Temporary technical eye difficulties...

OK, was going to do a big long post about SIL as promised complete with pictures of her humping her dog but the weirdest thing is happening to my eye. Just the left one is like it's filled with water, but doesn't hurt, like I don't need to blink, it's just like my sight is all .... watery...?! What the fuck, am I about to have a heart attack or something!? Is it really fatty food withdrawal!? It's scaring the fuck out of me, maybe I shouldn't spend too much time staring at computer screens and my iphone... The watery effect does resemble the little symbol on the iphone when it's loading a page. Scary.

Anyway, so yeah, will be a quickie, I promise SIL hilarity soon though.

I'm not usually one for sharing baby stories on my blog, I find most of them slightly boring, I can only imagine how mind-numbing it must be for someone reading about them, but there was a point this morning that I just have to share with you.
First of all I should say, having a child has been the most life altering, stressful, sometimes wonderful, sometimes horrific experience of my life. But sometimes, not often, but often enough, there is a moment where you go, "Oh fuck, having him was so worth it, just for this moment!"

Ash and I were still snuggled up under the covers this morning with air con blasting (bite me eco people, try living in Osaka heat for a while and see how you go!) and savouring that last 15 minutes snuggling before we had to wake up. Ryota had gone downstairs earlier to get ready for work and I was awake but not ready to get up, Ash was in that cuddly, but almost waking up stage. Anyway, Ash stretches and lets a massive fart rip, like it was an adult sounding fart, huge! I had a giggle but was totally shocked when he got up on his knees, eyes still closed, held his nose in a 'that fucking stinks' motion, pointed to Ryota's futon and said "DADDY!!" Then went back to sleep!

How awesome is my kid!? He blames someone else for farting, IN HIS SLEEP! I must admit, Ryota is the main farting offender in our house, so I shouldn't be surprised, but it was just one of those times where you think to yourself, 'Fuck me I love this kid.'

OK, must go, heart attack imminent, think I'll go close my eyes for a few minutes and see how I go!


  1. Errr, yes, I AM stuck to my computer thankyouverymuch. Otherwise, I think that's why I like your blog so much. I don't have kids and it's true that reading about the minutia of other people's babies simply isn't interesting as a reader. I like that you tell stories about Ash when there is a point to them. The fact that you are hilarious helps too.

  2. I don't know if it's because you stare at computer screens too much and such. My eyeballs have been latched onto my laptop screen since I took up graphic design as a career, and my eyes haven't reacted like that.

    I hope it clears up soon! :(

    My hub is the main fart-machine in our house too. I'm sure if we ever have a son, he'll be getting bad habits from Takeshi!

    But Ash is so funny! He's gonna' be a riot when he gets older. ;)

  3. That's awesome he blamed his daddy even in his sleep!!!

  4. Sorry about your eye and all, but the freaking suspense is killing me! I LOVE your SIL stories. They mostly me want to slap her, but definitely good entertainment value.

  5. Stories about other people's children don't usually do it for me, but this one is charming! Ash definitely has his priorities straight.

  6. Ah ha hah - the kid learns early: blame dad!
