My sweet and wonderful big boy Merlin

Good morning my sweet and wonderful big boy. Its quite a nice day today, its still cloudy but the sun is pushing through, its not too cold just a bit fresh and there's no wind thankfully, but it was cold during the night. It looks like spring is here at last and it will start getting hotter and hotter, which means keeping an eye out for snakes. I don't care if they are protected or that they do some sort of good job, if it means my Granddaughter, my family including Molly, Spud, Bella and Hobo the snakes lose out every time. We've already had a Cobra and a Puff Adder, the Cobra went away, the Puff Adder didn't so he had to be evicted.

I've got quite a few repairs to do to the trailer plus I want to modify it quite a bit so that should keep me occupied for a while once I get hold of the material, like the steel and the wood, plus of course all the nuts, bolts, screws and of course welding supplies.

Mike my son best friend Sean phoned him last week and told him that his dad had died. It was quite a shock, Chris was such a nice fellow, I always liked him. Its quite a shock for Sean and the family, Sean should have been at sea when his dad died but thankfully he called off the trip. Rest in Peace Chris, you will be missed.

Sorry to end on such a sad note Merlin, but I guess its time that you went and had some fun with your buddies.

I love you my boy so much

Your ever loving Daddy

Good morning Merlin my sweet and wonderful big boy.

Congratulations again Merlin, your diary has been featured. Well done my boy, I am so proud of you.

It another over cast day but thankfully no rain (so far) and no wind, its very much like yesterday and its not too bad a play day, you could run around chasing Spud as much as you liked without over heating.

Mia my Granddaughter loves going walkabout on the property, she is so interested in everything, she is like a sponge taking everything in, she points at tree's, butterflies, crows flying overhead squawking, ants and termites, everything is interesting to her, she really is a wonderful child Merlin, she's my little treasure. I do love her so much and I know you would too. Mia loves Molly, Mia wraps her arms around Molly and says “AHHHHH,” its so sweet.

We had a water leak last night and had to call out a plumber, the chap turned up not long after and fixed the leak, all done and dusted within half an hour. I'm going to thank then for their service, its not often we get service like that in South Africa. Brilliant.

I can't remember if I told you, I was talking to Mike my son when he suddenly burst out laughing, I turned around to see Mia sitting in the dogs water bowl, she was walking backwards I assume and when her heels touched the bowl it made her sit down.

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

I love you so much Merlin my sweet and precious boy.

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning Merlin my sweet and wonderful big boy.

CONGRATULATIONS MERLIN, your diary has been selected in one of “Today's Picks.” Congratulations and well done my boy.

Its quite like yesterday here, its very overcast but the sun comes shinning through, its not too cold just a bit fresh and there is no wind. So all in all it could be a good run and play day for you my boy, chasing Spud as much as you liked.

Mike gave Mia a ride on the tractor again yesterday while he collected a few bits of tree branches on the trailer that had blown off in high winds. Mike couldn't love Mia any more if she was his child, he really loves that little girl, his face lights up when they play together. Mia was a bit naughty though yesterday, she threw a temper tantrum. She was laying on the floor screaming (and I mean screaming, it was hurting my ears) because her mum Melissa was ignoring her. If I had my say I'd smack her bum and send her into her room, I'm not one of those touchy feely people. I brought both of my children up with discipline, not spiteful or nasty, and both of them turned out wonderful, kids to be proud of. One woman even remarked “I wish my daughter would date your son Mike, he's so very respectful and polite.”

All the dogs are outside playing at the moment, running around sniffing and exploring, I'm keeping an eye on the window making sure they don't go near the fence next door.

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

I love you so much Merlin

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning Merlin my sweet and wonderful big boy, I hope the weather is better where you are. Its very overcast with a very light misty rain, not a very nice day at all, not a good run and play day for you my boy. Apparently its going to be like it all next week and next weekend so any work lined up is going to be scuppered.

The grader on the back of the tractor finally fell apart yesterday, not bad considering its been going for about 3 or maybe 4 years and I made it out of old scrap metal that I had laying about. Maybe I'll repair it, but it will need more strengthening supports. Yesterday Mike and I got one of the trailers sorted, blew up the tyres and hitched it to the back of the tractor. I've got a few idea's for it like building drop sides and a ladder rack, it does however require new tyres and wheels and a new wooden bed. That should keep me occupied when summer gets here soon, a lot of woodwork and metal work including welding. Yesterday while Mike and I were working Molly was really getting in the way, she is so nosey that girl, she has got to know what everyone is doing, in the end I had to shout at her to go away in case she got hurt, and I don't want that at all.

Your mum bought a new weed eater but she can't use it because of the rain, so she's a bit peeved lol.

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

I love you my boy, please never forget that.

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning Merlin my sweet and wonderful big boy, I hope that you are having lots of fun and games running and jumping and chasing and rough and tumble with your buddies.

Its looks like another glorious day today, its so bright and sunny. There is some cloud but nothing to write home about, its nice and warm and no wind whatsoever, so its another really nice run and play day for you.

Bella really is getting nasty with Molly lately, even worse then before. She doesn't do it with Spud or Hobo, I guess its because Molly is female. Bella has also growled at Mia more then once, and that I will NOT allow.

Talking about Mia, yesterday I told you that Mia came home with a red nose and we couldn't get it off, well when Mia went to play school yesterday all the children had red noses, as their parents couldn't get it off either. I bet that was one amazing picture.

Today Mike and I are going to try and start the tractor as the battery has been on a trickle charge for a week so it should be nicely charged up by now.

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

I love you my boy, so much.

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning Merlin my sweet and wonderful big boy.

Yesterday was glorious and its looks the same today. There's not a cloud in the sky, no wind, nice and warm and a nice gentle breeze barely moving the leaves on the tree's. The one thing we have to look out for now is snakes, I don't care if they are protected or not, if its a choice between my Granddaughter or my dog and any snakes, sorry but the snakes lose every time, its that simple.

Mia came home with a painted red nose from play school yesterday afternoon, it really looked hilarious, BUT, the problem is we can't get the red off! We don't know if her nose is still red from whatever the teachers painted on there or her mum and your mum trying to get it off. It would be so funny if every child in the play school has come to school with a red nose. When Mia came home from play school yesterday, Mike my son and I took her walkabout, she really loves it outside. Oh Merlin, she is such a little sweetheart and her baby blue eyes melt my heart.

Last night Molly jumped up on my bed and really snuggled in close with her back pressing against mine, she really is a sweet little girl Merlin as I have told you many time and she does get better and better everyday. She's a good girl Merlin, thank you for finding her for me.

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

I love you my boy, never forget that OK?

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning Merlin my sweet and wonderful big boy.

Yesterday was quite nice, quite a bit of sunshine and nice and warm, today looks even better so far. Its beautifully bright and sunny, hardly a cloud in the sky, not too hot but nice and warm and no wind so you could run and play and chase Spud as much as you like my boy. Hopefully spring has arrived at last, but having said that it hasn't really been a bad winter with many many days nice and warm, most unlike winter.

Mia was so funny last night Merlin, she had a finger up her nose (I suppose she learned that from play school), her mum told her to take her finger out, so thinking this is fun she put a finger up each nostril. I roared with laughter, so did your mum and Mike. By now Mia is laughing and her mum is getting more and more annoyed. You had to be there to see it Merlin, it was so funny, Mia is so full of mischief now. She is developing a really wonderful character, so full of fun, I couldn't have wished for a better grandchild.

I guess I had better let you go my boy so you can have some fun with your buddies, you deserve all the fun you can get.

I love you so much Merlin.

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning Merlin my sweet and wonderful big boy.

It very overcast but quite bright, not dark and dismal like it usually is when its overcast. I just looked out the window and the sun has shone through the cloud, thankfully there is no wind, just a nice soft gentle breeze so it would make a really nice run and play day for you my boy. You could run and play all day long chasing Spud without getting all hot and bothered. Last night was quite cold and as always when its cold Molly jumped up on the bed. This time she over took the lower half of my bed, I couldn't stretch out, in the end I had to push her off. At the moment she's outside playing with Spud giving as good as she gets.

Little Mia wouldn't go to sleep last night. Her mum put her to bed and went to bed herself, about half an hour later Mia came wondering into the TV room to see her Grandma, Mike and Myself, she wasn't in the least bit tired but full of beans and wide awake. We tried to tire her out because we wanted to go to bed ourselves, in the end we had to get her mum up to take charge. Oh boy what a girl. Mia is so sweet Merlin, I know for a fact that you would love her, keep her safe and protect her with your life.

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

I love you so much Merlin, always remember that.

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning Merlin my sweet and wonderful big boy.

Its quite a nice day today, there's quite a bit of cloud but the sun has broken through and its quite warm in the sun and as a bonus there is no wind, well except a gentle breeze. But having said that the weather can change in a heart beat, last night was quite warm although it had actually rained quite heavily this morning during the early hours. So I reckon it would be quite a nice run and play day for you my boy chasing Spud and teaching him a lesson which he badly needs.

It was quite funny last night, Bella licked/kissed Mia on the nose so Mia went to kiss Bella on the nose (Yea I'm surprised too). It was so funny to watch. Mia is starting to form more and more words now, I know she has said “Gandad” her form of Granddad, she's said hello and a bunch of other stuff, she really is such a sweetheart. When my work pension comes through and she gets a bit bigger I'm going to take her for ice cream every Sunday morning. It will be Granddads little treat for his precious Granddaughter. I hope she remembers me like I remember my Granddad, he was so special in my life Merlin, when he died it broke my heart. He was a wonderful man.

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

I love you Merlin and I miss you so much.

Your ever loving Daddy.
