I could have posted pics of the kids, or the swag I netted this morning (the best bit being the little keyring that Niamh made for me). Or the photo of me out with my two youngest at KFC for Daddy’s treat. Or the awesome card they got me.
But if it wasn’t for the old bugger in this picture I’d not have them. Hell, I’d not be here. Thanks, Dad. For everything. Which you continue to do to this day. Seriously, take a rest at some point and let us do stuff for you!
“Daddy, does that t-shirt say YouTube?”
“Then what does it…”
“DON’T READ THE SHIRT!”
And that is why my t-shirt is hanging from the drying rack like that.
I went with Ellissa to see The Piano Guys tonight and it was utterly brilliant. A fantastic show that I’d recommend to anyone! Full review is up on Moshville Times, and it was great to spend an evening with the eldest – something I really don’t do enough of. Hopefully I’m making up for lost time with her, certainly we both enjoyed the trip to the Armadillo.
Niamh’s taken up painting miniatures. Well, Shopkins. There was one she wanted to change the colours of so she had a go. She’s already better at painting little things than I ever was – I always went for the pre-coloured Airfix kits for a reason.
A busy evening, and this was after dinner… Both kids with their heads down finishing their Kumon, then Niamh decided she wanted to try Daddy’s new guitar. So Austin had to have a go after. Then I ended up with both of them making a racket when Niamh dig out her little keyboard that Mummy had very kindly given her new batteries for (I will have my revenge). I’ll spare you the video footage. Jigsaw time next as the pair of them put a fleet of unicorns back together (100 pieces), but then balked at the next one with its 300 “tiny” pieces which they’ll have a stab at tomorrow.
