Zack and Roulette

Went for our annual jaunt to Newcastle to see my Auntie,just Zack and I this time,Rory was suspiciously happy to have a few days on his own.Jean always gets a few second hand toys and this year the biggest hit was roulette,Zack was a natural and by the end of the holiday had acquired a Chinese restaurant,2nd division football team ,somebody’s wife and a left handed putter.

Took the metro in Newcastle,Zack as usual pretended to drive at the front cab and seemed to be concentrating really hard,strange thing is we arrived 15 mins earlier and

missed out a couple of stops.

We went to see “Mission Impossible Fallout” which was great but some of the stunts are a bit tame compared to what Zack gets up to when I’m not looking,as usual with these films they are allowed one” f word” in the script,didn’t think Zack had noticed but he was a little upset.

“Dad,why the f*** did that b****** director feel the need to put that word in the c***** script,no f***** need”

buggers and everything gets eaten so quickly so I’ve started to just feed them what Zack drags in when he’s been out playing,got to admire his determination,no idea how he dragged the cow through the hall,if you have friends or relative so missing in the vicinity please let me know .

Zack’s going to football practice at Lockerbie every Friday evening,hasn’t got the hang of it yet but certainly raised a few eyebrows when he started using aspects of kickboxing……

“but you’ve had ,Doritos,hot dogs,ham and cheese toastie,kebab and your mum took you out for dinner 2 hours ago”

He’s still really skinny but I’m trying to bulk him up so I can get his hand me downs,he somehow gets trainers worth more than my daily outfit (currently sponsored by a popular supermarket chain and fire damaged goods)

Zack pauses and thinks

“I like butt cheeks and farting”

Still keeping my gym routine going ,the secret is to keep your shoulders growing at the same rate as your kebab and biscuit intake (not easy)
