Quote of the Month – Michael Caine

I was rehearsing a play, and there was a scene that went on before me, then I had to come in the door. They rehearsed the scene, and one of the actors had thrown a chair at the other one. It landed right in front of the door where I came in. I opened the door and then rather lamely, I said to the producer who was sitting out in the stalls,’Well, look, I can’t get in. There’s a chair in my way.’ He said,’Well, use the difficulty.’ So I said ‘What do you mean, use the difficulty?’ He said ‘Well, if it’s a drama, pick it up and smash it. If it’s a comedy, fall over it.’ This was a line for me for life: Always use the difficulty.

Pizza night with Black Box!

We received a black box, and in it there were these 2 things, Tegel Meal Maker, and Turkish Bread Pizza Bases. Putting them together only seemed obvious.20150306_171727

So a chicken, cranberry etc pizza, and a pepperoni one :)

Wow. Just wow! Those pizza bases are the most beautiful, crisp, but not hard, firm enough to eat like a normal pizza (I was expecting it to sag as it was so thin). Really yummy. This is certainly our new pizza bases that we will be buying!

The Tegal Meal Makers are made from 100% New Zealand chicken and available in Sliced Smoked Chicken, Sliced Roast Chicken, and Shredded Roast Chicken. A really quick easy thing to use, as you can throw it on pizza, chuck it in a salad, mix it in your pasta – anything you want!

Just Hummus – Roasted kumara & butternut

20150305_210956

A fantastically smooth, very tasty treat here – that even has the heart tick! This is a new flavour for us, roasted kumara and butternut. It didn’t appeal to me at all, but knowing how much I love other flavours, I gave it a go.

I was blown away – this is the most tasty, by far! My new favourite. It is smooth, and slightly spicy, but in a lovely way. Great with crackers, chips, and I’m going to be using it on my sandwich tomorrow – yum!

ANZ Sucks

So having been given some Bonus Bonds for the kids, I went to ANZ to get it put into their name.

After standing in queue for 20 minutes waiting to be served, a lovely young lady was finally free.

Placing the bonus bonds on the counter, I say that I’ve been given these, and need to show ID to get them put into their name. She hands me Bond Transfer forms and tells me that I need to get a signature from the person giving them to us. I say, that can’t be right, the form clearly states they have been purchased, and are to be put into this persons name.

After standing there for 20 minutes, with her on the phone calling the Bond centre 3 times – as she informs me, they don’t actually do Bonus Bonds, they do them for someone else – she tells me to come back on Monday.

I will never, repeat, never, step foot inside ANZ Sylvia Park again. What abysmal service.
