Weekend on daddy duty

Nice weekend, looking after the boys as Clara worked an early shift on Saturday and a long day on Sunday.

Saturday: Soft play at Hillsborough, followed by lunch at Mcdonalds and a quick scoot around Morrisons for dinner ingredients. We then went to Grandma's for an hour. I made Spaghetti Bolognese for dinner.

More sketches for the Terran Republic
Evening: The Division with the team and some Ghost Recon: Wildlands.



Sunday:Endcliffe Park, Brunch in the cafe. Best bacon, sausage and tomato sandwich ever made. In fact, they should build a statue of the sandwich to commemorate the event.



We then took a bus to the city centre for the usual walked around/ playing in the Winter garden and Peace garden.


Evening: Yet more sketches for the Terran Republic. Then, more time in the Division and some more Ghost Recon: Wildlands.

Saturday:

Sunday:
Clara took Noah to George's birthday party, at Castaway Cove. I took Leo to the swimming baths, which he barely tolerated. Leo: "Don't like! Don't LIKE!"

Sketches:
I completed another round of ship drawings, deciding on the depiction of the Andrew Bolton-class Cruiser, along with its Gordon-class sloops.






March end

At home: Clara working a late shift, back just in time for the boys' bedtime. We discussed the possibility that she might end up looking after the poor wretch who jumped from the Sheffield's main tram bridge, on Wednesday evening -- although she'd never acknowledge or discuss the matter if she did. I picked the boys up at 12:40 and took them to Hillsborough Park, which is just possibly becoming less of a pain. Looking after two boys with differing play interests is hard when you're an unapologetic helicopter parent who must hover close by at all times.

Work: About a week until release. Working through the last few tasks. Pressure pretty low, although beyond the specific tasks of the release there are a lot of things that need fixing or improving within the docs. Still, the new User Guide is a big improvement in terms of usability.

Reading: Re-reading Chuck Gannon's Fire with Fire, rushing through with an eye for details concerning ships and technology. I'm planni…
