Father’s Day 2014

Hello hello,

Happy Father’s Day to all the amazing dads out there, especially the two in my life!


Our day started with a huge downpour (ok Sydney, enough rain already) and a bit of this…


Which went down a treat, even though C does better crepes than me. But I had Nutella, which when combined with banana in a crepe can take one back to the streets of Paris on a sunny June afternoon in 2004. Ahh!

By the way, did you hear that Nutella is currently experiencing a worldwide shortage?

Thanks to a nasty frost in Turkey that has wiped out 70 percent of this year’s hazelnut crop. Cue panic… Stock up now peeps!

Back to Father’s Day… The Shirts and undies were greatly appreciated as was the pre-school decorated box of choccies and laminated watercolour painting of ‘daddy and me’.

And my dad was pretty happy with his Bunnings voucher, which he used to buy 2 soft close toilet seats, 2 bags of cow manure (sense a theme here?) and a bag of potting mix for the veggie garden. Onya dad! Let us know how those carrots grow.

The grey skies cleared and the arvo was spent at the playground. C squeezed in a gym session and a run which makes for one happy, tired dad.


How did you spend Father’s Day?

Any pressies as good as a soft close toilet seat?

How do you do Nutella? Spread? Spoon straight up?

And there you have it… my first blog post! 5 years in the making with a few distractions along the way.

 Clever cookie school of blog starts tomorrow. Freaking out a small bit 🙂

  1. I only bought the toilet seat so I wouldn’t fall too much behind the Morrows, besides, I fitted one for “her indoors” and she loves it!!
