“I’m my own Grandpa!”

Many, many years ago when I was twenty-three.
I was married to a widow who was pretty as could be.
This widow had a grown-up daughter who had hair of red
My father fell in love with her and soon they too were wed

This made my dad my son-in-law and really changed my life
For now my daughter was my mother, ’cause she was my father’s wife
And to complicate the matter, even though it brought me joy
I soon became the father of a bouncing baby boy

My little baby then became a brother-in-law to dad
And so became my uncle, though it made me very sad
For if he were my uncle, then that also made him brother
Of the widow’s grownup daughter, who was of course my step-mother

Father’s wife then had a son who kept them on the run
And he became my grandchild, for he was my daughter’s son
My wife is now my mother’s mother and it makes me blue
Because although she is my wife, she’s my grandmother too

Now if my wife is my grandmother, then I’m her grandchild
And every time I think of it, it nearly drives me wild
‘Cause now I have become the strangest ‘case you ever saw
As husband of my grandmother, I am my own grandpa

I’m my own grandpa, I’m my own grandpa
It sounds funny, I know but it really is so
I’m my own grandpa

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!

Idea from Pinterest


Just Hummus – Roasted kumara & butternut


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!
