As you can probably guess from my current update frequency, I’ve been busy for the whole beginning of the year. Fortunately in a good way. This year looks good for business.
While I’m busy at work, I try to focus on my family, too. Weekends have been safe havens that I try to keep uncluttered. There are certain things that spill over from the weekdays, usually web gigs. Also my hobbies include mostly computers, so Sanna can’t always tell whether I’m busy with work, hobby or wasting my time in front of computers.
Last weekend was really exceptional in the family perspective. First, I bought Super Mario Galaxy on my way home. And also on Friday, I got permission to buy a huge Lego Technic set for Aapo and myself — a black tow truck with pneumatics and tons of other cool features.
I spent the Friday evening building it, and continued early on Saturday — Aapo woke me up in order to get it ready as soon as possible. I spent six hours just building it, so I was pretty happy to see Aapo so joyful with his new toy.
We towed a ton of other cars and trucks during Saturday. When Aapo was sleeping, I played the game for a few hours while Sanna was watching it and talking with me. Aapo participated watching on Sunday, too. I couldn’t guess that a game console would bring family together in such a way.
Sunday was an active day, as we spent two hours in HopLop kid activity park. I escorted Aapo in all kinds of climbing area that looked like miniature scaffolding filled with kids. It has been designed for people under ten years, so sometimes I felt quite crammed there. But I had a lot of fun, too.
Both days were rainy, so no football playing this time.
This weekend Aapo has been sick and thus we have been mostly inside. The regimen has included Skype calls to grandparents, jigsaw puzzles and some Super Mario Galaxy — it’s getting quite hard and I’m only halfway through.
