Kids are back at school today after two weeks of winter holiday - and of course the weather is lovely. I'm really enjoying the warmth and fresh air after several weeks of chilly dampness.
So what did I do with my first day of peace? Went to the supermarket of course (been avoiding it with the children in tow). My local Pak n Save is in an area with a large and varied migrant population, I find it's meat section fascinating - today they had pigs heads, goat meat, hogget roasts, and ready-mixed pork and veal mince (for bolognese, I'm guessing). Much more fun than lamb chops and steak. ( I did buy some mince, but passed on the rest).
And then I spotted this guy:
Made my day!
On the subject of mohawks, My 6 year old has decided he wants one - not a wussy David Beckham one, but a full on technicoloured punk rock spikey one. "Like a rock star". Meanwhile my 9 year old tells me she belongs to the Justin Bieber Resistance.
I love my children.
