My Boy Merlin

Good morning Merlin my sweet and wonderful gentle giant.

Its very overcast today, but it is so hot and humid and no wind whatsoever, its not as bad as yesterday but its still nasty. Last night I had a fairly good night, I only woke up once and went straight back to sleep.

Again I will have to cut this short again, I took my pain killers 4 hours ago and they have now worn off, so my back is hurting again. I find a comfortable position to sit down and when I get up and try to move I find my back as locked up. I'll be glad when my back is better. I've asked your mum to get me some muscle salve to ease the pain, so hopefully with the pain killers my back will sort itself out. I hate getting old Merlin, its painful.

I was teasing Mia my Granddaughter when she came home from play school, she grassed me up to your mum, she's a real tattle tail lol. But I still love the little tyke, but when she starts grizzling for little or no reason I do get very annoyed with her. Her mum was carrying her one evening and Mia was crying for no reason and throwing a tantrum, I pointed at her and said sternly “STOP YOUR NONSENSE RIGHT NOW MIA!” Surprisingly she shut up lol.

Bella wanted to go out, now she was barking to come inside, I managed to get out of my chair to open the door and now my back hurts again. I could curse Bella at times.

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

I love you so much my boy and I miss you beyond words.

Your ever loving Daddy.

 

I love and miss you so much Merlin

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

Its another very hot day again, no wind at all and no cloud cover whatsoever, and its going to get even hotter as the day goes on. The pack are not very energetic at all, they are trying to find somewhere nice and cool to lay down. This has got to be one of, if not the hottest summers we've had in South Africa. Its really nasty.

Again Merlin I am going to have to cut this diary entry short, I'm still in a lot of pain with my back. The pain killers are now taking the edge off, but its still very painful. The pain killers are so strong that when I took them yesterday afternoon they knocked me out, I was asleep when your mum came home and an hour afterwards. It was extremely hot again last night, but I did manage to get a fair amount of sleep thankfully. At least I can find a position in bed that's comfortable and doesn't hurt my back.

Mike my son still hasn't found a job yet in UK, I hope he gets one soon, it does worry me that he isn't working yet.

Anyway Merlin, I'm sorry but I need to close down now. I'll talk to you tomorrow God willing.

I do love you my boy and I miss you so much.

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning Merlin my sweet and wonderful gentle giant.

Its another very hot day again, although last night was quite nice and cool as there was a strong breeze coming in through the windows. It started off cool this morning, but now there is no wind whatsoever and not a cloud in the sky, the weather forecast stated that it is going to get even hotter as the day goes on. Molly is indoors, Spud, Bella and Hobo are outside, although I can see them coming inside very soon.

I wont be able to make this a very long diary entry Merlin, I've somehow hurt my back again and I'm in quite a bit of pain, even the strong pain killers I take aren't really working that well. I've no idea how I hurt my back, I may have turned my upper body and twisted a muscle in my back. Anyway, no worries, it should stop hurting sooner or later. Its no good complaining my boy, it doesn't help.

I've got confirmation in the post about my state pension which is good news, now all I need is confirmation of my work pensions.

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.

 

I love you so much Merlin and I always will.

Good morning Merlin my sweet and wonderful gentle giant.

Its a very hot blowy day today, so blowy it takes my breath away. Molly is sitting beside me because I am eating a bacon sandwich so obviously she wants some of it. Whatever sandwich I make she sits beside or in front of me looking at me, I am sure she is willing me to give her some. She knows full well I'll give in to her. Last night was nice and cool, I managed to sleep right through for once, but I did wake up at 5:30 am fully awake. I'll probably be asleep in my chair this afternoon. Molly jumped up and laid alongside me last night, it must have been a bit chilly on the floor for her.

I had a bit of good new yesterday, I got a quote on insurance for the car I am thinking of buying, I am surprised how cheap it is and its a good well known company, plus now that I am a pensioner I don't have to pay any access on any claim and on top of that I get a cheaper rate. So I am well happy my boy.

It was so funny last night Merlin, Mia was telling Spud off, she was running after him shouting “SPUD, SPUD, SPUD” and nagging him. Poor old Spud couldn't get away from her, wherever he went she followed him, finally Mia got fed up telling him off and went to aggravate her mum instead. I don't know what Mia had been eating but she was like a ping pong ball bouncing off the walls.

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

I do love you so much Merlin, please never forget that.

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning Merlin, I hope that you are having lots and lots of fun playing with your buddies.

Its another hot day but very windy, there's some cloud in the sky so hopefully it will be cooler today. Last night was so nice, there was a strong wind blowing which came I through the windows making it nice and cool, I only woke up once so I did get a fair nights sleep although I was awake at 5:30 am.. As it was quite chilly last night Molly decided that she wanted to sleep on my bed, and as usual taking up a lot of room. Remember how much room you use to take up on my bed??? When I told you to get off the bed you gave me the dirtiest looks, that said “HOW DARE YOU TELL ME TO GET OFF???” Your really amused me Merlin, even when you were in a bad mood. Just like you, Molly is so jealous when Spud wants a cuddle, she pushes her way in and pushes Spud away from me, just like you use to do.

As I told you yesterday I went to look at some new cars, one I really liked is due a price increase this month, I got an insurance quote for the car and even with the price increase I can afford it. Its a really nice car Merlin, I know that you would like riding in it. When I test drove one I fell in love with it, its just what I want. I just have to wait and see just how much my pension pays out, but the figures look good so far.

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

I love and miss you so much Merlin.

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good afternoon Merlin my sweet and wonderful gentle giant.

Its another very hot day today, there's a bit of wind, but its a hot berg type wind, so its not cooling at all. I don't think you would like going outside today, all the pack are indoors today, its too hot even for Molly and Spud.

I'm a bit late today, I went shopping with your mum and looked at some new cars. I wish I had my pension today, I was offered a really good deal on a brand new car, and I don't know if that offer and that particular car will be available next month. I'll just have to wait and see.

I am sat in my study writing your diary and feeling so hot, even with the fan on. How I wish it would cool down.

Mia is being told off by her mum, that child is so strong willed, I know she is going to be a handful when she gets older. Come to that, she's a handful right now!

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

I love you so much Merlin, never forget that....please.

Your ever loving Daddy.

 

Good morning my sweet and wonderful big boy Merlin.

Good morning Merlin my very sweet and wonderful gentle giant.

Its another hot day, no wind whatsoever and no cloud cover. We had a stiff breeze last night so the heat didn't wake me up so often, I woke up at about 4 am, then slept through. Maybe one of these days I will sleep right through until the morning. Molly, Spud and Bella are indoors, Hobo is out there somewhere mooching about somewhere on the property, sometimes at night he doesn't even come indoors.

Mia's dad is here again, so far he is behaving himself, if he starts problems again he's out on his ear, I wont stand for any more of his nonsense.

I was thinking about buying two cheaper cars so that Melissa can have a new car, I mentioned it to your mum and she reckons its a bad idea, as I wont be able to get into the car I was thinking of buying as its too low to the ground, so I have decided to buy the car I was thinking of buying and sort out Mikes car that he has left here when he went to UK. Its not in bad condition, in fact its in beautiful condition, so it should last her for quite a while.

Lately Bella has been laying beside me or never very far from me, she has never done that before so I wonder why she is doing it now.

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

I love you my boy and I miss you so much.

Your ever loving Daddy.

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

Last night was so nice and cool, this morning when I awoke it was very misty actually quite chilly, its now almost 12 noon the sun has evaporated the mist and its now getting hot again, but there is a nice breeze. It might make a nice run and play day as long as you drank plenty of water. A few days last week what wind there was, was coming off the Kalahari desert and it was a really nasty hot wind, so hot that even the house fans were not cooling at all, all they did was blow hot air everywhere. Nasty.

My daughter's car is having problems, if I were able to work on it I could fix it for her, but sadly I cannot work on cars any more and because her car is so old it might not be worth taking it into a garage for repair, so it might be best to scrap it. As she cannot afford to buy another car I might have to change my plans with my new car, I might have to buy two new cheaper cars. I don't want to buy her a second hand car and end up with a load of problems, I'll see if I can buy new so at least she will have a warranty and her servicing is free for 5 years. I'll have to see what I can do, I'll have to do a bit of research.

I haven't heard from Mike my son about his getting a job, I hope he gets one soon and a good paying one at that.

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

I do love and miss you so much my boy. Please never forget that OK?

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning Merlin my very sweet and wonderful gentle giant.

Thankfully its a much cooler day today, but still humid. It rained last night cooling everything off, I only woke up once last night and managed to sleep from 2 am right through to 6:30 am where usually I am wide awake at 4 am. It would make a good run and play day for you today my boy, as long as you drank lots of water.

Sometime soon I am going to have to take my laptop in for repair, so I wont be able to talk to you for a week or more. If I go on that trip to the ADDO elephant reserve I'll take my laptop with me, but I don't know if I will get Internet reception, so again I might not be able to talk to you for another week. Don't think I have forgotten you my boy, because that will never happen, never in a million years.

Mike my son has applied for a number of jobs, hopefully he will get a good one. The Royal Mail is his best bet, although its now privately owned the job comes with very good working conditions like sick pay and a pension when he retires. Won't he wont like is getting up early in the mornings, especially during the winter months when its snowing or pouring with rain and extremely cold winds.

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

I love you my boy and I do miss you.

Your ever loving Daddy.
