spinach, tomato and chick pea curry

Any guest staying here quickly discovers the inflatable bed is a kiss of death.

It's not that it goes down during the night, or is uncomfortable, or is even too small - it's fairly comfortable and is a bog-standard inflatable. No, no - It's just its very presence guarantees an early wake-up call from a small blonde boy wanting to either bounce up and down on it OR make a den out of it. It's my mum's first experience of this phenomenon, but she deals with it so well we don't have to get up for a long time. Oh hurrah!

To thank her, I first lock us all out of the house on our way to the farmer's market, and then Milo makes her stand around in a freezing playground whilst he pushes me on the roundabout. It was cool seeing her though, and monkey loved it.

After lunch mum races the snow home and we race everyone else to Waitrose before the big Wales-New Zealand clash. Once again, I don't know why we bother. At least we scored this time I suppose... *sigh* At least Ana jollies things along with a pre-dinner starter of smoked salmon on rye bread with horseradish - delish!

With monkey in bed, and feeling slightly drunk/disappointed we decide to have a quick, hearty curry before slumping in front of the telly. Voila!

Food of the Milos
A combination of the cold and extreme inflatable-based activity give Milo a fairly hearty appetite today: Nibbles for first breakfast, chocolate (milo) porridge for breakfast and then a muffin and babyccino. Thomas the Tank Engine pasta shapes on toast for lunch, followed by the usual snacking in the trolley around Waitrose, and then a mighty plate of sausages, broccoli, mini carrots, two yoghurts and a satsuma. Aye caramba!
