of pictures to make up for the dearth of posts recently, however they’re more or less all from this weekend. I’ll try and remember to drop some others in the Dropbox when I get a chance.

Anyway, life seems a bit more sorted now, I need to get on with a music review so I’ll write in a couple of days when I’ve finished it.

Love

Dan

Laptop

Dear Mum,

Sorry for not writing yesterday but our laptop finally arrived on Thursday and so I was setting it up last night, which took a while. However, it’s now sorted and I’m writing this on it, it’s pretty cool!

Yesterday we went to Joshua’s school to pick up his “book list”, which is just a bunch of things he needs to start Kindergarten with, notebook, marker pens, etc. We also met another lad who is probably going to be in Joshy’s class, and his name was Harry 🙂

In the afternoon I drove (on myself) to a computer shop and picked up a wireless switch to plug in to Julie’s router, which means that we can actually use all our devices, tablet, phones and laptop around the house rather than having to use their laptop.

For tea yesterday we actually went into Perth city as it was Chinese new year, so we watched some dancing dragons (Joshua wasn’t too keen), then bought some food. Joshua had a pizza, which he all but one slice of, Deanne and I had burritos which were very filling. We got home late-ish so Josh didn’t have a bath, but we had swum quickly before going out so he was okay.

This morning Julie took us to the markets at Kalamunda, they were quite good and we stopped for a drink half way round, then before we went found a toy shop and looked at the dinosaurs and Toy Story toys.

This a’vo the three of us went to see Big Nana, who gave us all the gossip. Then we went to Point Walter so Josh could have a ride on his bike and a play on the playground there, we also had an ice cream.

I’ll Skype you tomorrow at 10, your time.

Love

Dan
