Journalling reads: When Nana fell and broke her arm she had lots of hospital appointments, most of them were while you were at school, so I just went with Nana. But on this occasion we had an afternoon appointment so you had to come with us. We had a really long wait but you were a really good boy, you sat nicely and played with all of the toys in the waiting room. Your favourite toy seemed to be a big Transformers monster truck. I did take some photographs of you, but they didn’t turn out great, thanks in part to the really bad lighting, and they were really blurry because you just don’t sit still. Eventually we were done and it was time to leave, Nana wanted to do some shopping and after that the best place to call and wait for a taxi is in the reception for the Children’s hospital. You were fascinated by this new wooden dragon ride. It’s a little bit like a rocking horse, there is a seat and straps for your feet, you sit on it and then it swings backwards and forwards. It was not very easy to get you up on to it, since the seat is quite high and you are a really big boy. With a combination of pushing, pulling and lifting I managed to get you up in to the seat. Then you decided that you were scared and wanted to get straight down. I asked if you would mind me taking one photograph before you did, you reluctantly agreed. In the time it took me to change the setting on the camera, you had changed your mind and started to enjoy yourself. So I guess how you train a dragon is in three steps. 1. Climb up on to it’s back. 2. Be brave and hold on tight. 3. Sit back and enjoy the ride. This was much more fun than just waiting for a taxi!

Journalling reads: Your birthday didn’t exactly go to plan, but then to be fair it’s never really does. We tried to make the best of it and you ended up having a good time, although that might have had a little bit to do with the fact that you got two birthday cakes. This vanilla sponge bake with vanilla icing and jelly sweets (to cut up for everyone) and a decorated Cars cake for me to photograph and scrap! What can I say I guess all birthdays can be made better when there is cake involved. 3rd August 2006.

Journalling reads: Sometimes I can be such a child, for my 25th birthday I was pretty insistant that all I wanted for my birthday was a chocolate birthday cake. I don’t really like icing so me and Lukas decided on an alternative, a frozen double chocolate fudge cake. My favourite way to eat it, is straight out of the freezer before the chocolate on top goes runny. To make it slightly more interesting since it was a milestone quarter of a century birthday, so we just swapped out the boring birthday candles for something a lot more interesting, sparklers!
