An afternoon making tents lead to all kinds of squabbling yesterday. Thankfully we do not live in an HMO (house of multiple occupation), though sometimes it does feel like we do. The weekend sped by and is now catalogued in my mind as but a memory, one with which to ponder on today. As you can see, Remus and Gracie are always participating in what we all get up to.
The day finished with bath time. It was all a bit screamy, leaving me vowing to never participate again! Of course next Sunday I will back John up and help out with the hair drying, but for now I will let them believe they pushed me just a little too far! They were marginally better behaved at dinner time. A roast dinner event comprising of roast leg of lamb, roasties cooked in lard (lamb fat has too strong a flavour), mashed swede, glazed carrots, peas, sautéed Savoy cabbage and just a few, for Tara, Amritsar, Aaliyah and myself, Brussel sprouts. The first time for this indulgence this year! I was very surprised that Aaliyah piped up and said that she absolutely loved Brussel sprouts. I had cooked them for Amritsar and Tara primarily, but it seems that I will be cooking them for 4 out of 7 on Xmas day! So, we have a majority on the sprouts then this year! It’s the small things isn’t it…?
