For a favour for a friend.
And a bunch of money.
So Luuk and I have become bad parents and neglected the rest of the world as well. We have spent the last two days working on a project that a friend needs finished. The deadline he had was wrong and so we're helping him out. It's a contract he has to fill and he's splitting the funds. So that'll pay for christmas maybe. And Luuk's 30th birthday party.
We have to write 60 of these short scripts. Fun! Creative! I thought.
But the scripts are to explain computer hardware and networking... so the script writing is less fun and creative than I was expecting.
On the other hand I am learning all sorts of interesting things, like how a CD writer works, and the difference between a modem and a router, and why some websites are constantly updating, but others make you hit F5. Fascinating! (I'm not certain how sarcastic I'm being. There has to be a little sarcasm, but it is interesting, so I'm not being entirely sarcastic.)
Meanwhile, poor little Louis. We stuck him out on the lawn when we got tired of him trying to climb up on the computer desk. Luuk's keyboard makes tapping noises as if it wants to be a typewriter - so appealing when your 11 months old... apparently.
When he's inside he's been working his way along furniture, walking and wobbling and holding on tight. He can now go around corners... very carefully and with occasional bursts of tears which are soon abandoned because he needs all his concentration for not falling over.
Speaking of falling over, there were quite a few spills today. Luuk caught one on video and put it on facebook. It's very cute... and then horrible. Poor little louis.
