It’s All Happening Now

Phew! What a whirlwind the last few weeks have been.  Actually the last eight months has been hectic.  Mom, Dad and Great Gran arrive tomorrow for three weeks holiday. K turns three next week with a butterfly party and the whole family.  D turned five last month with an Octonauts party and Amy celebrated the last of her thirties. Kevin hit the early mid thirties.  E has started smiling and laughing and also to sleep for more than three hours at a time.  D has learned to use a computer mouse and to find LEGO video clips online.

There is a new climbing frame in the garden and the apple trees are over loaded with a bountiful crop this year.  The garden shed needs a new roof and there is much to be done in side as well – new dishwasher, new tv, new coffee table, some painting, new carpet and much furniture shuffling to accommodate new bits and pieces.

Work is exciting with new work being done using open-source GIS application and developing the web GIS further.  Just need to get over the tiredness and sleep more…

Daniel, making connections

Amy is feeding E on Saturday afternoon watching a rerun of Harry Potter.

D comes in and looks at the TV.  After a moment he asks, “Is this Harry Potter?”

Amy asks how he knows.  He replies, “He’s in my LEGO magazine.”

Milestone Weekend

On Friday I got British Citizenship. On Saturday went for a bike ride, a swim, a car boot sale, out for lunch with my lovely wife and back for tea (no medals). Today K did poo in the potty and we had our first braai of the summer, complete with a Castle Lager. Top weekend all round, really.

First steps

I got an exciting (excited?) email yesterday.  Kirsten has taken her first three steps.  Does she know what she is letting herself in for?  At least she will slow down momentarily while she learns to walk properly and then it will all pick up again.

2nd Anniversary

Angus CouncilWell, whaddayaknow?  Two years at Angus Council have passed in a flash.  Still making maps and making sure people know where they are.  I have help now too which makes taking over the world so much easier.
