I was listening to some Midnight Oil today. They were singing a song about white men coming and taking everything from the natives.

The irony of a bunch of white guys singing from the perspective of the natives about white guys taking everything from people of a different skin tone was not lost on me. You'd think they'd have some sort of representation on the band from the minority they are supporting.

Maybe it's just me and I don't understand the modern world.

Got this week off work, because well every year this particular week brings up bad memories. It helps being home to support Kristi and to be supported by her.

It has also given me the chance to take Ash to nursery and pick him up. He's been doing well there, so I've been picking us up ice-creams as a reward to eat as we walk home. I am convinced he isn't enjoying nursery. When we are walking to it, he goes much slower than he normally does and when I've picked him up, he runs over to get picked up by me, normally hanging onto my side which isn't how he normally likes me to pick him up. He won't let me put him down until the building is out of sight and he has a big scowl on his face.

Well, he might be moving to a different one next month anyway. We shall have to see how that goes and if it happens, if he enjoys it more than his current place. The teachers keep giving me good reports on him and his development. He does need to work on sharing, but that is something he hasn't had much chance to engage in, being an only child and not being able to socialise as much with all the Covid restrictions.

Since it is the middle of the Battle of Britain anniversary, I thought I'd post these up.





Shame these never mention the ground crew that were lost during the battle, but there you go.

Started rebuilding the Lego figures wall. I started this when Kristi first found out she was having a baby girl. I collected all the figures I could of women in different jobs as I wanted her to see every day that she could be any of these things if she wanted, or more. Itís been updated for Ash and had quite a few more random figures added over time, and knocked down a couple of times in accidents and I need to get more figures for it, but it is there.



My wallet was missing for a week or so. Tried everywhere I would normally put it, then anywhere it might occasionally be, searched all through the house and at work, asked at the local shops and whatnot. No sign of it anywhere. By a process of elimination (and a bit of luck), I found myself checking through our outside bin, where I found it lying.

I am going to put that one down to my child's habit of cleaning up. It is great when he finishes a sweet or bottle of blackcurrant juice and bins it. Not so good when he puts his dinner plate in the bin or one of his cups, or just decides to tidy up other random stuff.

Like my wallet. Figuring he put it in the bin in the mancave and when that got emptied, it wasn't noticed.

I'll be scrubbing my hands a lot tonight before they feel really clean, but at least I no longer have to go out to the bank tomorrow and report my cards missing, and pay for a new drivers license etc.

We are going to a concert in December, so I figured I'd pick up some tee shirts for the pair of us. Having a big chest, I figured I'd order myself a large mans, while I got Kristi and extra-large female one. The shirts arrived yesterday. The large man's is way too big for me (it does fit Kristi though), while the extra-large female cut would perhaps fit a skinny supermodel type, although it might be a bit too small for them.

Gave Kristi my tee-shirt. I figure my little sister who is fairly petite might fit the female one and I'll just order a medium-sized one.

Ah the joys of trying to give bands you like a little extra financial support.

Just finished my Friday night D&D session. The group split themselves up to investigate different buildings. Two of the party were attacked by a swarm of ghostly rats which drained their strength rather than doing normal damage. It was also an opponent meant to be an easy fight for an entire party. Two members of the party however is a much tougher battle. It was the parties two front-rank fighters, but the magical attack of the rats crippled their fighting ability and where we left off, one had run off while the other is down to 2 points of strength left. The rats automatically hit and do d6 points of damage, so unless they roll a one on their next attack, they will kill him.

It was nice to finish on a cliffhanger.

I have said to the player to grab me for a bit before the next game and we can roll up a backup character just in case.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
