Babes had seconds of both the chilli and the banoffee pie last night! Even though technically I probably shouldn't be calling what I made pie. Because strictly speaking "pie" is not a liquid. Also, the caramel was a bit burned, but nevermind.
My runny burned banana-y
creamy goop was a huge success.
The children loved the chilli as well. Victory was mine!
Tonight, another winner: rocket salad with melon, smoked ham, mozarella, tomatoes and homemade crostini. Two nights in a row I got compliments from the children. I'm going to end up chasing that high, it was so good.
Has two definite words. It may come as no surprise that my 4kg875 (10lbs 12oz - at birth, obviously - he's more than twice that now) baby decided to talk about food first. Around his ten month anniversary, he started saying "koek" (biscuit) and now he also says "pap" (word for liquid food). He's copying words like nappy, poo, horse and baby when he hears them, but the other two he uses on his own to demand food. I'm so proud.
Can count all the way to twenty! For a while there, she'd misplaced seventeen but it has now been restored to its rightful place in the sequence.
Came home sick, and I made fun of him. I can be such a bitch.
Got sick at creche. They phoned me as they were giving him some paracetamol and putting him to bed. I went to get him four hours later. He was happy and drugged, but still... I'm sure karma has a suitable payback in store for me tonight.
A year and twenty five days after the elections, and still no government. A last-ditch effort at making an agreement between the warring factions has been shot down by the biggest party. We have it so good in this country, but people take it for granted. I just hope we all get our acts together soon or we may end up regretting it seriously.
- My local policeman:
Who stopped me at four in the afternoon, with three children strapped into the car. Who, when told that I hadn't had any alcohol, asked me: "Really none at all?"
In an attempt to have a few serious thoughts and note them down, I took a notebook and pencil to the indoor playground today. Next time I should think more carefully about my choice of gear
Not a serious notebook and pencil
Used to be really pretty.
Pretty as a picture
Now look at her.
Has let herself go a bit
I particularly like the chest hair.
