This week’s homework was to devise, record and create their own recipe. Barney came up with a banana, pineapple, chocolate and coconut smoothie. With cocoa powder sprinkled on top.
Don’t put that in your mouth
Stop all that leaping about
Don’t use that tone of voice with me
I said don’t put that in your mouth. Euw
No, we’re not buying that
Because I’m not made of money
Well we have to earn money before it comes out of the cash machine
Look where you’re going for heaven’s sake
I said look where you’re going
Now say sorry to the nice lady
Like you mean it
What’s that on your shirt? Goodness me
Mind where you’re walking
I said stop all that leaping about, you’re going to hurt someone. Or yourself
I told you to stop leaping didn’t I? Rub it better
Could you carry something please? I’m running out of hands
Well it is all your stuff
Is that thing in your mouth again?
The next bit of naughtiness means we’re going straight home
I said the next bit of – hey! Are you even listening? Hello?
Any recommendations for free or cheap iPhone games that suit 6-year-olds? My boy sometimes needs distracting or occupying for short times and the games I’ve got installed – Wurdle, Enigmo, Topple, even Jelly Car – are a bit too tricky for him to master. I need something that rewards very quickly and with minimum intellectual challenge.

I’ve always been a reluctant gardener. Which is a pity, because K loves gardening and would happily spend hours out in the garden every weekend. But I just find it boring, most of the time.
Some years ago, though, I successfully grew some potatoes. I know they were successful because Matt Biddulph said they were the tastiest spuds he’d ever eaten, quite a recommendation from a man of experience and taste such as he.
Anyway, this year my family have suggested I grow some spuds again, and I’m quite keen on the idea. So keen that today I actually went outside voluntarily and during a break in my working day to dig over the veg patch concerned and get rid of some weeds.
And I enjoyed it. Blimey.
Bet you’re excited at the thought of me posting regular vegetable news alerts here aren’t you? Eh?
