9 Years, 8 Months, 4 Weeks & 1 Day into Daddyhood




N.E.R.D: “Lapdance”

Arctic Monkeys: “I Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor.”

Janelle Monáe: “Make Me Feel” – very like Prince: “Kiss.”

What was the song before Friendly Fires: “Love Like Waves” at 1140ish on Radio 1? Tweeted 13.4.18_1730h!

And at 1535h… Puddletown!



“LogCheese,” said T.

Stuck on 37! (in the four 4s challenge)


“Nose cloths” (said T)… etc.

Mummy said (randomly), “Stop the horses!” – then two horse transportation vehicles appeared! It’s a sign! Also… “Hay Straw” or “Straw Hay” – it’s a sign!

(PS. What is the difference between straw & hay…?)


Franz Ferdinand: “Take Me Out.”

Adamski/Seal: “Killer.”


1155h… Affpuddle!



I don’t like using dishwashers.

Four 4s challenge: got 37 + 38 last night… now stuck on 39!

For some reason this song came into my head: Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five: “White Lines.”

Playing air hockey with Uncle Colin is lethal!



On the junction heading to Puddletown… there was a big puddle!

Clara Amfo plays girly songs.

1053h… Eype!

I can’t decide who’s “music” I dislike more: Sean Paul or Drake.



Four 4s challenge: 39 + 40! 41 pending… (My dad got 71!)

Thinking about negative powers:

2^-1 = 1/2

2^-2 = 1/4

2^-3 = 1/8

2^-4 = 1/16

… etc.

Mid-pm: watching 80s Family Fortunes on ‘Challenge’ – the hair, the jumpers, the moustaches! And Les Dennis…

The beginning of ‘Larry and Mick go to Puddletown.’

‘Mr and Mrs Nose’ by T.

‘Oscar the Obvious Octopus’ – a family collaboration!



A proper sunny beach day! 😃

On way to Devon Cliffs entertainment: text… nails… banana… hand cream.



Need CDs of lively music for car journeys!: Chemical Brothers, Arctic Monkeys, Franz Ferdinand, The Killers…

(1D: “Drag Me Down.”)

… Dandy Warhols, Muse, SL2, The Streets…

… etc.

Shawn Mendes’ “In My Blood” is an anthem for anxiety etc… (https://genius.com/Shawn-mendes-in-my-blood-lyrics)

Other songs…

Isaac Gracie: “Last Words.”

Alice Merton: “No Roots.”

George Ezra: “Paradise.”

Wolf Alice: “Bros.”

And finally…
