Last night I was in the office until nearly 2AM recording two podcasts (trying to get ahead). Friday is my day to work at home with the kids - the best day of the week - and I was planning to sleep in a little then finish up the FND before we did some fun family stuff. Events have now intervened as my oldest daughter was invited to an impromtu play date. This puts Stella and I in the rare position of being alone together, something the second child and I don't get enough of. It's an opportunity this dad can't pass up, especially on such a beautiful day.

I think you'll agree -- I'll try and catch you up on the news later. In the meantime, enjoy your weekend.
