Back to the grind

September 5, 2012

I should have said a lot more about the pineapple cutter yesterday because the pictures don’t really show the wonder of the device. It is a very clever thing. One of those gadgets that you don’t think you need until you see it in action, and then you marvel at life without one.

The body of  the pineapple is pulled from its skin and core leaving only the succulent bits you want to eat which are at the same time sliced into bite-sized pieces. There’s also some juice left in the bottom of the “cup”   – which itself could be used as a container for the sliced pineapple – if it hung around that long that is. Truly, a work of genius.


I’ll stop now because Boo is already accusing me of getting a back hander – chance would be a fine thing.

Today was the first day of school for Arlo and Logan – and lots of others.

Our boys were washed and scrubbed and wearing clean clothes – ironed in Arlo’s case – and I ushered them into the garden for a photograph.

It’s a bit sad because soon the school is to have a uniform after having been without one for 10 years. The kids looked great this morning as they walked to school.

In a couple of weeks they’ll all be dressed in polyester. It’ll end in tears.

The sun was shining and it was warm. Must be the pineapple.
