Fine weekend

The weekend was fine. Fine, fine, fine.

Saturday, Noah and Leo attended an army-themed birthday party (which offended Clara's progressive sensibilities but allowed Noah to dress in camo gear). I got to stay home and enjoy 2 golden hours of me time. Rainbow Six: Siege, mostly. A Morrisons grocery shopping trip in the afternoon and an episode of season 2 of Stranger Things in the evening.



Sunday, Clara worked a late shift. It was cold and wet so I decided to spend the day at home. I allowed Noah to play some Bastion while I cleaned out the fridge. Leo watched Pepper Pig on my tablet. It's nice to have days at home. I can only think of a handful of weekends where I've not taken the boys somewhere -- to the city for a walk around, or to a soft play centre. Going out is great but it's when you do it week after week, with never a day of rest it can really wear you out. We did go for a quick walk in the mid-afternoon and then we had dinner at my mum's.

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 caus

Sky drama

  We experienced a temperature delta of greater than 20 degrees over the last few days. Here is the angry sky during the current temperature valley. Those vertical plumes above the distant hill are sleet/hale showers falling from the  cumulonimbus monster.

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.
