Yo ho ho

Fri 1st Jun 2007 by Ben Palmer.

We've just tucked into a cheese and bacon quiche, which went down really well. The veg is a bit more of a struggle, particularly with Emily.

While we were staying with Granny Min earlier in the week, Emily developed an addiction to a cartoon version of Treasure Island, watching it back to back as often as she could, and is now fixated with pirates.

Cue scurvy terror stories from Daddy. “The pirates got really ill because they didn't have any vegetables to eat, but we're lucky, we have and broccoli is one of the best vegetables you can eat.”

Harry then told us all about how the pirates drank lots of rum which also made them ill, because “Rum is a fainting drink like wine, isn't that right, Daddy?”

Absolutely. The broccoli's all gone too.
