Dear Mum,

As you can imagine it’s been a pretty busy few weeks, even the weekend was crazy.

On Friday Deanne went out with the Mum’s from Kindy for an Xmas meal, so Joshua and I went to get some fish and chips, which we ate at the playground at Riverton. During Daycare he had actually taken part in some facepainting (for the first time ever) so I thought I better capture it for posterity, which is the first picture.

Joshua seemed more interested in playing on the playground than eating his chips and potato scallops, but eventually he did take some time out from his busy schedule to have dinner. The second picture is of him looking through the spyglass at the park, this was after we had eaten and we played together for a bit, ho didn’t get to bed until about 9 o’clock.

On Saturday I did what remained of my pre-Christmas, Christmas shopping. I’ll send the UK contingent’s stuff out in the new year. Then I met with Deanne and Josh at the shopping centre at Success, I turned up just in time to stop at Miss Maude’s for a drink and a cake, which was nice. Then we did our food shopping and came home. It was super busy at the shops, but I still have a bit of a disconnect going in my head about Christmas being three days away because it’s sunny and hot!

On Sunday we had an impromptu trip to the Zoo, most of the animals were laying about relaxing, although it wasn’t such a hot day as a few lately, we’ve been up to the high thirties a couple of times. The best picture I got was probably the third one below of the Koala having a bit of a kip.

My final, slightly exciting, news is that I’ve actually got round to publishing my book on Amazon. If you or ToF want it I’ll chuck you a copy of the finished one straight to your Kindles, but if you happen to get a chance tell Rich he can even buy it in Brazil by going to the Brazilian Amazon website and searching for Dan Ladle. The cover of the book is the fourth picture, although I’ve updated it since I did that one but it hasn’t shown up on the site yet!

Love

Dan

Dear Mum,

As I write I am sitting in bed being scratched by a small ginger cat. Yes, the smallest one has arrived and he’s settled in pretty well!

We got up and ready and went to Fremantle this morning. We walked to the waters edge and looked at the fish swimming around, then went through the restaurant that has fish tanks in to check those out too, after which we headed towards the town centre, found a café in which to have a snack (Deanne had a brownie, I had a fantastic caramel slice and Joshua, somewhat surprisingly, had ice cream). We then walked around the markets and looked at all the interesting things in them.

On the way home we went into a furniture shop, as we are thinking about getting Josh a new bed as his old one is starting to look a bit on the small side.

After a late lunch we went out and visited a few other furniture shops in Success, the best named place in Perth! But after seeing every bed shop at the shopping estate there we went to the airport and collected the Snugs.

Joshua had fish fingers for tea so he could share them with Snuggles. We watched a film Julie lent us tonight called Saving Mr Banks, about the woman who wrote Mary Poppins. It was surprisingly good.

Tomorrow Joshua is at kindy so me and Snugs will be spending some quality time together.

Love

Dan
