Househusband... [May. 23rd, 2008|10:41 am]
The Love Bug
[Current Mood |goodgood]

I’m playing househusband today. I’ve got the day off work so that Caroline can get some extra hours in at her work. So, I have the kids for the whole day!

The day started well: I was up at 0700 - showered and dressed; kids downstairs by 0745; washed up, sterilised bottles, put drying on, put next load of washing on; dressed both kids; gave both kids their milk; Caroline left for work at 0845; Cara fell asleep just as I brought her breakfast in, but Amy had hers.

The day continues not so well: Amy filled her nappy, so I need to go rectify that.

Nice to see a proper post and not twitter :p

Feels like your reading past conversations when you post those, for example your last post looks like a mish mash of part conversations, can you tell I'm not a fan of twitters? :p

Enjoy the day with the kids, I'll leave you to clear your daughters nappy :p

I'm not a twitter fan either, I tend to skip past them as they just seem to be half convos for other people so scroll is my friend when people post twitters! :P

Well, I've now disabled the posting of Twitter replies to other Twitter users, so that should hopefully make things easier :o)

Thing is, Twitter is great on two parts: first, it allows you to quickly post very short entries - "microblogging" as it's known; second, it allows quick and easy interaction between Twitter users.

I (and a number of other people on LJ) use LoudTwitter to post Twitter entries to LJ once a day, but I agree that it must be confusing to see the @replies that I send to other people, hence me turning those off now.

Dont get me wrong, it's good to see updates from you, but I find them quite confusing sometimes.

From what I remember of Derren Brown, I cannot see any resemblance between him and me whatsoever!

Sorry if we abandoned you last night, the Gizmo conference went to crap so Darren called me directly. I think the one-to-one call quality on Gizmo is better than that on Skype (although Darren disagrees), but Skype definitely wins on conference calling. Be good to do that again though.

Thanks babe... it's going really well so far. Cara has napped twice so far today, once after breakfast for about 45 minutes, and she's been asleep for the last 45 minutes too!

We're going to head down to your Mums in about half an hour, and Amy will ride on the Buggy Board! :o)
