Good morning Merlin my sweet gentle giant.

Its another very overcast day today, its quite warm and thankfully no high winds, just a fairly gentle breeze. It would make a good run and play day if you were here my boy, you could chase Spud all that you wanted to and maybe teach him a few manners. The sky has suddenly turned very dark, we could be in for a storm this morning.

Mia is in a good mood so far this morning, she is actually behaving. Last night I was highly honoured, she actually chose to sit with me before dinner, she usually plays or does her own thing, I was most surprised. She left for play school just now and said “Bye bye Granddad, love you.” At times she can be so sweet, yet others times she can be hell on two legs.

I'm not going anywhere today as I've got everything I need, although I will be going shopping on Saturday morning after my usual breakfast at the mall. I'm looking for a birthday present for your mum, I think I know what to get her, I just hope they have got what I want in stock or at least order it quite quickly.

I'd better go my boy, I don't want to be on line while there is a storm.

Remember just how much I love and miss you.

Your ever loving Daddy.

 

Good morning my sweet and wonderful big boy.

Good morning Merlin my sweet gentle giant.

Its a very dull overcast day today, thankfully there's no wind and its quite warm. It could make a good run and play day for you if you were here with me.

This morning I had to go into town to get some shopping, along the road traffic cops were pulling people over checking drivers licences and out standing warrants. They did even bother looking at me I just drove past, did my shopping and came back home.

Mia REALLY threw a tantrum last night, she was almost hysterical. Melissa wanted her to go in the bath and Mia didn't want to. In the end it became a battle of the wills. I would have put her in the bath despite her tantrums, she wouldn't beat me.

When Mia's dad come for the weekend he just helps himself in the fridge or freezer. I had something saved for my breakfast on Monday and found they had been eaten by him. I was furious. This time I've marked the packets and basically said “Leave alone.” I wouldn't mind if he bought something, but he doesn't, he expects us to feed him for free. I am really getting fed up with him to be honest, I can see me banning him from coming here.

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

Never forget just how much I love you my boy.

Your ever loving Daddy.

 

Good morning my sweet and wonderful big boy Merlin.

Good morning Merlin my sweet gentle giant.

Its another beautiful day, nice and bright and sunny, a gentle breeze and nice and warm. If you were here my boy it would make a really nice run and play day for you.

The Cape Coloureds are still rioting in the village, for what reason I have no idea. Its causing problems for people going to work or school and then coming home at night. Yesterday they set fire to the bush along side the road in the back way, trying to stop residence and school children being able to get home, thankfully the fire fighters put it out. Yet when they want something they come to us for help. They wont be getting any help from me, I hope other residents think the same.

Mia is quite well now, even the doctor was worried when he saw her the first time which was why he sent her for blood tests. A day later he phoned the house to find out how she was. If she wasn't improving he was thinking of admitting her to hospital. Thankfully she was improving.

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

Never forget how much I love and miss you Merlin.

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning Merlin my sweet gentle giant.

Its quite overcast today, but thankfully the high winds have dropped. Its still quite nice outside, its not too hot. It would make a good run and play day if you were here my boy.

Mia has gone back to play school today thankfully, now I've got the house to myself all day. As I was driving my Chevy a lot the past couple of weeks I was starting to get fed up with it, going backwards and forwards into town or three times a day was getting boring, now my Chevy can hopefully be parked up until the end of this week, besides which I was going through diesel like it was going out of fashion.

There's another riot in the village this morning, the Cape Coloureds have blocked off the main road toy toying, thankfully we have a back way we can use thereby totally avoiding the village.

Well 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 Merlin, please never forget that OK?

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning Merlin my sweet gentle giant.

Its another bright and sunny day, quite warm but still very windy. I keep forgetting to check the weather forecast to check how long we have to put up with these high winds. When I let the dogs out they either come running back indoors or they find somewhere out of the wind to chill out or play. I think it might make a good run and play day for you my boy.

Mia is a lot better now, hopefully she will be going back to play school tomorrow and I can get my peace and quiet back during the day. I do love her very much, but I also love my peace and quiet.

I was talking to Mike my son yesterday, he said he might be coming back here for a holiday next year. I hope so because I miss the lad big time. The problem will be is when he flies back to UK, we're going to start missing him all over again. I don't know how much time I've got left in this world, so I would like to see him again at least once before I die. I'm not being morbid Merlin, just facing facts. I wonder if Mia will remember him, because he was always playing with her. I hope she hasn't forgotten him. It looks like he's found the love of his life, a really lovely young lady and so pretty. I really hope she's the one.

Anyway 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, the best friend I ever had.

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning Merlin my sweet gentle giant.

Its another beautiful day, nice and bright and sunny and warm, but the high winds are ruining it. The high winds are so strong they take my breath away, literally. The dogs won't stay outside, they are all inside at the moment, with Molly laying beside my chair.

Mia is a lot better this morning, she seems far happier then she has been for the past two weeks, thank goodness.

I just got back home from the mall where I have my usual Saturday morning treat of a nice breakfast. I could cook my own breakfast, it would be far cheaper but its nice to let someone else do the cooking and be waited on.

I was going to wash the dust off my Chevy with the pressure washer, but in this wind I'm the one that gets washed and not the truck. I have no idea how much longer we will have these high winds, I need to check the weather forecast.

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

You know how much I love and miss you Merlin?

Your ever loving Daddy.

Mia is a lot better now thank goodness, but her idiot dad is coming later on today. He doesn't talk to me, he keeps well out of my way. I didn't like him the first time I met him and as time has gone past I like him even less. I am absolutely surprised that my son Mike actually thought he was a nice person. In all honesty he's a nasty piece of work. If I had my way he wouldn't set foot inside this house.

I've got some more errands to run sometime today, I'm waiting on a phone call. I really don't like hanging around waiting for someone to call. I like arrangements set in stone so I know what I am doing and when I am doing it.

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

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

Your ever loving Daddy.

 

I love and miss you so much Merlin.

Good evening Merlin my sweet gentle giant.

I'm sorry I am very late today, I had to into town this morning, I got back quite late and after lunch I fell asleep, then I had to go into town again this afternoon and by the time I had finished I feel asleep again for a little while. Melissa broke one of the appliances for her little sandwich shop, so Daddy steps up to the plate yet again and buys a new one for her. Anyway I am here now my boy albeit a little tired.

Mia is a lot better today but still not 100% so your mum has been home with her. I'm looking forward to Mia going back to play school so I can get my peace and quiet back during the day.

Its been very warm today, I have been so glad of the air-conditioning in my Chevy, its also extremely windy this evening but hopefully it will die down soon.

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

I love and miss you so much Merlin.

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning Merlin my sweet gentle giant.

It was really nasty first thing this morning, very misty and foggy, but now its cleared its nice and bright and sunny. A really nice day. It would make a really nice run and play day for you my boy.

Mia is thankfully a lot brighter this morning, but she's not ready for play school yet as she's not quite 100%. Your mum has taken her to the shops this morning just to get her out of the house, which has saved me a job this morning having to do some more errands in town. My Chevy has been into town that often the past week I reckon it could find its own way there.

I must admit I feel a little bit hungry this morning, I'll have to think as to what I am going to have for lunch, at the moment I have no idea, I'll have to look and see what's in the fridge and pantry.

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 just how much I love you and miss you.

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning Merlin my sweet gentle giant.

Its another bright and sunny day, quite warm but we still have high winds, which have been brutal at times, but it would still make a good run and play day for you my boy.

Mia is still unwell, but she is getting better slowly but surely. I don't think she is fit enough to go to play school yet so I assume that your mum will stay home with her today. That means I will have to go into town yet again to run some errands for your mum and then again later on this afternoon. My Chevy sure is getting a bit of a workout. I can't even begin to tell you how nice it is having transport again. Before I got my Chevy I was trapped here, I couldn't even get some milk or whatever if I ran out. Now I can go where I please when I please, its a good feeling.

Early next year if all goes well I want to go to the ADDO elephant reserve for a short break. Its been more then 10 years since I was there last and from what I hear its changed a lot. I am really looking forward to it.

Now that the weather has warmed up dangerous snakes are waking up again, we have to be so careful watching out so that Mia or any of the dogs get bitten. I really don't like snakes at all. Most snakes will try and keep out of the way, but the puff adder wont, it strikes at the slight provocation which is why they are extremely dangerous.

Anyway my boy, its that time again, time to go play some more with your buddies.

I always love and miss you my sweet boy.

Your ever loving Daddy.
