That must taste horrible lol Happy WW
Grandma used to give me little slices of raw potato when she was cooking, but I can't remember her ever giving me the whole thing to lick.

Funny shot! :)
LOL. Kids love to eat the funniest things. I used to like raw potato. I grew out of it once I discovered hot chips :)

Ashlee is the same! I have to hide half the veggies when I am getting dinner ready or they don't make it inot the pot!

Interesting snack choice :)) Very cool shot!
Ah Sif, things must be bad at your place if he's resorting to a raw potato. Wicked photo.
Ew! Lol. Did he lick the taste?
Cathy said…
Lol so funny! My kids sometimes ask for potato when I'm peeling some...has to taste gross!
Haha! Mmmm, starchy!
Great shot! Keep it to show any prospective partners for sure!

Thanks for the comments guys - it was one of those "Quick! Where's my camera?!" moments yesterday, LOL. He kept saying, "Nummy, tasty!". He licked the whole thing (don't worry, I washed it before chopping it up and boiling it)!!!
haha! Love it!!
Jayne said…

Thats what I do to my kids, if they say they are hungry as I'm cooking dinner.
Kate said…

I thought that was an ice cream at first then did a double take.
Ash said…
That's so funny! I have an antiveggie boy too :)
Sif said…
I kept telling him, "You know that's a potato, right?", then at dinner I offered him some cooked potato and he gave me the filthiest look, like, "Mum, you RUINED it!" Really must try him on cabbage, mwhahahahahaha!

12 Things Happy People Do Differently - a self-reflection...

A few days ago a Facebook friend posted the above poster on her wall. I believe she got these points from this blog which she enjoys reading, and the bloggers on the Marc and Angel Hack Life blog derived their discussion of these points from this book, available on Amazon - you're welcome! I have to admit, I haven't read the blog or the book I've just mentioned but wanted my readers to have access to the sources of the poster for their own reflective purposes.
The New Year will be upon us in but a few days and I thought this a great opportunity to do a little personal assessment on how I'm playing the happy game. I'm often not very happy at all - I don't need to be happy all the time, let me just say that up front - I personally believe that life is a balancing act and those who seek euphoria often will also often feel desolation because in all things there must be balance. The great riches of the few on this planet come at the personal cost of the many as is …

The symbolism of elephants...

Just recently I've been seeing and noticing elephants everywhere!

A few weeks ago I saw the Samsung Elephant Ad, and watching that led me to watching a video with an elephant painting (seriously, you have to watch it to believe it!).

Then last night the boys told me they were having a free dress day at school to raise money for 'Mali the Elephant' - who turned out to be a paper maché statue which the children will paint and then show around the council before it comes back to the school to stand outside the performing arts room.

Then this morning I followed a link from Twitter to Toushka Lee's blog and read this post about an elephant orphanage in Sri Lanka.

This morning the Grumpy Old Man did another driving test and unfortunately didn't pass. We've booked his next test and are looking forward to that now. About ten minutes before he walked in the door I saw this poster on Facebook...


At the time, I didn't know if the Grumpy Old Man had been successful or …

Alone... And Stuff...

Do you ever just need to be alone?



As the boys are growing up, we have more times when the house is quiet. The youngest will be asleep. One will be reading, one will be playing on his computer with headphones on, one will be painting and there is stillness.

Sometimes, even that is not enough.

Sometimes I crave being alone, with no possibility of someone suddenly realising they have to tell me something important or ask me a question or even just crash about in the kitchen.

Sometimes I crave S P A C E, lots and lots of space, being able to walk from room to room without encountering another soul.

This is how I felt when I woke up this morning, so instead of getting ready for work, I decided to stay home. Get up, but not go anywhere, no hear the sound of my own voice, or anyone else's.

I think this might just be part of getting older. After a lifetime of chasing after other people and trying not to be alone, my mind and body is full of thoughts, experiences, feelings, and busy-ness …
