well, for the most part in this corner of the world we had a somewhat damp, mostly chilly weekend to enjoy. it perhaps goes without saying that i trust the climate was a good deal more agreeable wherever you may be in the world, dear reader!
the weather, however, did not prevent us from doing as we wished with the weekend, which meant that we were able to arrange for haircuts for both myself and James, and indeed go and visit my dear, beloved mother-in-law. and Dylan, of course.
thanks to the magic of photography, behold! for i am able to show to you James' stylish new haircut and indeed proof, if it was required, that he did indeed see Dylan at the weekend!
sorry that the two of them are not quite posing for the camera as such, they were rather heavily involved with a game at the time! i think that the game is called Ben 10 Ultimate Alien Cosmic Destruction, but there may be 5 or 6 words from the title that i am currently forgetting about!
as for how we were able to persuade James to let us cut his hair, in particular with the clippers (a device he is known to find great displeasure in), well, it was thanks to a masterstroke. James allowed us to cut his hair as long as he was allowed to have a go at cutting Daddy's hair with it first. this he did, and the results are more or less why there is no picture of me in this post!
there is of course space for a picture of William in this post, however, as indeed there is for Ouma. and why not have the three of them together?
yes, i understand your immediate thought on seeing the above is why on earth would we allow James to handle a catapult, something that can easily be a weapon of considerable, let alone mass, destruction in the hands of a five year old. well, the short answer is that Michele and i did not, but his Ouma and Uncle Dylan had no problem with it. thankfully he has no idea of what it is exactly or how it works, so this pose with it is the only damage done! William seems very impressed with it!
be excellent to each other!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
