My sweet and wonderful big boy Merlin

Good afternoon my sweet gentle giant.

Its a lovely day today, a bit cloudy, a slight breeze and very warm. The weather forecast says its going to rain, but so far its held off, it would actually make a good run and play day for you my boy as long as you drank lots of water.

I had a bit of a busy morning today, drove almost into Cape Town to the cash and carry, had breakfast, topped off with diesel and now back home. I must admit I now feel a bit tired. Sadly I can't do what I use to do, driving 18 to 20 hours in one go, now after three or four hours I feel tired. I might take a nap later.

Mia still isn't well. Her idiot dad is here with her, he's taken the day off to look after her. He did say that she has been sleeping most of the morning, which is what she needs right now. Spud has been acting oddly, usually he runs away from Mia, but now he looks worried that Mia isn't very well and keeps going up to her to make sure that she is OK.

Molly hasn't left my side since I came home. She a strange little girl, she always wants to be around people. She really is a sweet heart Merlin.

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.

Your ever loving Daddy.

 

I love and miss you so much Merlin and I always will

Good morning Merlin my sweet gentle giant.

It looks like a glorious day today, nice and bright and sunny, no wind and nice and warm. Its really beautiful outside. It would make a really good run and play day for you my boy if you were here.

This morning I'm quite busy, I have to leave in a little while to run quite a lot of errands in town. Your mum is at home with Mia as she is really sick this morning, the doctor said she has baby measles and croup. She really looks unwell, poor little mite it breaks my heart to see her like this. I really hope she gets better soonest. At least I don't have to rush back home to let the pack out, your mum can do that while I am in town, so I can take my time.

As I am in town I might even go to the mall and have some breakfast, or maybe lunch depending on what time I have finished my errands. Its amazing, some days I am struggling to find things to do and days like today I've got so much to do. Oh well never mind.

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

Never forget just how much I love and miss you my sweetest boy.

Your ever loving Daddy.

 

Good morning my sweet and wonderful big boy.

Good morning Merlin my sweet boy.

Its quite a nice day today, nice and bright and sunny, there is a bit of a strong breeze, and quite chilly in the wind. It might warm up later on. It would make a good run and play day for you my boy if you were here, you could run and chase Spud all that you liked.

My granddaughter Mia isn't very well. All over the weekend she has been sick and she has a temperature, so this morning she is going to the doctor. Poor little mite I feel really sorry for her. Her idiot dad on Saturday morning cooked her some French Fries, then gave her a bar of chocolate. Guess what happened? Yep she threw up all over the place. That man has got the sense of a chocolate frog. Every week I dislike the man more and more, I think he knows I don't like him as he keeps well out of my way.

I doubt if I will be going anywhere today unless I am needed to take Mia to the doctor. I've got some shopping to do on Wednesday and do a bit of banking so I might go the mall and have my usual breakfast. Talking of breakfast I'm getting hungry, but I'll wait for lunch time to have something to eat.

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

I think of you every day my boy and think about the fun we use to have, I love and miss you so much.

Your ever loving Daddy.

 

Good morning my sweet and wonderful big boy Merlin.

Good morning Merlin my sweet gentle giant.

Its a really beautiful day today, nice and bright and sunny, a slight breeze and not too hot. Its still early so it might get hotter later on. At the moment however, it would make a good run and play day for you my boy. I'm not going anywhere today, I've got a few things I need to sort out at home, I need to hose down my Chevy, its covered in mud so I had better get the pressure washer going later on.

Mia wasn't too well this morning, she was throwing up and she has a temperature, but then she brightened up quite a bit singing nursery rhymes. But to be safe she has to go to the doctor tomorrow morning. Come to that I need to see the doctor, I might need a change in medication for my diabetes because when I checked my sugar level this morning it was very high. I took some medication and checked about an hour later and the sugar level had dropped.

I'm quite hungry this morning, I'm almost tempted to go out for breakfast. I hate cooking, because by the time I'm done cooking I don't feel like eating what I have cooked.

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

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

Your ever loving Daddy.

 

I love and miss you so much Merlin.

Good morning Merlin my sweet gentle giant.

Its a very hot day today my boy. There's not a cloud in the sky and a very gentle breeze. It would make a good run and play day as long as you drank lots of water and kept an eye out for snakes.

I've just come back from the mall after doing some shopping and having breakfast. I got in my Chevy and turned on the air conditioning, when I got home and climbed out of my nice cool truck it was like walking into an oven. At the moment I've got the fan on my desk going full blast which does help. On the free-way home I saw that the police are out with their speed camera's, just as well I wasn't speeding. I guess the police are out to get their Christmas bonus's by topping up the city coffers with traffic fines.

Molly is laying beside me, I suppose its too hot outside for her to run around. Later on I'll sit outside on the bench and chill out for a little while. Its actually too nice outside to sit indoors.

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

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

Your ever loving Daddy.

 

I love and miss you so much Merlin.

Good morning Merlin my sweetest gentle giant.

Its a very bright and sunny day today, but windy and quite chilly. Last night and this morning were quite cold, but hopefully it might warm up later. Although it would make a really nice run and play day for you my boy.

Mia wasn't dressed this morning so I asked her mum why not, apparently the school is having a pj day today. That sounds a bit daft to me, but there you go. At least Mia was in a good mood this morning when she went to school, she even waved goodbye to me as she left. Most mornings she's annoyed with me as I tell her to stop misbehaving and go to school.

I let the pack out this morning, Molly and Spud played for five minutes then barked to come inside. Perhaps it was too windy for them. Spud ran in and jumped up on my bed and began to go to sleep, Molly is looking for somewhere to lay down so she can go to sleep. I must admit went back to sleep for a couple of hours this morning and felt a lot better for it as I didn't get much sleep last night.

I doubt if I'll be going anywhere today, well that's what I am thinking at the moment. I might change my mind later on.

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

I love and miss you so much my sweet boy.

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning Merlin my sweet boy.

Its not a very nice day today, its very overcast and extremely cold. The weather can't make its mind up, we have had a few very hot days and now its freezing. Yesterday evening we had a power cut for about 4 or 5 hours, I was eating my dinner in the dark! I wouldn't mind but we had a power cut last Sunday late afternoon. Typical Africa, they couldn't organise a bun fight in a bakery. Anyway it would make a good run and play day if you were here my sweet boy.

Mia was behaving herself this morning thankfully, but last night she wilfully disobeyed your mum so I stepped in and made her do as she was told. As I have said many times, I will not take her nonsense, she does as she is told when she is told.

Mike my son is looking at buying a car in UK, he's been finding out the costs such as insurance and road tax. Quite frankly its horrendous I know people earn more money in UK then here, but its still very expensive. My pensions wouldn't go very far in UK, at least with the exchange rate of the South African Rand and the British Pound I can live quite comfortably and afford to run a SUV.

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

Never forget the love I have for you Merlin, and never forget that I miss you with all of my heart.

Your ever loving Daddy.

 

Good morning my sweet and wonderful big boy Merlin.

Good morning my sweet gentle giant.

Its a bit of an overcast day today, but I think it will clear up later on. It would make a very good run and play day for you my boy, you could annoy Spud as much as you liked.

Yesterday started off not a very nice day, then just after noon it became nice and clear and sunny and very warm. I drove into town did some banking and shopping and went back home. By the way the dogs reacted you'd think I had been away for years instead of two or three hours. Molly jumped up and drew blood out of my arm getting over excited. Although it did hurt I was so pleased that she was so happy to see me. She can be such a sweet little girl.

Mia misbehaved this morning, her Nana called her to go to play school, Mia ignored her. So I told her “Mia got to school!” She totally ignored me, so I got up and quite firmly said “Go to school Mia.” She started whining which did not impress me whatsoever, she refused to say goodbye to me. I will not pander to her whatsoever, as far as I am concerned she does what she's told when she's told.

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

I do love and miss you so much Merlin, my big boy.

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning Merlin my sweet gentle giant.

Its not a very nice day today, its very overcast, it had been raining earlier so its quite cool, but thankfully not cold, another bonus the wind has dropped. It would make a good run and play day for you my boy. Spud is now sitting on the little hill near the fence where you use to sit, in some ways he does remind me of you, but he doesn't have the presence you had. When you sat there people took notice as they went past, you always looked so commanding sitting there. My perfect big boy.

Mia was whining when she got up this morning, she didn't want her mum, she wanted her Nana, then she quietened down and began to behave and play.

As its not a very nice day I doubt that I'll be going anywhere, its a stay at home kind of day. I do need to go into town to do some shopping, but I'll wait, maybe it will clear up later on, but I wont hold my breath. Although it does look like summer is here at long last.

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

I love and miss you more then I can ever tell you my boy.

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning Merlin my sweet gentle giant.

Its another beautiful day today, nice and bright and sunny, no wind and quite warm. Last night was quite hot. I was glad to take Mia's dad home so I could turn on the air conditioning in my Chevy and cool down a bit. We had a power cut for about 4 hours so I couldn't use the fan to help cool off, but amazingly the heat didn't wake me up last night, I woke up quite refreshed this morning.

Mia would not go to bed last night, she didn't get to bed till around 10 pm. Your mum was trying to reason with Mia to go to bed which she ignored. In the end I had to be the ogre and told her “GO TO BED MIA, NOW!!!” She grizzled a bit but finally off she went. Amazingly she wasn't in a bad mood this morning after going to bed so late, she went to play school quite happily, even saying “Bye Bye Granddad,” and waving goodbye.

Mia's dad is as I mentioned a total idiot, he knows I don't like him and every so often I catch him looking at me sideways, when I look back he looks away. Very strange person and very dislikeable.

Well my boy its that time again, time to go play with your buddies.

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

Your ever loving Daddy.
