Good Old Jamie Oliver

Dear Mum,

It’s been a big couple of days for Joshua. He lost his first tooth yesterday afternoon and called me up specially to tell me, on his way back from school. I couldn’t believe it, he’s only five! But I guess he’s just on the earlier side of the range. It’s one of the two teeth he grew first and the other one is seriously wobbly.

At tea time yesterday we were having pasta in tomato sauce (done in the slow cooker, thank you Deanne). It had tinned chopped tomatoes in it, as well as some whole cherry tom’s. Josh picked one of them up and asked what it was, we told him and said he could try it, or put it on my plate. He looked at it for a moment, then nibbled the end, after which he stuck the whole thing in, then asked if he could have more next time we make it. Amazing!

Today was Food Revolution Day at school, a Jamie Oliver driven healthy food initiative. The kids had to take some bits and pieces in, plus some money to pay for ingredients. They made sandwiches (using the ingredients from the picture below) and then ate them. Joshua had all but a little bit, which he brought home to show us. He also now has some exciting ideas for sarnies for school, including cream cheese, hummus and red peppers.

Swimming for Joshy tomorrow, I’m on call so no other major plans. Although we may be booking a weekend away. More about that another time though.

Love

Dan

Happy Australia Day

Dear Mum,

Today was Australia Day! We started out by arriving at Bull Creek Park a little too late this morning, just as all the festivities were being packed away, however Joshua got to look at the ducks in the pond and follow a little man-made stream to see where it started.

Julie and Rick are still away, getting back tomorrow so it’s quiet at home just now, we had sandwiches for lunch, just cheese for Josh, halloumi and sun-dried tomato for Deanne and I. This afternoon Joshua and Deanne both had a nap 🙂 So I did a bit of housework and started making a picnic tea, once they were up and sorted we headed out towards the river, there were fireworks so we had our food and then went down to a little beach where Joshy danced to the music which they play on one of the radio stations to accompany the fireworks, he had a great time.

Back home and he was a little reluctant to have his shower/hairwash but eventually calmed down and then had chapter six of Pooh (again), he loves that book, this is the second time through it.

Bank holiday tomorrow, not sure what we’re doing yet.

Love

Dan
