Good morning Merlin my sweet and wonderful gentle giant.

Its a bit overcast today with a bit of a fresh wind and getting colder, hopefully the cloud cover will blow over.

The man clearing the property finally arrived yesterday at 11:30 am. I was highly annoyed, but he did say because of back problems he had to get another labourer. I think to clear the property its going to take a lot longer then we anticipated, there's still a heck of a lot to do as well as felling quite a few tree's. Anyway, that's his problem not mine. He's going to the hospital again today, but he did say he would be back on Friday, we'll see.

I've got to go to the mall this morning to do some shopping, while I'm there I might have some breakfast. I don't want to be too long as I don't want the dogs to be locked up for too long, its not fair on them.

Mia was in one of her happy, whining, happy moods again this morning, that child can't make her own mind up!

Its that time again Merlin, time for you to go play and have some more fun with your buddies. I hope that you are looking after Smiley.

Never forget just how much I love and miss you.

Your ever loving Daddy.

 

I love and miss you so much Merlin.

Good morning my sweet and wonderful gentle giant.

Its quite a nice day today, nice and bright and sunny and no wind, albeit a bit chilly, not as cold as it has been. It would make a really nice run and play day for you my boy.

The chap who was supposed to be clearing the property didn't arrive yesterday, I had the poor dogs locked in the garage, I was so annoyed. At around 4pm he arrived at the gate and told me that he had a hospital appointment which he had forgotten about, I didn't believe him until he showed me his appointment card. I was annoyed that he didn't phone me to tell me he wasn't coming. Anyway he said he was coming today, he has another hospital appointment tomorrow but he will be back on Friday and Saturday to make up lost time. There is still a lot of brush and tree's to clear, I think he will be here part of next week as well. Once he has cleared the property we will have him in once a month or so to keep the property clear. The blue gum tree's grow like weeds, clear them and a short time later they are back again. Its a never ending story.

Mia was very good again this morning, she was a bit sleepy when she woke up, but then she began playing and being mischievous.

Its that time again Merlin my boy, time for you to go play and have some more fun with your buddies.

I will always love and miss you my sweet boy.

Your ever loving Daddy.

 

I love and miss you so much Merlin and I always will

Good morning Merlin my sweet and wonderful gentle giant.

Its quite a nice day today, nice and bright and sunny and thankfully no wind, it would make a really nice run and play day for you.

Yesterday we had someone in to clear the property, two men worked non stop almost, all day and managed to get quite a bit done. With the amount that needs clearing I reckon they will be here all week, perhaps into next week as well. I had to lock the dogs in the garage all day yesterday, I really felt bad doing it, but there was no other option, what with chainsaws and what have you they could have got hurt, and I don't want that, the same today and the same until the work is done. The pain in the neck is, I am stuck at home again and I've still got stuff to do and stuff to buy in town.

Mia was in a good mood this morning, she was laughing and being very mischievous. Its so nice when she's like that, she can be such a delight.

Spud and Bella are loudly objecting to being locked in the garage, as I said, I really hate doing it, I don't want them to get hurt.

Molly is off her food again, she is very finicky with her food, if she doesn't like the food she is given she leaves it.

Its that time again my boy, time for you to go play and have some more fun.

I love and miss you so much my boy.

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning Merlin my sweet and wonderful gentle giant.

Its not too bad today, its a lot brighter then it has been since last Thursday, but its still a bit chilly. It would make a good run and play day for you my boy.

Yesterday I hoped to take your mum and Mia for lunch, but Melissa was working so your mum didn't want to go as she don't trust him in the house alone. Come to that I see her point. Instead I went shopping and topped the Chevy off with diesel, I was surprised how good it is on fuel for such a big vehicle and that was around town driving. I'm well happy with the truck so far. I had breakfast in McDonald's and then went to the supermarket and bought myself some goodies.

Yesterday was a bit of a fraught day, first of all your mum had a fire in the oven, she put pork crackling to crisp, forgot about it and it burst into flames. To cut a long story short I got a fire extinguisher and put the fire out, BUT there was powder everywhere, all over the Yorkshire pudding and over the gravy and your mum was covered in the stuff as was the kitchen. So I had roast beef with no Yorkshire pudding and no gravy. Then she went for a shower and the cold mixer wasn't working, so the shower was almost scalding. I had the temperature set just right, but your mum has skin like a rhino and likes the water far too hot for me. Now that's got to be fixed.

This morning we have got people arriving to clear the property of tree's and other vegetation, I know the dogs are going to go banana's, so I'll have to lock them in the garage until they have finished for the day. I can see it taking at least three or four days to clear the property. That means I am stuck here until they have finished. Oh well never mind, it will be worth it to get the property cleared I guess.

Its that time again my boy, time for you to go play some more.

Never forget Merlin, just how much I love and miss you.

Your ever loving Daddy.

 

I love and miss you so much Merlin and I always will

Good morning Merlin my sweet and wonderful gentle giant.

Its early (for a Sunday) and still dark outside but from what I can see it's very cloudy this morning, but not as cold. Yesterday and last night was very cold, yet Mia's idiot dad leaves the front door wide open. I really don't know what the man has got for brains, as I said, he's an idiot. Anyway, it would make a good run and play day today as long as it doesn't rain.

This morning I want to take your mum and Mia for lunch, plus I need to do some shopping, I just hope the dirt road outside our property has dried, I hate a dirty car.

Mia is in a good mood this morning, but she keeps making a heck of a noise with her toys. I spoke too soon, she started whining for some reason, now she's stopped whining. Oh boy what a child.

As its so cold in the night Molly has taken to sleeping on my bed, I usually wake up with her back pressed against mine. I don't mind as she helps keep me warm. Remember how you use to snuggle up with me during winter? It was so nice, I miss those days so much Merlin, so much.

Its that time again my boy, time for you to go play and have some more fun with your buddies.

Never forget just how much I love and miss you Merlin.

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning Merlin my special gentle giant.

Its a very cold rainy day today, not very nice at all. Its supposed to clear up this afternoon, but it will still be very cold. I hate this weather Merlin, roll on summer.

I was awake at 4am and couldn't get back to sleep, its now 10:30am so I am pretty tired right now. I keep nodding off sitting in this chair, I don't think it will be very long before I take a nap. I wanted to go into town this morning, but the dirt access road is extremely muddy and nasty and I don't want to get my SUV muddy, I've only just had it washed and it looks so nice and clean in the garage. Hopefully the road will have dried out by tomorrow morning so I can take your mum out for lunch and do some shopping.

Mia is in a good mood this morning.....thankfully. When she starts whining I get annoyed, very annoyed. Her dad is here at the moment, I know I've said this before, but I REALLY don't like him.

Its that time again my boy, time for you to go play and have some more fun.

Please Merlin, never forget just how much I love and miss you.

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning Merlin my sweet and wonderful gentle giant.

Its a very cloudy and cold day today, so cold I had to put a fan heater in the bathroom before I could take a shower, but it could make a good run and play day for you, you could run around all that you liked without overheating. The weather forecast does confirm that it will rain today at sometime, so again my Chevy is staying in the garage. I need to buy a high pressure system for removing mud that we pick up on this dirt road, but at the moment I am having to pay to get it removed when I take it in for a car wash. Hopefully the weather will clear up by the weekend as I want to take your mum for lunch on Sunday and take Mia with us.

It was raining very heavily yesterday, your mum said that roads in the town were flooded. The municipality would rather spend money putting up more and more traffic lights then fixing the sewer system that causes the flooding. I often wonder where their common sense is. Like the rest of African powers that be, they couldn't organise a bun fight in a bakery.

Mia was again in a bit of a mixed mood this morning, happy one minute, whining the next then then back to happy again.

Its that time again my boy, go run and have some more fun with your buddies.

I love you and miss you so much Merlin, please never forget that OK?

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning Merlin my sweet and wonderful gentle giant.

Its an appalling day today, very heavy rain and high winds, not a very good day at all and definitely not a good run and play day. The storms are supposed to last until at least tomorrow, maybe until Saturday. Early this morning I woke up and saw that we had a power cut, but thankfully it came back on before Melissa had to go to work. The sun is trying to break through the heavy cloud, but its struggling. I'm not taking my new Chevy out in this weather, I just had it washed yesterday. Remember the dirt road to our property Merlin, when driving along it during or after its been raining the vehicles get covered in horrible mud. The handy thing is being a senior citizen I get quite a good discount, they washed the Chevy, hoovered it out inside, clean the windows and generally give it a bit of a detail. It does look good when its clean.

Your mum managed to get a baby seat for Mia in the Chevy, but I didn't have a clue how to fit it. I took it back to where your mum bought it and they fitted it in minutes. Mia can travel safely with me now.

Mia was in a bit of a mixed mood this morning, she was happy one minute, whining the next and then back to being happy. Strange little girl.

Its that time again Merlin my boy, go play and have some fun.

I love you so much Merlin, please remember that.

Your ever loving Daddy.

P.S. I might be taking my computer in for repair this weekend, so I wont be able to post again until it comes back. Please don't think I have forgotten you.
