Birthday Money


Took my son into town yesterday to spend his birthday money.  He wanted a pirate ship.  In particular, he wanted The Black Pearl.

We found one made by Mega Bloks and after tea we set to and started to build it.  There’s something quite relaxing about building models from scratch.  We beavered on industriously together, we chatted about Captain Jack Sparrow, we drifted off into our own thoughts – him probably dreaming up pirate adventures and me, well…just dreaming.  We lost pieces. We found them again.  Parts fell off, wouldn’t click in place.  We persevered.  Then I left him to it and went off to clear up the tea-time mess and by the time I returned, the ship was complete.  Well done Josh!
