    Landed in Manchester this morning and it wasn't raining, that's got to be worth a cheer.

    I'm only here for 3 days so it's going to be difficult eating all the food I have missed the last few years. Today, it's meat pies for lunch and fish&chips for supper.

    Turning a negative situation into a positive!

    At the rear of my garden is a beautiful beach tree that I've been training for a few years to block out the house property at the rear so that we are not overlooked.

    Fortunately today I was in at the correct time because a Karen was hurtling up a ladder with pruning sheers.

    I inquired as to her intentions to the tree on my property, her response was I'm going to chop it down with my chainsaw before it gets too big!
    I replied it's on my property, to which she replied it's not.

    Ok, she obviously needs some of the Chitty charm.

    I get out my ladder to join her and have a discussion about Topiary, my plans, the Summerhouse/bar roof I'm standing on and what a glorious day it is etc

    I compromise and chop a couple of feet of the top then with her assistance train any branches on her side to grow along the perimeter.

    Shes happy and I'm happy shes happy.
    I'm also happy as well because there is an overgrown Anderson Shelter in her garden that she doesn't want, now these are pretty rare and I can have it, it appears in reasonable condition for a 80 year old bomb shelter.
    I fear I may have to invite Karen around to my bar for some customary libration.
    Shalom

    But the 'cheer' has gone out of it now because I win sometimes and they crack the sulks.

    Them playing computer games is not you 'playing with your kids'.

    Get them off the screen, actually play with them. Be a better parent.

    The idea that 'screen time is bad' is completely outdated. Keep your kids off devices and they'll grow up tech illiterate and way behind their peers.

    Bullshit. As long as they keep up with IT there is no need for the gaming thing. Neither of my kids played games and they are 24 now with great jobs and are completely IT savvy. In fact Vanessa who was just hired by Apple to a management position got the new Apple 13 pro max phone and McBook pro given to her as part of the job.

    Well that's all highly relevant.

    Surely armstrong must be trolling.

    Actually, playing MarioKart is part of playing with them.

    As well as numerous other activities.

    The Boys are in Little Athletics ... their shoe box of medals and trophies is overflowing.
    I Coach them at home, drive them to the club nights (once a week), Coach all the participants in their age division on the night in the throwing events.
    Do all the physical training with them.
    Daily or weekly cheer-1635117112687-2-jpg
    At days end, medals proudly displayed.

    Watch all the Cartoons with them.
    Take them down the park and kick the footy with them.
    Cook for them when Mum has pulled a double shift.

    Drive them to school.
    Sit in the car for 40 mins while they play with their mates after school.
    Overview their homework and, when it's shit, tell them to do it again.

    They are top of their Class and both have received the rare platinum school award 3 years running ... and they have only been at school for 3 years.

    ... but you get the idea by now.
    Someone is sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago ...

    Gaming is a part of keeping up with IT. How else are they going to do it? Daughter can code in Scratch and is far more keen to read in Roblox than with Biff, Chip and Wilma. Minecraft is used constantly in British schools in all sorts of lessons so much so that there's a 'Minecraft Education' version.

    Not to mention the life learning of not winning every game, taking turns, fair play and the dexterity of the left and right hands.
    I'd like to see what morning looks like
    Don't wanna drink pint after pint
    I wanna wake up without feeling sick
    But I can't cuz I'm a drug-abusing alcoholic

    Mine learned that through sport as I did.

    The IT part they enjoy computers and had to write papers so it came. Neither can do "coding", but in their chosen professions that is not necessary.

    Lu, no need to beat yourself up like that.

    Just remember, your kid/s come first.

    You'll be a good Dad one day.

    Just work hard and stay away from those African Lassies
