Yes, I have been spending too much time with the under-2’s

From a toddler perspective a box of sultanas is a wonderful thing. It’s a toy that can be played with as well as a food. Sultanas can be scattered and fought over with siblings as well as eaten.


From a distracted mother’s point of view, especially when there are a few chores to be done, sultanas can also be a success. The silence is ear-splitting. No one is wrapped around her legs.

The proud hausfrau on the other hand is not so impressed. Squished sultanas on the carpet and half chewed ones in every crevice – not so fun.

I wonder if the few minutes silence is worth the cleaning of squishy fruit?

weight loss program

February 5, 2007

So I’m on a new diet, and have quite a lot of confidence in it. I’m in the kitchen preparing a few truckloads of vegetables and I ask my husband a question:

Me: “So, do you think I can do it? Think I can lose 10 kilos?”
H: “Sure you can”
Me: “Great, thanks”
H: “Actually, you could lose 6 kilos tonight if you wanted.”
Me: (ears perking up) “Oh? How’s that?”
H: “I could cut your leg off”

Couldn’t resist putting that one on there…
