Table Talk

“All we need to do,” I told my wife, “is buy an old table and cut the legs down. I’ve got a saw!” Anyone who’s ever seen or heard about my efforts with a hammer is now shuddering involuntarily.

I’m already thinking what the blog will be with your talents of the saw. A good read thats for sure. lol, lol

The idea that after trying to even each leg up we may end up with a flat bit of table top on the ground with no legs at all has crossed my mind :D

She sees the funny side :) Said she feels sorry for everyone else who saw it lol

Hahaha your poor mum! That is totally something I would do, though. But like me, I have no doubt she had a good laugh later :)
I mean, where else would you have got your sense of humour from? Sounds like you’ve got some good funny genes there from both folks!!

oh dear! Having done something similar myself, I know exactly how she felt. I never went back either.

Snacks Before Dinner Are Now Okay. Apparently.

I’m rarely surprised in this house but tonight I witnessed something I think there is no a precedent for – my wife giving one of our kids a snack before dinner.

Love to read about your family. It’s always a bright spot in my day and I get a laugh out of it.

Aww look at that adorable grin! How could you not give her an apple? So funny – at least her immune system will be awesome :)

My Bedtime Story – Flopsy And The Wolf

You ever have those nights when you can’t be buggered picking out a book to read? Tonight was one of those nights. Again. So instead of having a story read to them, I made one up.
