Father and son


Fathers' Day.

Felt really worn from a week at work and looking after the boy for the whole of Saturday. Neither I nor the boy got enough sleep again and so were cranky as a result.

He went to the market with Mummy but not for long. So, only had time for bath before they returned. Wife had kindly done my ironing and bought a present. The boy had decorated the card.

Spent the day quietly, as the boy was more clearly under the weather from his infection. Temperature going up and down but nothing serious yet. Had to make another train trip to the hospital for his antibiotic. He loved the journey but unhappy to leave the train. We spent a while on the railway bridge so he could watch trains coming in and out. Have promised him another trip this week (he needs a check-up at the end of the week).

All in all a strangely tiring weekend. But at least things with the wife are improving. And so to bed.

I'm real sorry to hear that the past week has been a particularly tough one to deal with.

I'm amazed that you have the energy to share your thoughts with us in such a frank and honest way.
