About Me
I'm a Melbourne boy, hailing from St Kilda with one ex, one current wife and four kids. Love the outdoors and making new discoveries. I cook a lot at home (cheers from wife) and do some preserving, mostly jams, pickles and fruit liqueurs. This is the diary of a cooking journey.

No Brainer
Interesting morning.

At daughter M's. school they give out a weekly form called "weekend news", to be filled out by the parents, giving the students cues for discussing the weekend. The Wife asked me this morning to fill it out.

Saturday, ... tram ride to city ... stand in line ... look at xmas display in Myer window ...

Sunday, ...?

"Darling, I think Sunday is yours".

"Can you just write something"?

"I was fishing all day, I don't know what you did".

"Just do it".

Monday... enrolling in mind reading course.

Wish I could have done Friday.

Picked up M. after school, hurried to Coles to do our ritual shopping (snack and drink for M.), as a researcher was coming over to test me for a project. We bumped into a lady handing out chocolate samples for a new cappuccino flavoured chocolate bar, M. needed a couple of tries to make sure she really liked it!

We got home and the researcher arrived soon after. Man, she had some weird tests, the weirdest ~ and hardest ~ was identifying the colour of a word that was different from the written word; for instance the word red was written in green and I had to say green and so on down a list. Nearly passed out after that one. There was even a sneaky test where I wasn't tested at all - go figure.

After we were done, we got to talking about M.

At school M. has a large circle of friends but she has one special friend . After watching Shrek a zillion times, she has taken to describing him as her "true love". I was relating this to the researcher and called out to M.

"Who's your true love"?

"The lady with the chocolate".

Good girl.
