Housework

Dear Mum,
My first night on call last night, I got two calls, both from the same bloke. One was about a printer issue then, a couple of hours later, the sites whole network connection had gone down.
So far I’ve spent about three or four hours on getting it sorted, and it’s still not fixed!
Apart from that we went to the turning on of the City Xmas lights last night. There were people dressed up, singing and dancing. Joshua loved it, he had a look of stunned amazement on his face for the whole thing.
Today Deanne and I have been cleaning and tidying, with help from the boy. The house is starting to look almost presentable. Tomorrow we’re going to start on the spare room, which is still full of empty boxes, random things we haven’t unpacked and Joshy’s Xmas presents. It’s likely to take rather a long time!
Hope you like the picture of Santa in shorts!
Love
Dan

The Big Clean Up

Dear Mum,
After dropping Joshua off at kindy I came home and looked round the house for a bit, trying to decide where to start the big clean up operation after yesterdays three boy playtime at our house. There were toys everywhere!
There were also blankets strewn around the various bedrooms, blankets which should have been in the sitting room over the back of the sofas for when Deanne gets cold.
There were also a number of dishes from the various cakes and biscuits which were made for the occasion.
After everything was back in its rightful place I hoovered up the dirt, sand and dust that the boys had inadvertently tracked in from the garden.
It didn’t actually take all that long and once I’d sorted the cleaning out I made some lunch and got on with some job hunting.
I made soup for tea. Deanne was going to do a mushroom stroganoff but she’s feeling a bit under the weather (a cold, I think), so I chucked a small percentage of the enormous pumpkin Bob bought over last week in a pot and boiled it until it was ready.
This evening Dee is sorting our money spreadsheet out and I’m watching Top Gear, as per the picture. I wouldn’t be but there really isn’t anything else on!
Love
Dan
