Good morning Merlin my special sweet and wonderful gentle giant.

The weather here cannot make its mind up, yesterday we had a bad storm with thunder, we had very little rain, while in the town there was flash flooding. At the moment there are storm clouds, but it looks like the wind is pushing them out to sea. I hate it when the weather is so unsettled like it is right now, maybe it will clear up later on. Its quite hot and very humid at the moment and getting uncomfortable. The pack are outside at the moment, Molly and Spud are going bonkers play fighting as usual, Spud gets carried away and hurts Molly, then Molly loses her temper and attacks him and it all starts all over again. But what is fun to watch is when they play chase, Molly jinx's around, at times throwing Spud off, Molly can really get a gallop on, she stretches out and really moves. The pack had enough of the wind outside and decided to come back inside. It might make a good run and play day for you my boy, if you can put up with the wind.

Lately I have been drinking gallons of soft drinks to quench my thirst, I should be very careful because of my diabetes. I check my sugar level every morning, if my sugar level is too high I take a tablet over and above my normal dose which drops the level. With Christmas coming up I have to be especially careful with all the tempting sweets and chocolate and cakes. Its a pity I don't get my pension pay out until early next year, as I'd love to spoil Mia, I am however going to spoil her on her 2nd birthday in May, I want to buy her a battery powered Land Rover so she can drive around the property. I think she will love it.

I guess its time that you went and had some more fun with your buddies.

I do love you so much Merlin, I assure you that I will never ever forget you.

Your ever loving Daddy

 

I love you so much Merlin.

Good morning Merlin my so special sweet and wonderful gentle giant.

The weather looks a lot better today, its bright and sunny but thankfully the wind has dropped quite a bit. Because of the high winds we couldn't let Mia play outside, its been that strong is could have easily blown her over, besides which she would have dust blown up in her face. Its such a shame as she loves going outside to play. Even though the wind has dropped today high winds are forecast for the next week or so, I'll be glad when the high winds are finished.

Mike finishes with his company this Friday, hopefully he will get a job right away in the UK. I've got a sneaky feeling he is going to get serious with a certain young lady in the UK, she has been a great help to him, finding him work (hopefully) a place to live and her mum has even said she will feed Mike at cost. The young lady's mum has been teasing the young lady, asking her if she is going to marry Mike. We never know he might come for a visit to South Africa with a new wife and a baby, something Mike really needs. I know he will make a brilliant father and husband. I'd love to have a Grandson, I really would as would your mum and Melissa would become an aunty.

I guess its time that you went and had some more fun with your buddies.

I love you so much and I miss you more then I can say.

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning Merlin my so sweet and wonderful gentle giant, I hope that you are having better weather then we are. The high winds haven't dropped at all and it looks like the same for the next week or so. The sky is very clear with no cloud cover as far as I can see and according to the weather forecast we are in for very high temperatures. The pack goes outside to do their ablutions and run back inside again, even they don't like the high winds. I dread to think how ships at sea are coping, I haven't checked the ocean but I would assume there are some very high seas. The waters around here are very dangerous, its not called the “Cape of Storms” for nothing.

Mike is at a bachelors party for one of his workmates, apparently they are having a high old time, playing paint ball and generally having fun. Good for them.

When Mia came out of her bedroom this morning your mum called out to her, immediately Mia had a huge smile on her face and came running into the bedroom shouting “NANA NANA NANA.” She really loves your mum and your mum loves her so much. Mia isn't too fond of me at the moment, last night I told her off for bouncing in her high chair at the dinner table, she stopped then hung her head giving me sly glances out of the corner of her eye, it was so funny. As much as I love her I wont stand for her nonsense or misbehaviour.

Spud has just come into my study and is sitting under my desk wanting a fuss made of him, when Mia wants to make a fuss of him he runs off, he's terrified of her. Spud can be such a wuss at times.

I suppose its time for you to go play and have some fun.

I love you so much Merlin

Your ever loving Daddy

 

Good morning my sweet and wonderful big boy Merlin.

Good afternoon Merlin my sweet and wonderful gentle giant.

Its another day like yesterday and the past few days, nice and bright but high winds and it looks like that's the weather for at least the next week. It might make a good run and play day for you as the wind should keep you cool. The pack is outside at the moment, but now Bella is barking to be let indoors.

Last night the alarm in Melissa's shop went off, as Melissa was feeding Mia your mum and I went down to she what was wrong, we found that the back door hadn't been closed properly and locked and the wind blew it open thereby setting off the alarm. Your mum then realised that she didn't have the keys to the shop, so she had to phone Melissa and get her to come down with the keys. Your mum is pure murder when she comes to keys, she hasn't got a set method of what she does with them, she either throws them in her bag or puts them in her pocket or puts them down and forgets where she put them. I let her know I had a huge sense of humour failure! After a while Melissa arrived with the keys, opened the shop and shut off the alarm. At least Melissa made me a cup of coffee. I finally got to bed at 2am this morning, so this morning I caught up on some sleep, actually I am still tired. I'll probably fall asleep this afternoon.

I suppose its time that you went and played with your buddies.

I love you and miss you so much my boy. Never forget that OK?

Your ever loving Daddy.

 

Good morning my sweet and wonderful big boy.

Good morning Merlin my sweet and wonderful gentle giant.

Its a very bright day today, I cannot see any cloud at all from my window, but its extremely windy and has been since yesterday around midday. I hate this wind as it takes my breath away and I don't enjoy sitting outside watching the world go by. It might make a good run and play day for you, but at the moment none of the pack are asking to go outside. Usually Molly barks to be let outside, but she is quite happy laying down sleeping and snoring her little head off, the same for Spud, Bella and Hobo.

Your Mum bought Mia a play set with a swing, a slide and a climbing frame all in one. All we have got to do now is build a fence around the allotted space to keep the dogs out and lay Astro Turf so that she doesn't hurt herself if she falls over. Your Mum is so excited and can't wait to see Mia's face on Christmas morning. Hopefully when my pension comes through I want to buy her for her birthday in May a battery operated car that she can drive around the property, unfortunately I can't do it at the moment as I don't have the money, but I think it will make a good birthday present for her.

Mia has got one heck of a temper, apparently one of the other kids at play school took a ball away from her, not once but apparently he's always doing it, so she lost her temper and bit him. The teacher said that he deserved what he got. I'll say one thing for her, he stands up for herself.

I guess its time that you went and had some more fun with your buddies.

I love you Merlin

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning Merlin my sweet and wonderful gentle giant.

Its very clear today, I can't see any cloud whatsoever, there is breeze blowing which should help keep everyone cool. It rained quite a bit yesterday which did my failed crops a bit of good I suppose. It should make a nice run and play day for you my boy, give Spud a few lessons in behaving and play with Molly. Molly the past few days has snuggled up with me, last night was quite cold so Molly and I laid back to back keeping each other nice and warm. Spud was driving me crazy yesterday, he wanted lots and lots of cuddles and affection, so much so it was getting over powering, strangely Molly didn't interfere, usually she gets very jealous and tries to get in between me and Spud. Very odd.

In just six weeks Mike my son leaves for UK, I have no idea when I will see him again. I'm going to miss him. He is looking at the UK through rose tinted glasses, its true that health care is free and there are benefits while he is looking for work, but I don't think he will find it as hunky dory as he thinks it will be. On top of that the north of England gets very cold in winter, cold that he hasn't experienced in over 20 years. Well we'll see how he gets on, if that's what he wants I hope he makes a go of it. We never know, he may come back for a holiday with a new wife and baby. He will make a brilliant father and husband.

I guess its time for you to go play and have some fun with your buddies.

I do love you and miss you so much Merlin.

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning Merlin my sweet and wonderful gentle giant.

You have received another “One of today's Picks” honours again my sweet boy. I am so proud of you.

Yesterday was very overcast in the afternoon, I kept expecting it to rain, but it didn't. This morning however, it did begin to rain, nothing heavy but just enough to cool things off and water my failed crop. I am waiting to see if I get any potatoes for Christmas lunch, if I do I will be very surprised. The runner beans are a complete and total failure, the few I did manage to pick were tasteless, nothing like the ones I grew in England all those years ago which were so full of flavour.

Molly got out this morning while it was raining, I called her inside and she is absolutely soaking wet. Three times she tried to jump up on my bed, three times I told her an emphatic “NO! GET OFF!” She went into the dining room to lay down with a bit of a sulk. Last night she jumped up on my bed and laid back to back with me, she kept making “hmm mm I'm so comfortable” noises. She does like her comfort just like you did. As a run and play day today Merlin, I think you would be far better off laying down indoors and sleeping. I guess I will spend the day watching TV or even perhaps falling asleep in my lazy boy chair, which I have a habit of doing lately.

I have a new lease on life with Mia, but your mum has more then a new lease on life, she is like a teenager again playing with Mia. Those two love each other so much, I must admit I am still not use to be called Granddad, which was my dads title until he passed. I don't feel like a Granddad, I suppose as time passes I will get use to the title.

I guess its time for you to go play and have some more fun with your buddies Merlin.

I love you so much my boy and I hope you know that I miss you so much.

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning Merlin my sweet and wonderful gentle giant.

I've got big fat fingers this morning, I keep hitting the wrong keys. Its a nice bright day today with some cloud and very little wind. Yesterday was so hot, I couldn't sit outside for very long as the garden bench is in direct sunlight and no shade. I went and sat in the garage with the door open which was quite a bit cooler and as usual Molly laid beside me, if Spud came anywhere near me she would chase him off. According to her I'm her Daddy, not Spuds. She really is a funny little girl Merlin. Later on yesterday it became very overcast which cooled things off quite a lot, then it began to drizzle with rain, I hoped we was going to have a down pour which would have really cooled things off, after a few minutes however, it stopped, but remained overcast for the rest of the day. Last night before dinner as it was extremely humid I sat outside until your mum called me in to eat, it was quite nice sitting outside it was so nice and cool. Today might make a good run and play day for you my boy as long as you were careful and kept in the shade as much as possible. The dogs are drinking so much water lately, I filled their water bowl then ten minutes later it was empty again. I really have to keep an eye on their water and make sure they have all that they want.

Mia fell over this morning and hit her face, the poor little mite did cry she was inconsolable, but your mum managed to get her smiling again. Mia really loves your mum, she shouts and I mean shouts NANA NANA NANA until your mum answers her or goes and picks her up. Your mum really loves Mia you can see it in her face and her eyes. What annoys me though is when Mia throws a tantrum and boy does she throw one, I really have to work hard to keep my opinions to myself.

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

I love you so much Merlin.

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning Merlin my sweet and wonderful gentle giant.

YOUR DIARY IS AGAIN ONE OF TODAYS PICKS, CONGRATULATIONS MY SWEET BOY, I AM SO PROUD OF YOU!!!

Its very hot and humid this morning my boy and its not 7am yet, thankfully the wind has died down, yesterday was not very pleasant at all sitting outside, dust was blowing up everywhere, my garden bench was blown over. Really nasty. It might make a good run and play day today for you, there is some cloud, I suppose about 50%, but you would really have to watch out for heat exhaustion.

Bella and Hobo when they are let out in the mornings have begun running up to the fence again and arguing with the dogs next door. So annoying, so this morning I stood outside before your mum let them out, Bella and Hobo went to head over to the fence, saw me and changed their minds, they KNOW they are doing wrong yet they keep on doing it. It is so frustrating Merlin.

Mia is getting really verbal lately, she is beginning to form words and saying Molly, and when your mum asks “Where's Granddad?” she points to me, but she can't quite say it yet. She aggravates Spud by chasing him around the house, poor Spud, he is really terrified of her, he is hiding under my desk at the moment. Molly is so good with Mia, Mia climbs over her and Molly doesn't get annoyed she lets Mia do it. I am really pleased with Molly how she interacts with Mia.

I suppose its time that you have some more fun with your buddies my boy.

I love you so much and I miss you.

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning Merlin my sweet and wonderful gentle giant. I only just made the morning, I was too lazy to get going this morning. I woke up at 8am but couldn't be bothered to get moving, I had a few cups of tea while sitting on my bed, I finally dragged myself into the shower at 11am and finally got dressed.

WELL DONE MERLIN, YOUR DIARY IS ONE OF TODAYS PICKS. I AM SO PROUD OF YOU MY BOY.

The past few days have been extremely windy, not very nice at all and also very hot, if the sun didn't drive me indoors the wind did, even Molly and Spud were fed up with it. The wind has died down a bit right now thankfully, buts its extremely hot outside, it might make a good run and play day for you my boy but you would have to be careful. Old Aunty Bella seems to be hanging on, she's not ready to cross the bridge quite yet and as long as she isn't in pain thats fine. Yesterday she had a mad five minutes and played with Spud, you could have knocked me over with a feather.

Your mum has been doing some Christmas shopping, she has been trying to find winter coats for Mike when he goes back to UK next month, not easy in the height of summer, anyway your mum found him a really nice coat that should keep him warm. He's going to find it very difficult, leaving temperatures of 120 degree's to below zero. I know, it was like that for me when I came back to UK after serving in the RAF in the Far East. I was never really warm even during summer, my buddies were in shirt sleeves while I was wearing my full heavy battle dress and I was still cold.

I'm still undecided what new vehicle to buy, the mini bus is very nice inside, lots of really comfortable seating, really luxurious, but the 4x4 truck is also so very nice, it also has a bigger engine and automatic gearbox. I think I am more of a 4x4 drive then a mini bus driver. I guess I'll have to wait and see.

I guess its time for you to go play and have some more fun with your buddies.

I do love you and miss you so much Merlin.

Your ever loving Daddy
