Parent roster help

A few months ago I put my name down at Jimmy's school for parent roster. It was a cheerful, happy environment, complemented by bright colours and art.

Wishing that hospital rooms were as bright and cheerful!

Surprise fruit

I can't quite remember exactly when but I planted 2 citrus trees in the back garden. This garden update in 2011 shows the 2 small plants which malingered on for years and didn't do anything until I forgot what I had actually planted.

They never grew much in height and occasionally I would be overcome by guilt, throw in some citrusy-food at them and attack the grass at the base of the trunks.

Then this appeared. Yep. One solitary golden-yellow orb. It filled me with excitement. Woohoo like 10 years of gardening has borne me a fruit!

 I waited until I thought maybe it was ripe. And even after picking I didn't cut it straightaway. It looked like an orange, but I was surprised and very happy to discover it was grapefruit. Juicy, not too tart. Will probably wait a few more years to get another.

My beardy husband

Rob has been home for almost a year as a stay-at-home dad. Jimmy started school fulltime this year, so he has been able to get into the swing of school dad and home dad. He decided to grow a big beard, which took a little while before it stopped being like a stiff brush which poked me in the face.

He looked like a homeless man ...

Food and drink would get caught in his beard

He looks like a knight!

Hee hee ....
