Push Me Daddy

Dear Mum,

This morning Deanne went out to a craft fair in Perth so Joshua and I had some Daddy/Joshy time. We got dressed, played with his Play Dough, did some stickering, then we went to the park and Joshua cycled a circuit which took in a large portion of this side of Bibra Lake. He goes fast enough for me not to be able to keep up with him now, but when there is an incline he keeps asking for a push to get him going again. When he gets far enough away from me he stops, turns round and shouts “take a picture Daddy”. So I have about ten pictures of a tiny dot in the middle distance.

After lunch Deanne and Joshua made some bran flake cakes and then, because we’ve had such a busy week with a few late nights for Joshua we spent most of the afternoon letting him watch TV shows. However, due to the fact that the power block for our TV box has blown he had to watch them on the laptop rather than the TV. This meant I had to teach him how to navigate the ABC4Kids website, start the videos and make them fill the screen. He learnt worryingly quickly! He’ll be better than us in a year or twos time I suspect.

So tomorrow I’ll be heading to Subiaco, where the iiNet shop is, and swapping our power block for a new one. I also need to pop to the bank to pay some money in and probably do some other stuff I’ve forgotten about. It doesn’t seem like it should be Monday again already!

The picture is of the pile of Teddies Joshua left by the front door. When I asked him what they were for he said that he was going to take them to Nana’s house when it’s Joshy/Nana day this week.

Love

iiNet Day

Dear Mum,
I dropped Josh off at daycare, then not long after I got home a nice man turned up, to deliver a big parcel containing our new TV box.
I was quite excited to get it but there were a number of unforeseen (but hardly unexpected) issues setting it up.
First of all there was a special plug thing to connect the box to our router, so I had to go to Masters (like B&Q, to Bunnings’ Homebase) to get an extension lead. Once home I discovered the thing couldn’t talk across the network so had to call iiNet to get them to do some technical magic at their end. On the second call I actually managed to talk to someone who knew what they were doing and it worked.
Then I had aerial problems, which I had to rely on my common sense to figure out, so that took a while! That was most of my day today.
The picture is from the sitting room towards the kitchen, dining room on the right and Joshua’s play room at the back.
Tomorrow we have Julie and Rick coming round for tea.
Love
Dan
