I'm sorry I didn't post yesterday, I have been having problems with my computer, I need to take it in and have it worked on.

Good morning Merlin my very sweet and wonderful gentle giant.

Its quite bright today although with some cloud but still a bit chilly. It would make a good run and play day for you my boy.

Good news finally, I should be picking up my new SUV sometime Friday. After months of agonizing of what to buy I've finally made up my mind. Its a really nice truck Merlin, exactly what I wanted and needed. Its one of the biggest if not the biggest available in South Africa and very safe with lots of air bags and other safety equipment, so your mum, Mia and Melissa should be safe when riding in it, that's my biggest concern. Early next year I want to take it to the ADDO elephant reserve, its been a long time since I was there last and I hear its been improved immensely.

Mia was in a bit of a whining mood this morning, which was most annoying, but she brightened up just before going to play school. She went to bed late last night and she was woken up tired.

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

I still love and miss you so much Merlin

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning Merlin my very sweet and special gentle giant.

Again last night and today is extremely cold, last night I was so cold I put another duvet on my bed, and thankfully I got quite a good nights sleep. Its quite bright and sunny at the moment, even though it is quite cold, so it would make a good run and play day for you my boy, you could run and play to keep warm and chase Spud around and teach him some manners.

Mia was in a bit of whining mood this morning, but apparently she got a gold star at play school yesterday for being so sweet and good. I'm very surprised to be honest.

Today I should be hearing about my new car, hopefully I can pick it up either later this week or early next week. Here's hoping, fingers, toes, legs and arms crossed.

Spud is barking again outside, he can be sweet, but at times he can be a pain in the neck. At the moment he's being a pain in the neck.

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 my boy.

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning Merlin my sweet and wonderful gentle giant.

Its been so cold, last night I was shaking I was so cold, today is still freezing but its nice and bright and sunny and thankfully no wind. Hopefully it will warm up soon, my hands, legs and ears are freezing. As it was so cold this morning I warmed a towel on the wall heater just to get my hands warm. Its awful weather Merlin, I hate it.

|Hopefully I will get my new car by the end of the week, how I wish that you were here to ride in it. Unfortunately Molly gets car sick for some reason, every time she rides in a car she is sick, I'd love to take her to the beach and let her swim in the sea.

Mia was so good this morning, she is definitely getting better behaved, but she does still slip up now and again, but I still love her deeply.

Your mum still loves her little car, but I find it too cramped, so cramped, in the passenger seat nearly sitting on the handbrake! I really don't like small cars, but she is pleased with it, so that's all that matters.

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

Please remember just how much I love and miss you Merlin.

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning my very sweet and wonderful big boy.

It really is a nasty day today, its raining and freezing cold, even Molly and Spud has come indoors its that nasty. I've been outside helping your mum, my hands are frozen, my legs are frozen as well as my feet. I hate this weather, the sooner spring comes the better.

Mia is being surprisingly good, she has the odd grizzle now and and again, but not so bad as she was. When she got up this morning I was making your mum her morning cuppa and she said quite sweetly “Hello Dad Dad.” When she's like this I love her to pieces.

This morning must have been cold, because Molly after her breakfast jumped up on my bed beside me and wanted a cuddle. She does love her cuddles that little girl.

If I get my new car, once the weather warms up I want to take it to the elephant reserve at ADDO, as its about 800 kilometres away it would be a good test for it. I haven't been there in over ten years, and its one of my most favourite places in the whole world. I love watching and photographing the baby elephants, they are so cute.

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

I love and miss you so much my boy.

Your ever loving Daddy.

My sweetest boy Merlin, I am so sorry I didn't post on your diary yesterday, but after the test drive I got home I was so tired and cold. I did intend to post on your diary but I kept falling asleep trying to keep warm. This weather is really awful Merlin, its nasty. The good news is I really loved the car I test drove, its just what I wanted, its a nice and big SUV, high off the ground, very comfortable seats, a powerful diesel engine, and four wheel drive. Hopefully I'll get the car by the end of next week. I took the car to show your mum and she quite likes it with all the features, but Melissa my daughter thinks it ugly. Personally I think its a lovely looking car., very impossing.

The weather today is even worse then yesterday, its been pouring with rain all night and this morning, really nasty, its cold enough for snow. Not a good run and play day for you my boy.

When your mum got home last night with Mia and her dad I helped her unload her car, among the stuff I got out of the car was a blanket, immediately Mia shouted “MY BLANKY, NAUGHTY DAD DAD!” I was only carrying the thing inside, I wasn't stealing it. That child could get someone hanged.

Your mum let the pack indoors as its raining outside, Molly came running in, jumped on my bed soaking wet and wanted a cuddle with me, I told her I love her, but I don't want cuddles when she is wringing wet! She is a sweet little girl Merlin.

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

I'm sorry about yesterday my boy, I hope you didn't think that I had stopped loving and missing you.

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning Merlin my sweet and wonderful gentle giant.

Its a very overcast day today, it looks like we could get some rain, a good run and play day for you for the moment.

I'm test driving a new car this morning, I don't know when the salesman is arriving with the car, so I can't hang around for long my boy, so I will have to cut this short. I'll try and make up for it tomorrow God willing.

Melissa was working late again last night which upset Mia something awful, she was so upset she didn't want her mum, your mum had in with her all night cuddling up. I've told Melissa she can't doing this to Mia working late all the time, Mia doesn't understand why her mum isn't there.

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

I love and miss you so much Merlin

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning Merlin my lovely gentle giant.

Its a very overcast day today, quite chilly but thankfully no wind, so it would make a good run and play day for you my boy. At the moment I'm eating a couple slices of buttered toast and needless to say Molly was sniffing the plate on my desk, I've stopped her grabbing one of the slices. Remember how you use to sit in front of me dribbling whenever I made a sandwich? I don't think I ever ate a whole sandwich, some of it I gave to you. I've eaten my toast and now I fancy another couple of slices. I'll wait until lunch time until I eat something.

Melissa was working well late last night, she didn't get home till around 10pm. I was a bit annoyed as your mum had to baby sit Mia and your mum was so tired that she needed to go to bed. Melissa doesn't think, she doesn't realise how tired your mum gets nowadays.

Mia was in a good mood this morning, singing “Old McDonald had a farm,” over and over and over. I was so glad when she went to school when the house is nice and quiet. Children make too much noise!!!

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

I hope you know just how much I love and miss you my sweet boy.

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning Merlin my sweet and wonderful gentle giant.

Its a very overcast day today, rain is forecast as well as being rather cold and now the wind has kicked up. Not a good run and play day my boy. I let the pack out, Bella barked to come inside and Molly came with her, so it must be quite horrible outside. Spud and Hobo are still doing their thing outside, but once it starts raining they will soon come running indoors.

Mia was in a really lovely mood this morning, she was really sweet, she was laughing and playing, just the little girl I really love. I keep asking her mum to open a savings bank account for Mia, so I can put some money in there as well as each month from my pension. By the time she's 18 she should have a nice little nest egg.

I've almost decided what car to buy, I've just got to test drive one and see what its like. Its one thing to test drive a car, its another thing altogether living with it on a daily basis. I'll see how it goes.

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

I love you and miss you so much Merlin.

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning Merlin my very special gentle giant.

Its another nice day, nice and bright and sunny, chilly but thankfully no wind. The pack are outside apart from Bella, she went outside to do her ablutions and promptly came back inside.

It looks like Melissa has sold her little car, now she can pay to get Mikes old cart sorted out, it does need a bit of work but not too bad and hopefully not too expensive. Her old car did her proud, even if Mia's dad stuffed the handbrake. That man is an idiot. The man wants to pick it up some time this week and bring the money with him, he's one of Mikes old workmates, a really nice chap.

Mia was in a good mood this morning thank goodness, I hate it when she's whining and grizzly that's when she gives me a headache! Last night she was very tired but wouldn't go to bed, she was whining until she fell asleep.

The house is out of milk at the moment, so I can't make a proper cup of tea, so I have resorted to your mums green tea. Its not bad, but I do prefer a proper cuppa tea with milk.

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

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

Your ever loving Daddy.
