This weekend I got to spend some quality time with my third son Blake, I can’t wait for him to move back to Adelaide in about 5 weeks. Both Blake and his daughter Jade stayed over last night and although she was quite upset and a bit off colour yesterday, she brightened up today. She has decided that Papa should not touch her hair as after her bath I tried to brush it, she has very long hair and I had four sons and am not used to long, knotty girl hair. I was politely told that she could do it herself……get back in your box Papa!
Yesterday another granddaughter Alyssa turned 7 but as she had a family day out we did not see her until today. Her birthday presents were a big hit, she loves reading and in fact got an award for reading at school, so she loved her Fairy Princess book. We also bought her an electronic diary which she did not put down the whole time we were there.
In all I got to see 5 of my grandchildren and two of my sons this weekend, and I spoke to the two other boys so not a bad weekend.
Last night Brian and I had dinner at The British Hotel in North Adelaide with friends Mary and Angela. I had a pork rib-eye with red cabbage and a celeriac salad, quite nice I must say although the service was a little slow. Someone who shall remain nameless accidentally relieved themselves in the female toilet, enough said.
Blake flew back to Melbourne this morning and like a good father I was up at 5.45 to take him to the airport, so I am quite tired despite having a long sleep this afternoon. I also woke up with a headache this morning that I cannot shake.
Back to work tomorrow. Thank you for reading.
