Happier than a Frenchman who's just invented self removing trousers. Almost

Today I am perkier.

Today is the kind of winter day I like. There was a heavy frost this morning but the sun was shining brightly in a clear blue sky. The boys and I bounced up the lane to school, all snuggled up in hats, gloves and scarves. Simple pleasures, following each others footsteps in the grass.

My beautiful boy two is five on monday. He's having a party with all of his class on Saturday and then on Sunday, A is taking him and a chum to see the stage show of The Gruffalo's Child, which they'll love.

I will be watching boy one in gladitorial combat on the rugby pitch. Still makes my heart burst with pride when I watch him charging along, ball in hand, floppy hair billowing out as he goes.

I'm going soft.

nah, you are not going soft, you're just a very proud dad. Nothin' wrong with that! Me, I was grumpy as hell this morn trying to get the ice off my car for the first time this season.

I don't wanna hear no more of this family guy shizz. Let those balls drop, and talk shizz about your family like the rest of these miserable men.

Hey BB, I missed this one ! I can't be miserable all of the time ! Although the two of them are a royal pain in the arse 80% of the time, the rest of it is just peachy.
