How nice to be an innocent.



Now we see why the business had to be sold. He had important stuff to do.

I've been accepted for an in-training period with a 1,000 Euro grant per month with the Maltese language department of Directorate General for Translation of the European Commission.

This made me happy.

Yeah nice one Dev.

There's a guy that I see on the way to work each morning, sprinting for the bus, who never fails to put a smile on my face. He reminds me of myself when I was in my late teens/early twenties. Happy to run for the bus if it meant an extra 3 minutes in bed . Fair play to him, he's got the timing spot on because I've never seen him miss it.

Had some spare time before work today so managed to see Beasts of the Southern Wild and then happened upon a food market in town so had a kangaroo burger and some Dutch pancakes. Damn tasty.

My dad made me laugh several times this morning while we were out shopping. Proper big belly laughs. I absolutely love his sense of humour, he's got such quick wit.

Also a friend of my text to tell me she's pregnant. It's the first of any of my close friends to get pregnant so it's very exciting. We've known each other since Primary 1.... It's funny to remember how we used to go round to each others houses after swimming on a Friday after school and have hotdog and chips all the time. And now she'll have a little one of her own soon to do that with their friends.

Nice news about your friend, Sway.

When it was Jr's birthday last weekend, my two best friends were there with their little girls (one is only 2 months old and the other turns two this weekend) and that was a pretty sweet moment for all of us.

Next to Grey's Monument? I disgraced myself by having four pancakes there on wednesday. Before tea. Screw you, mam.

Yeah, that's the one. Pretty good but it moves on the 1st, so not sure if I'll get the chance to return for more food.

Class, I thought it finished earlier than that - I'll be in town about half a dozen times between now and then.
Every time it comes I intend to have a look round for some nice dried fruit, herbs, spices, exotic oils and stuff but the only things I've ever bought are burgers, noodles, pies, pancakes and waffles.

The front door to our flat building was vandalised recently and the bottom glass panel kicked in. We've had a replacement wooden board in its place for the past couple of weeks. Somebody has come round just now to replace the glass so I text my flatmate to let him know, since he actually owns this flat.

He replied with, 'That's good news'. So I text back saying, 'It's stained glass.' And he replied, 'Not it's not stop lying or you'll go to hell.'

For some reason that really made me laugh as it made it sound like I make a habit of lying to him. And it was such an over the top reaction to my message. Obviously he was joking, but I can't stop laughing.

Mmmmmm. Want to go back to Amsterdam for these - the ones they cook with bacon in the pan, and those lovely little ones they serve for breakfast with syrup. First time I went into a Dutch supermarket was trying to find packs of these before heading home!

Mentioned this before, but when Jr was diagnosed with autism, the doctor said he would probably struggle to make friends once he started school which pretty much broke my heart.

Anyway, a speech and language specialist observed him the other day and wrote in his report that he plays normally and if one of the other children wanders off to play with something else, Jr will often follow them and ask if they'll keep playing with him.

And when I picked him up on Friday, he was a bit teary. When I asked him why, he said it was because one of the other boys wouldn't line up next to him to come home (his mother was going to be late in picking him up). Anyway, I cheered him up, took him home and when we were messing around later he started 'shooting' me with his fingers with all the 'pew! pew! noises that boys make at that age. It's not a game we've ever played before, so I asked him where he got it from and he smiled and said, "It's the game I play with Finn."


All stuff that's fairly small-scale and indeed, pretty normal and insignificant for other kids of that age, but stuff that I didn't ever think I'd see. So that made me smile.




But then, I took him into town on the bus over the weekend and after I sat him down on the seat he decided to announce, "Daddy, my willy's got stuck." So, you know, swings and roundabouts.

That's brilliant Matt .

How old is your youngling btw? My son will be 4 in January and he's absolutely obsessed with his "willy". If he's not playing with it he's talking about it and if not then he's more than probably thinking about it .

Aint that always the way?

Seriously though that's good news, glad he's getting along better than you'd expected. I'm certainly no expert on the matter, but perhaps the doctor was giving you the worst case scenario as autism probably affects different kids' developments in different ways? I'm just speculating here.

Definitely good news though.

Cheers, Harry, Sway.

He's just turned five, so yeah, I think it's definitely an age thing. And he does have a habit of playing with it when he's sat down and just watching the TV or something and then turning me with a slightly concerned look on his face, "Daddy, my willy's getting big."

I don't know, it's possible that that's the way the doctor was thinking. He was a nice guy, but also a specialist for the entire region, so I get the impression that he probably didn't have the time to go through all the possibilities of how it may or may not affect him. So the worst case scenario might be his default setting, yeah.

If anyone finds themselves in Wells Next The Sea in Norfolk there is an old sailing barge (Albatros) near the Quay which has been converted to a restaurant (summer season mostly) which does a nice turn in Dutch pancakes.

My wee girl is 4 in January and she better not even know what one is until she's about 30. And that's only if she becomes a doctor or something.

I remember my oldest niece hitting an age where she was becoming a bit more aware about the idea of death. My sis-in-law says she seemed to be a bit obsessed with it, talking about it or asking about it a lot.

Anyway we were on a flight over to Singapore and my niece was in the seat next to me. I remember really clearly her pausing her game of Super Mario on the screen to turn and ask me, 'Are we all going to die?'

I am absolutely shit scared of flying. I had to get valium before that flight and I ended up dropping 2 clothes sizes because I'd stopped eating, so you can imagine my face when she asked me that half way into a 13 hour flight!

You know what, I think you're absolutely right.

I think it would be interesting to actually introduce him to someone who didn't know about his diagnosis, just to see what they think of him.

Got a call from the hospital today and I have an appointment on Friday afternoon. So fucking relieved and happy, especially after feeling so crap yesterday at the thought of waiting for 3 months just to be seen again. They obviously consider my case 'urgent'.

I know! I'm possibly being over optimistic here, but I'm really hoping I might get an op before Christmas.
