D likes me to sing her too sleep.

I made the mistake though of asking her is she wanted a new song, ‘cos her leyes lit up, then suspiciously said ” about what “.

  I was caught off guard, and only could manage 1 potato, 2 potato etc. Which worked, cos D said ” I like That , I like Potatos !!” 

Then though she said sing a song about dogs !    ( EH??  ) What ?   I couldn’t think of any songs about dogs !!  bar ( how much is that dog inthe window etc etc )

 Then she said like in Timothy Goes To School  ( childrens tv )

 You be Frank , I’ll be Frank, and we can dream about eating beans !!

  By this point my mind was shot !!  ( you have to see the program to understand I guess

Kids Eh…

 Listening to Dirt by Kids in glass Houses.


They’re ok, but there’s not much meat on ’em…!

JOKE don’t call social services on me !!  JOKE,

 D is getting really good at cooking, Or helping me and J to cook, so much so every night now she says ” I help you daddy ?” ” get a chair ” to which we have to pull up a chair for her, and she then stirs, or scrapes the chopped food in the pans

 Green’s make great ready made mixture, that suits toddlers down to a tee….

She is pretty mean with a pastry cutter also !!

I have tried gardening with D,

it worked, she is interested.

so on saturday J had gone shopping so I thought we would make some buns, ( cupcakes to D )

And it went quite well,,,,,,   D was very keen to stir, and generally put thing in the bowl……   several times, (whether she thought the packet was not quite empty i’m not sure !! )

So tonight I thought we would make some jam tarts, and keep the ball rolling !!!



 Couldn’t face pub quiz last night, I was suffering from indigestion, after eating something that didn’t agree with me, probably that left over cake at work , after Dave the Rave’s birthday ! A mear babe in arms at 25 ! It seems like ages since I was 25 !!

  So I got to bath D, and put her to bed.

The bath part is easy, bar the fact she wanted to wear a flannel like a scarf, and then was putting foam on her chin, and shouting “look tiny beeeeard !!! ”

 She then lay on the bed, OUR bed, after saying “no that’s MY pillow ” ( no your bed is actually in your room !! ? )  She dropped off really easily but was in one of the those ( I’m sleeping, OR am I, cos look I can i open my eyes if I hear a pin drop moods ) It makes trying to cross 100 yr old floorboards a challenge !!

Putting D to bed is a privilidge though !

D is growing up though, she is starting to show emotions more, she loves to watch The Snowman, yes yes, I know it is August !!!  Well, she watched it yesterday, and was nearly in tears at the end. ! that is a first, and also D + J slept at J’s parents the night before last due to the paint fumes, and D saw me through the window, when I got home from work and shouted to me, “Daddeeeee , I missed you ! ”

Those are the moments I need to treasure !!

now back to the wonderful world of selling ironmongery !!
