Fathers Day 2012


On Tom's first fathers day he got a lie in (until 8am!) breakfast in bed and Wilf made him this thoughtful gift ;)
I would like to say the rest of the day was relaxing (and it was fairly) but our cat Maddie has started a dirty protest in the corner of the living room so we spent some of it searching for something to deter her and to get rid of the smell. Oh boy cat wee wee is so much worse than any smell a baby can make.
It was fairly sunny all afternoon so we all (cats included) headed into the garden to put up Wilf's new gazebo.




After that I got a little confused, I had been trying to make Tom a fathers day video (for the past two days) and I was getting beaten my IMovie every time. I'm sure its a very simple program but oh my gosh it confused me. I've never actually made a video where it had more than one piece of film (i.e adding a few bits of video together) and adding sound? Yer that took me about two hours to figure out...
So then I was making dinner and I suddenly looked at the clock and thought it was 6.30, which meant I needed to finish dinner so we could all eat together (jacket potatoes for us, butternut squash for Wilf) and bath him and put him to bed by 7.30. So all got quite stressed out and rushed around wolfing down my dinner thinking Wilf would soon get overtired and not go to sleep properly etc..anyway after dinner Tom went to garden to fix something and came back up as I was walking Wilf around the room saying 'so how come Wilf's going to bed an hour earlier today?'. I had somehow totally read the clock wrong and had rushed for no reason. But then I was really annoyed with myself for not finishing the video in time (when I could have as I had an hour longer than I thought) and there was not point not putting Wilf to bed then as I had already started to and he was tired....
So I stayed upstairs with Wilf thinking 'OK maybe tonight will be the night we try and leave him up here to sleep whilst I go downstairs for a bit'...turned out I fell asleep at 7.30 with Wilf lying across my tummy. When I woke again at 9pm I was totally ready for a good nights sleep so anyway the video didn't get finished.
But here it is!
Happy Fathers day Tom, we love you! xoxo

Hi there! I just found your blog, and already love it. The part about your cat's "dirty protest" made me laugh - cats are conniving sometimes, huh? And that movie is so so cute. I just skipped to a random part in the middle and started watching, and it's adorable.

I'm your newest follower!

Aww, such lovely gifts!
I completely lost an hour the other day too. So irritating when you realise the actual time! Baby brain and sleep deprivation has a LOT to answer for...
Lovely pics.
