Letters to my sons.

Trying to explain the world to two very small children.

Sunday cooking.

Dear Son,

we had a quite a good day yesterday. We managed to get around ASDA in Leyton in less than 35 minutes – a new record. This was due to two factors; a short shopping list and a lack of people in the shop. We missed going early on Saturday because I was having a well deserved lie in. We did manage to hit the sweet spot yesterday when there are no queues at the tills.

While you and your mother had afternoon sleeps I made a salad, two pizzas and some desert using the old apples and plumbs. I used 120 grams of sugar, self raising flour and margarine, 2 eggs, a pinch of salt and a palm full of cinnamon plus some old plums and apples. I simply put everything except the fruit in the mixer and whooshed it until it was a batter. I chopped the fruit, put it in an baking dish, poured the batter on top and cooked it for 30 minutes in the oven.

You ate the pizza, but didn’t want the salad or the pudding. I was hoping you would eat some pudding and get part of your 5-a-day but you told me you didn’t like it.

We are getting nearer to having the house ready for number two. Your mother threw out a hold load of rubbish on Saturday and I took some furniture to be recycled along with a broken television and computer monitor. We can’t seem to find the “0 to 3 months” baby clothes that are in the loft somewhere so I will have another look this evening as we need to get them out and washed. The buggy should be ready to go this evening after all the bits were washed – just need to reassemble.

After picking up my mum’s car (Grandma Audrey’s Car) from Uncle Phil I am still trying to sell the Skoda (the new car). I have just dropped the price from £3200 to £3000 and I’ll keep dropping £200 each fortnight until it’s sold. Hopefully before I’ll sell it before your brother is born.

Sleepless nights will soon be back!
