Starting to use the garden again
As a thankyou for looking after the kids for our 10th anniversary last ear we volunteered to look after our friend's child Eloise. Nobody died.
April and some friends went on a rally car experience at Brands Hatch on Saturday. It was one of April's Christmas presents. She had a great time although span the car a few time. Yikes!
It's time to harvest Arthur's carrots. Doh!
School sports day
Flo had her first school sports day on Friday so we popped along. Luckily I left before the dads race.
I had to sit through this on Friday
Arthur's had a growth spurt
We measured the kids on Saturday and Arthur's grown 3cm in a 2 and a half months. If he keeps this up he's be as short as me...

Thursday, 23 June 2022
Although tonight was a pain, April had a council meeting so left at 7, I had to get Arthur down to sleep between 7-8, he wasn't happy, which is rare, he generally goes straight down most nights.
All kids got to school and back, got fed and they're still alive. April owes...
I got soaked taking the kids to school this morning and it was still raining when I took the dog out. BBC said it would rain later in the day! Doh!

April's on holiday
April's on a three day away day with her new company so i'm left stuck at home with the kids. They're away for most of the day at nursery and pre-school but logistics get a little funny with having to pick both kids up at either end of town.
It's games night tonight so we have one of Flo's ex-carers baby sitting, and she's also picking up Arthur from the nursery so should be okay. Tomorrow will be interesting with both drop offs and both pick ups.
Watch this space...
I backed the Bladerunner RPG on kickstarter a few months back and they have released an early access version on pdf. It comes with a pre-made case file (adventure) too.
Now to convince my group to run it. I've passed it on to the barmen at my pub too.
Strike at the train station this morning. And quite a few honks of support from the passing cars. I support it too as it means I don't have to go into the office on Thursday! Thanks guys.

Flo can read
Flo was telling me on a walk home from school last week that she was the only one in her class that can read. I said "yes dear that sounds good" thinking that her version of reading was just being able to sound out a few letters which we'd seen before. Turns out she can. Bloody hell. Well done Flo!
Our friend Becky is moving out of Tonbridge and asked if she could use her house as a party venue. We of course said yes. Over the course of the afternoon there must have been 30 people if you include all the kids that popped over.
What's going on there?
I thought humans were the only animals to sleep on their back... I spotted Arwen from the floor above outside my office. Stupid dog!
Early from school
April had Arthur's 2 year review at his nursery on Friday night so I took Flo to one of the local ice-cream shops as a special treat. Here's she is very pleased with herself carrying her self made rainmaker stick.
Happy father's day!

Lovely walk this morning
Another 15k steps before work this morning. I ended up having to do 28.5k yesterday as April was late getting back from London so I had to pick them both up. I'm not taking the dog out at lunch as it's too hot so should reach that high today thankfully. It's too bloody hot.
