David is married!! And he and Christina are safely on their...whatever it is they're doing. And the party here is still going, but I am old and tired, so I came inside amid shrieks of happiness and cheer (not because I was leaving...)

Last night was the bachelor party and it was...interesting. How come it was David's bachelor party and they still kept buying ME lapdances. Is it because I turn red? I was Not Amused. There was a barely clad girl dancing over me and all I could think was 'I wonder if she gets cold when she does this in the winter? I should give her a blanket.' Which I don't think is the point. Thomas, however, had the night of this life and he said announced "There should always be bachelor parties" rather loudly to everyone. He didn't get a feather boa this time, though. Woe is Thomas.

This is going to be long. I shall cut it just for you. Today was the wedding. )

Today was mad. That's...kind of the only way to describe it. This morning we decided to undertake an expedition to the museum of Valencia. It's....incredible. Look. Christina wanted to accompany us, as she and Aly are both British Museum alums. It was amusing to hear them comparing notes. "Our displays are so much better." And then I said that the people who worked at the British Museum were so much more beautiful too, and they both kissed my cheek!! Peter wins! Anyway, Christina was not the only one that decided to come along. Svetlana wanted to see it as well, and thus, we dragged Thomas along for the ride. He was Not Pleased to be taken away from his ocean. In fact, he made quite a point to look grotty and wear the most touristy things he could find. And a hat. Because days in the sea water make Thomas's hair all curly! Hee! Anyway, he started making the best faces while we were waiting (forever) for a tram. He looked quite annoyed. And then Svetlana befriended some American tourists and she informed them rather loudly "This is Thomas! He is my impotent boyfriend! And that is why Peter is my baby daddy!" And then Thomas looked at me like this. Poooor Thomas. And he insists it was because he was hungry, but I know the truth. Emma, meanwhile, is confused because she did not know Svetlana was having my child (oops...)

Anyway...in the afternoon, Lydia went with the older girls to go shopping. They were rather successful and brought back some wonderful things. And some holes in some ears. But Lydia looks very grown up and beautiful. Then came meeting family members I've never met before. Cousin Vincenza, who is a 17 year old who must be some sort of supermodel. And for some reason she wouldn't let go of me. That is when I realised I picked up a bit of crazy down in St. Sebastians. I do not like people touching me if I don't know them. She's Aly's family, and I was terrified she was going to jab my side with a hot poker. Anyway, then I met her father, Cousin Alejandro and he was confused when Jacinta introduced me as her son. He said "David, what have you done with your hair?" and I think David was a tad insulted at that. Me, I just giggled. But then he hugged me and I had a panic attack. But I hid it well, thank you! Hopefully I'll get over that whole...DON'T TOUCH ME thing. Probably when lovely family members don't hot poker me in the side. Or...anywhere else.

Ahem. Best part of the night? During David's rehearsal dinner, Brian decided to be an arse. He walked up to David and inquired as to why he was getting married to a woman if he's gay. He could take a hint from 'the lesbos' instead. And Thomas, who had had enough today, just punched him in the arm. No hesitation. And Brian looked shocked. And everyone applauded Thomas and he's now been accepted as a cousin too!

Impotence and all.

David gets married tomorrow!!

Well! Today was a wonderful day! My sister proposed to Emma. She said yes, of course. They're off 'celebrating'. And David's getting married on Tuesday! Such excellent and happy news. We took a day off from touristing too and so I spent all afternoon watching Thomas do this )

Today, Lydia and I talked and she's so grown up it scares me a little! She wants to get her ears pierced. And considering everything she's come through, I think she deserves to make that decision. She's excited because she gets to go shopping with Hope and Tasha and Zoe and Isabella. Meanwhile Daddy sits home and has a minor flipout that she'll come back with a mohawk or something. But she's proven that she's mature beyond her years and she deserves to have fun. And considering that all of her siblings are younger with the exception of Tasha, she also deserves to spend some time with older people who aren't parental units. I'm so proud of her.

And David. And Emma. And Liz. And I love Aly so very much.

Miguel, however, keeps trying to give me tequila. "For celebrate!" He is very nice and everything, but I currently do not love Miguel. And I wish I had some tequila. But wouldn't that just ruin a perfectly wonderful holiday. (I'll just keep reminding myself of that every 20 seconds).

Aly told me to do the photo thing. So that is what I am doing. By the way, Spain rocks. And I am having the best time, and cannot properly articulate how wonderful it is. Well, not without being a little naughty.

Valencia! And things! )

Can't sleep. Too much to do. I packed and I squared everything away with the hospital and I made arrangements and I think I made myself crazy in the process but I still feel like there's things I should be doing and sleep isn't one of them.

Goddammit I can't wait to be on vacation. I think the last time I had a one of those was when Lydia turned eight and we went to York for three days and gorged ourselves on those little donuts. She made me play tea party and we had the most fantastic time. It was just us and we explored the little laneways and shops and I spoiled her positively rotten (shhh don't tell the church because I took a vow of poverty har har) and then I had to go back to Melk and I pouted for probably the next 3 years.

That was a nice story.

Still can't sleep.

My wonderful son is a month old today. To celebrate, Aly bought a video camera and proceeded to film me squealing and running out of shot for a good oh...seven hours. Apparently it never gets old. I beg to very much differ. Oh and she filmed the baby too. And...other things, but that was totally on a different tape. One can never be too careful.

Anyway, so we broke the camera in good and proper. Please do not punch me, David. I bruise like a peach.

Aly also took this picture. He is my handsome little man! So adorable when he's sleeping. And when he's awake. And when he's doing anything and everything ever.

And now there is singing and Lydia, Anna and Caleb make Thomas a cake. I did not help, but Aly did. I got to play with cutie widdle baby while they did all the hard work! And now I will eat the cake of their labour!

Today I was told that my daughter only exsists because Katherine was afraid she'd lose me after I caught her cheating. Of course, big dummy that I am, I wasn't really going to leave her (I've made that particular mistake twice now...marvel at my stupidity) but she was so afraid that she stopped taking her birth control pills to try and get pregnant to keep me there.

Wonderful, isn't it?

But the very fact that Katherine admitted that to me actually made me feel better. Not because of what she did, but because she's changed enough that she can see what she did as a bad thing. And she trusts me enough to tell me. That's pretty astounding progress from hissing obscenities when I walk into a room, I think.

And really, I don't care how Lydia came about. I'm just damn glad she's here.

Tasha is getting better everyday, which makes me very happy. She als0 becomes more and more like Liz everyday, which is scary, but I am quite grateful for that as well. Even if I am now surrounded...

Because of Tasha's condition, she's going to be able to take deferred exams so we'll be leaving for Spain sooner than anticipated. We won't be gone long. We just want a chance to relax and there are several dozen Spanish cousins waiting to steal Thomas from me and coo over him. Speaking of Thomases, Big Thomas is going to come with us. He says he's going to wear a bikini. Don't you worry, I'll take pictures.

I read Baby Thomas the Symposium today. I figured why bother with the baby books, why not start right off! He stares at me in rapt attention and smiles. He likes Socrates! But when I read Aristotle, he falls asleep. He is clearly a Plato fan. Or he'd rather hear about love instead of being virtuous. I'm with you, Little Guy.

Svetlana, would you like to come over today? I have something I'd like to discuss with you.

Today was fantastic! I think I kissed everyone... Though Tasha did show me Cradle of Fear which is a horrifying movie with like...gore and stuff. And naked ladies. Nothing like watching a movie full of naked women and having your teenage daughter turn to you and inform you, through her purple monkey voicey thing, that she likes the women's breasts and inquires as to your opinion. So...in essence, a purple monkey asked me "Do you like her breasts, Dad?"

Really didn't know what to say to that. Talking animals and dirtyness and the like. Poor poor Peter.

Oh and my wife does not like it when you sing 'zippidedoodah' by the way. Just don't do it! It's not a pretty picture!! Well Aly is always gorgeous, but she pinches hard!
