Chapter 53: A long time

Good actual evening!

It’s been awhile since I last posted… Months in fact. I’ve spent about 8 weeks trying to convince myself to write about anything but there has been zero motivation. Well, I’m here now so let’s see how things go eh?

Since the start of the lockdown here in good old England, I’ve had about 4 weeks off due to COVID-19. My wife and I have had a mixture of the symptoms but thankfully nothing serious. We have both recovered and healthy. My kids haven’t shown any of the symptoms either which I feel extremely lucky for.

I have had another 2 weeks off of work thanks to a tooth abscess but I’m returning back to work tomorrow. It feels like I wasted all of this time off though. There are a bucket load of photos and videos online of families building sheds or wendy houses and all I’ve done is lounge around.

I spent almost every day looking after my kids but I feel that I didn’t spend enough time with them. I didn’t spend enough time writing or streaming or podcasting. I hate my laziness. I’m really going to push harder to spend time with them and be more productive. I guess only time will tell.

Yours dejectedly,

Some Hero Dad

Chapter 52: A week in review

It’s been about a week since I last posted, maybe more? Actually yes more. So what’s happened?

Wednesday was my daughters birthday! She is officially 4! She was so excited about going to school with goodie bags for all the other kids. Even on the way into the school, she was telling everyone it was her birthday with a massive grin on her face.

As typical with children she was more interested in the box some of her presents came in than her actual gifts. But now, a few days later, she spends a lot of time playing with all of her toys. Some of them even recently had a wedding.

Saturday was the birthday party, where a lot of my wife’s family travelled down from London and my daughter was in the limelight once again. Not that that’s bad at a party for her but… She can get rather loud and “shows off her dance moves” whenever she can.

I really love my kids and seeing the awesome, funny person my daughter has turned into make me feel proud. Now it’s time to see how my son turns out!
