Observations

This weekend I:

• Ate the New Covent Garden Soup of the month, which is called “Choc Full of Beans”. It’s lots of nice beans with a hint of chocolate and is remarkably nice.

• Ate Paul Rankin’s cinnamon and raisin bread. That is also very nice.

• Managed to convince G to put up the mirror in my living room. This turned out to be a remarkably large amount of work for G (up and down ladders, lots of measuring and drilling), but for me mainly consisted of making tea and providing food.

• Was reminded how observant children are and you therefore have to be careful what you say. We went to visit one of G’s friends. He has a daughter who is about 18 months old and recently was teaching her about dog’s having “waggy tails”. Said child then saw him with no clothes on and pointed out that he too had a waggy tail…

no subject - we all laughed a lot. Children can be very amusing!

Blue soup said...

I've been eyeing up that soup for a while now, but the chocolate part puts me off. You say it's good, so I'll give it a shot!

blue soup - I thought it was really nice, but now I am worried that you'll try it and hate it. Gulp!

nods head up and down and smiles as having five kids have no ends of comments we could talk about that they have said

jip - I can just imagine. My nephew needs no encouragement to say all sorts of things that would horrify any adult - and if there were five of him... wow...
