What a bummer. I’ve been leading a bid that was due to be finished today, and we all ended up staying late in the office until it was ready to go to print. I had to call GG and tell her that I wouldn’t be able to make dinner this eveing, which is a real shame… she was making tortilla, which I was looking forward to. Now I won’t see her until Sunday, and then she’s off to Spain to see her family for a week. I’m going to have to try to stay out of mischief, which hasn’t proven to be a particular skill of mine in the past.
As for Dick… well, I had a couple of meetings today at which he was present, and he was an absolute pussycat. Now he’s not that bright, so my thinking is that he knows we’re not heading for a big falling out. Either that or I’ve got him wrong – he’s really very bright, and I’m screwed. I’m an optimist so I’m going for the former.
Zooz was just asking if I’m going to the fireworks party with GG (she’s dying to have a good look at her I reckon) but the truth is, I don’t think I’m ready for GG to meet the children just yet. I’ve made a point of shielding them from my personal life, and until I get a feeling that there’s at least a glimmer of longevity to our relationship I’ve decided that I’m going to continue to play it cautiously. I feel like I have to protect the children from people coming into their lives and then disappearing again… but then I know I’m over-protective in all sorts of ways. I also know that being the kind of father I want to be means that they have to come first. But that's fine, because it's how I want it to be...
I was having a look at some very strange sites today, courtesy of Stumble Upon. This one is cool, because although it takes ages to work out what the fuck’s going on the music is lovely. Especially late at night.
