Sam’s birthday today, he’s now 9. It’s unbelievable, much as all other parents say when they look back at how far they have come with their kids.
I can’t really remember what it was like before he or Holly arrived but now to see the little baby I held in my arms one day in Richmond, now a strapping 9 year old boy, well, time flies, does’nt it.
He got amongst other things, a boat, inflatable from me and Leigh, some camping bits and bobs from Holly, an Arsenal ’06 shirt from his Nan, a new pocket knife from his other nan and grandad and a Spiderman book from one of his uncles, (which I have to say his father has had a real good look through!).
We’re off to the pool for his party, let someone else entertain them this year.
Samuel and a couple of his mates are starting a band. None of them can play yet, but isn’t that how all the best bands got going?
We’ve got the last scout camp coming up, which we’re all going to, lets’ hope for good weather. The sun has been shining long into the night the last couple of weeks, hitting maximum temperatures of 32 degrees! (Yes, Mike from Leeds, we are in Canada, and no it doesn’t snow all the time!!)
There are a couple of other projects in the pipeline, one of which is the music studio is finally up and running. Talk of an album, recorded between Canada and Brighton, UK are underway. More news and downloads when they are ready.
So, until more news presents itself, keep the mail coming in, I am gradually answering all your questions.
We’ve just been having a look at the bald eagles via Doug’s site only to learn that sadly the eggs never hatched.
