Luke was SO well behaved on the plane both flying out and coming back. I felt a bit cruel on the way back. We didn't let him sleep all day, a feat that he'd achieved on his own for a few days whilst we were away. However, our flight wasn't until 20:40 and each day he'd gone without sleep, he was asleep by 20:30 latest. The bus trip to the airport from the apartments was about 40 mins and my word he struggled. His mum and I literally poked him to keep him awake. His eyes were rolling as the bus pulled into the airport.
However - once there... he found his second wind. They had a fantastic park area in the departures lounge and he loved it. Running round like a loon for ages and ages. Our flight was delayed by approx 1 hour but still Luke kept going. When we eventually got a gate, we put him in his buggy whilst we queued. Only then did he sleep - and very quickly it was, too. He slept pretty much all the way home. We were both so very very proud of him.
We got home a little before 3am on Sunday morning. I was in work on the Sunday night. Proper boooo that one. I decided that I'd stay awake and sleep Sunday afternoon before work. It didn't work. I remember it being 5:30, next thing it was 10am when Deb and Luke woke. Bugger.
We have also been for an appointment with Care at Manchester about our "free" go of IVF. As I was typing that sentence, the delivery man called with the drugs. Weird. Weird again is that Deb just rang! Spooky shit man.
Oh - bought a PSP this week. 2nd hand one from Game in Wigan. £59.99! Bargain if ever there was one. Got a free copy of Gran Turisimo thrown in, too. Very very pleased with that indeed. They tried to flog me a 2nd hand 2gb memory card for it for £14.99 but I resisted. Found a new 4gb one on play for £13.89. Just need a case for it now - might have a lookski on ebay when I'm done blogging at y'z.
I am missing my children loads. I'm going to be seeing them next weekend but It has been so bloody long since they were last here, it's horrible. Very.
I am really looking forward to Christmas this year. I'm not normally one for Christmas and all that, but Christmas is being held in our household this year. At least the Christmas meal side of it is. I am both very very scared and excited. See, I'm not a chef. Not by a long way, but I volunteered my chef-ing, so we'll see how it goes. I'm confident I won't poison anyone, but they may not entirely enjoy the food that I present to them.
My beautiful wife had an excellent idea for a starter - Cup-A-Soup (Royle Family inspired). We'll see.
Luke's getting really good with wee-ing in his potty at the moment. The last few evenings, he's been running round nappy-less and whenever he's needed a wee - off he goes to his potty and does it. We've even had 2 number 2's in there too! Well done, son!
Riiiiight - I think my work here is done. I will try so hard not to leave it so long next time.
Buene Suerte y adios!!
