Spring is here. There are some signs of life in the garden. Perhaps the winter is finally drawing to a close. We’ll see.Meanwhile, the kids are great. Orla is continuing her reading, and like her daddy was at her age, is hooked on books. She tries to sneak out of bed, when she’s supposed to be going to sleep, to get more reading in. High on her fiction best seller list is “Go Away, Spot” and “Learn with Dick and Jane”. I’m sure Shakespeare won’t be too far away…

Both kids continue to pester us with requests for animals. Two weeks ago they wanted birds, so now we have two finches. Last week it was fish, so we have two new catfish. This week Eoghan was inconsolable because Jenn wouldn’t get him a guinea pig. Sigh. Where will it all end ?

Meanwhile, Orla is turning into a real hard taskmaster. I arrived in work the other day to discover the following message that Orla had left for me a little earlier :

Dad, I’m going to give you 10 minutes.
Call back.
And you better make it quick !

Needless to say, I wasted no time in getting back to her. I didn’t want an earful…
