First Skype call with my son Joshua, now 7 months old

Please share this article with your comrades in revolutionary capitalism

- Tom Winnifrith

It has taken the older generation a few days to get our respective accounts working but tonight the Mrs and I finally managed a skype call, for the rest of the family are not joining me here in Greece for another couple of weeks. And by "rest of the family" I mean it: the mother in law is coming too. But that treat is for another day.

For now Joshua stared at the screen not quite sure what was happening but as I called out his name he twigged and broke out in a massive smile and just kept on smiling. Then it was Oakley's turn. The Mrs put him next to the screen but my, no longer morbidly obese, three legged cat is camera shy. There was a brief recognition as I called his name but then he scuttled off to play with Joshua.

I always have skype calls with Oakley when I am away but Joshua seems keen on playing ball for far longer. I am sure he is desperate to say "Daddy" but can't manage it quite yet. Not long now.
