My recent trip to Chile informed me of the international driving rules:-
William- Eva, can you put Netflix on for me?
Eva- Netflix doesn’t work because Daddy’s brother didn’t pay for it.
William- Awww. That’s so mean!
Fake USB thumb drives
I ordered 120 128GB for $6 each off a Chinese marketplace, Joom. I fully expected them not to be 128GB, more of the capacity range of 8-16GB. Joom offers a full refund if the item you receive is not as described, leaving me with all my cash and 120 x 8GB thumb drives. I was sorely disappointed when I tested them and found they were all 128MB, and most had errors/ bad blocks within this.
We had a sleep-in this morning, to 6:30, when Eva comes in all excited that she had made porridge for her and the boys. I come out and try to pick up the pot and burnt my hand on the handle. I ask her how she picked up the pot, to which she rolled her eyes and said ‘I used an oven mitt to take it out of the microwave’
Rats? No, Toddler. This is what happens when you own one….
Eva comes running out of her room this morning holding her broken torch.
Eva- Daddy, my torch broke.
Me- Did you drop it?
Me- How did it break?
Eva- It hit Williams head.
Car Carpet Care
I shampooed the carpet of my car with glycol today.

2am this morning I was woken by being kicked and loud screaming.
In a sleep deprive stupor I looked up to see Amy standing next to the bed sobbing. As her husband I did the right thing and asked “What’s wrong?”.
Scam a scammer
I was selling a Sony VAIO 4.5 on E-Bay and someone by the alias of David William bid and won the computer, then they sent a fake Paypal invoice. I thought I would play along and and see where it got me. In the end I got a $100 down payment out of the $1900, but it took a LOT of emails. I obviously didn’t overly value my time
