Yes, Well, Here I Am

// October 25th, 2005 // Geekery, Kids, Life

Sorry about the lack of bloggage – it was a public holiday here yesterday, Australian readers. We had a nice long weekend. On Sunday we went to an old childhood haunt of mine called Percy’s Reserve. It’s a park on the edge of the Hutt motorway with a duckpond, picnic tables in the bush and best of all, a strange little narrow cave that goes about 10 metres into the rock. The boys got bored of the ducks very quickly (the ducks were rather overfed and reluctant to eat more), but the dark cave was a great success. Then we finally went for a ride on the Petone miniature railway. I feared we were going to derail with me, Jan, the rather large driver and another mother on it as well, but we survived – boys loved it of course. Then it was Mr Whippy and paddles on the Petone foreshore. I felt rather jealous of Wanda’s proximity to such fun. Go the ‘tone!

Helen arrived back from her Sydney jaunt yesterday. We missed her!

Jan & I are right into World of Warcraft and are playing as a pair of busty dwarven maidens. Jan’s 10 day trial runs out soon, which is probably a good thing – we might actually pick up some toys and clean the kitchen sometime.

Archie has a horrible squirty bottom so is staying home from kindy today. We’re waiting for the inevitable contagion to spread throughout the family.

    Good on you for doing the train. I did tell you I saw it derail eh?

    Perhaps you should move out to the ‘Tone. The more the merrier.

    Sorry aunt flo dropped in for a visit, thus disrupting the process. Keep us posted. As for horrible squirty bottom and the contagion… good luck with that over there. I hate the person to person inevitibilities that happen in such an instance. wash hands often.
