Thoughts of a middle aged man…..15 June 2013

It’s been a couple of days now but I’m back. I have had a really busy week and have been in bed early, no energy, and too tired to write, too tired to write anything coherent and remotely interesting anyway. Let’s see if I can make up for lost time.

My grandson Jayden turned 6 on Thursday, he is a beautiful little boy. Jayden was born 10 weeks premature but you would not know it to see him now, so much life in him, so vibrant, and a wonderful personality. We are off to see him for a birthday lunch tomorrow and should be very popular grandparents as we have the remote control helicopter he asked for. It took some searching but we have it.

This afternoon I will spend huddled in front of the television watching the Adelaide Crows trounce the Richmond Tigers, at least I hope they will trounce them and not the other way around. Come on boys show us some form and do yourselves proud, it is not too late to turn the season around.

Tonight Brian and I are babysitting two of Ryan’s children, Bailey and Calais. Bailey is 13 next month so no trouble at all, but Miss Calais, she is not yet 2 and is quite a liveware. I think Papa and Uncle Brian will be pooped when they get home tonight.

Last night I happened to mention to Brian that I had emailed one of my clients who lives in China, ands he posed an interesting question. When you email someone in a foreign speaking land, what language do they view the email in, is it English or the default language of their computer? If anyone knows I would be interested to hear.

Time to make lunch and settle down to an afternoon of AFL. Bye for now and thank you for reading.

Thoughts of a middle aged man…..8 June 2013

What a lovely day we have had today. We slept in a little later than normal but an hour later we were out for the start of a very busy day, and weren’t the idiots out in force on the Northern Expressway, maniacs speeding all over the place.

First stop Elizabeth City Centre as Brian needed some new work pants and we were looking for a birthday present for soon to be 6-year-old grandson Jayden, he has put his order in for a remote control helicopter, but a bigger one that he already has. It’s not looking too good buddy, Papa can find lots of helicopters but they are all little ones. I still have Harvey Norman, K Mart and Toys’R’Us to try so fingers crossed.

Second stop my son Blake’s for lunch, he made a chicken and pasta dish that was very tasty, I had no idea he could boil an egg, it was great son, thanks. While we were there my granddaughter Jade read me her reader, she speaks very softly but she did very well.

Next stop back home as we needed to tidy the house for visitors this evening, and I made an Orange and Polenta cake to have with our coffee after dinner. Cake made, floors washed, time to watch the first half of the football, I did not need to watch the second half. What is wrong with the Adelaide Crows, is this the same team that did so well last year and promised so much this year. Pull your fingers out boys, you are letting yourselves down.

Dinner tonight was at the Largs Pier with good friends Jo and Kate. We always have a good time with these good friends, great food, nice wine, intelligent conversation and maybe some not so intelligent conversation after the nice wine. After dinner back to our house, more wine, coffee and cake. I could not fit another thing in, I am fit to burst, pants undone and stomach bulging. What a great day.
