Fun With a Wheelbarrow

So far, most of my posts on this new blog are about Matthew. Can't resist this next one though. I'll justify it by using it for a short story.

I took Matthew in the back garden and put him on the trampoline, bounced him a few times (very tiring), then let him lie on the grass while I mowed the lawn. That's when I spotted the wheelbarrow. It's old and rusty and covered in dried concrete, but what the hell. With a blanket and a duvet it was ready to roll. Matthew had a quick tour of the street, bumping up and down the curbs. He had a great time. Then we returned to the garden and tipped him out - to squeals of delight.

The next post will be about writing. Honest!


  1. First time I've seen your blog, Colin [found it via Writewords] and wanted to say this post just brought the biggest smile to my face! What a top Dad :)

  2. Ah, thanks Caroline. Matthew is in respite tonight, so we're really missing him. Gives us a brief break while I figure out something even more irresponsible :)

  3. Hello colin, this is the first time I've stumbled across your blog as well (via Writewords). Loved the picture.
