Kid's birthday today, they're both 12.
So it's presents and good moods all round, lots of sweets, ice cream, jelly, sugar tantrums, tears, thrown teddies and a round of vomit to finish off the day… and that's just me!
This fathering lark is harder than you think.
Whatever, like Gloria said,
"First I was afraid, I was petrified. Kept thinking I could never live without you by my side. But I spent so many nights, thinking how you did me wrong, I grew strong, I learned how to carry on. And so you're back from outer space. I just walked in to find you here with that sad look upon your face. I should have changed my stupid lock, I should have made you leave your key. If I had known for just one second you'd be back to bother me! Go on now go, walk out the door. Just turn around now, 'cause you're not welcome anymore. Weren't you the one who tried to hurt me with goodbye; you think I'd crumble, you think I'd lay down and die. Oh no, not I, I will survive, as long as i know how to love I know I will stay alive. I've got all my life to live, I've got all my love to give and I'll survive, I will survive. It took all the strength I had not to fall apart, kept trying hard to mend the pieces of my broken heart. And I spent oh so many nights just feeling sorry for myself, I used to cry. Now I hold my head up high and you see me, somebody new. I'm not that chained up little person still in love with you, and so you felt like dropping in and just expect me to be free now. I'm saving all my lovingfor someone who's loving me."
Deep lyrics… very deep… Not sure what it's got to do with being a Dad but, hey, it's my Blog, right?
I can do what I want, right?
Don't ask me why but I'm in a bloody great mood.
Have a good one,
