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.

After rushing to build these Kalax Shelving units, we celebrated by having a night out -- after settling to boys down at my mum's. We had a fantastic meal at Lokanta, a Turkish restaurant in Broomhill.

For the first time ever, I started my Christmas shopping in November, although that didn't stop me from waiting until the day before the work party to by my secret Santa gift.

The promise of a return
Tabletop Role Playing Games!



I bought a game big game book, based on a long-time love of the work of artist Simon Stalenhag, who inspired many with his paintings of the rural Sweden of his childhood, chock full of giant robots and rusting futuristic metal hulks. Tales from the Loop is an old-school table-top role-playing game, in which you play young teens who solve mysteries in an alternate history 1980s where certain technologies blossomed, giving the world fusion, giant robots and mysterious particle accelerators which appears to be causing strange things to happen in the PC…

The joy of tents

The boys get their first taste of camping in a tent. We stayed at Green Acres near Edale. We had a fantastic time, although I had to tell the boys to stop being noisy about 11 hundred times.
