An Interview With My Three Year Old

I thought now that E has a better command of the English language and how she can come out with some funny things, I would interview her with 20 questions and see what her replies are. This could be something that I do over a period of time to see how her answers changes. 1) What is something that Mummy says to you? I want you to be silly (this is not something I say to her) 2) What makes you happy? A bird! (She is currently looking at a bird in the garden) 3. What makes you sad? Daddy! (I can only assume it’s because he goes away a lot.) 4. What makes you laugh? Peppa Pig 5. How old are you?

And sometimes even when I do know the answer, I don’t explain because I am too tired/too grumpy /talking to someone else or just too busy, She came to talk to me whilst I was making dinner and she has asked around 37 questions already and I just want it to be quiet for one minute. ONE MINUTE! I have even attempted the lets see who can be quiet for the longest game, E clearly isn’t stupid enough to fall for that one! Here are a few from the last few days that have left The me a little flabbergasted: E: Mummy how do they get salt out of the sea? E: Mummy where does the light go when you turn it off E: What are stars made off E: Why… View Post

Ozeri Elite Chef Ceramic Kitchen Knives

If you have been reading my blog you may recall that we reviewed a Ozeri Stone Earth Pan, which I was very impressed with. We have now been sent the Ozeri Elite Chef Black Ceramic 3-Piece Knife Set to review. I was really pleased to have the opportunity to review these knives, I am always keen to discover good quality long-lasting products for the kitchen and knives are one of the most used kitchen utensils in our house. When I opened the box I was instantly impressed, the packing is very attractive, and the knives themselves are very stylish, sleek and elegant. I know that may be a funny way to describe knives, but I really haven’t seen nicer looking knives before. The 3-pc Knife Set features three ultra-sharp 100% black ceramic knives that include: 3″ paring knife, a 5″ slicing knife, and a 6″ chef’s knife. They also come with a an… View Post
