Books and Ice Cream


Good morning all, it is a nice Sunday morning here in my part of the world. Yesterday I was going to post but just didn't feel like it,so I didn't, I did, however, read 24 blogs then I deleted the rest out of my inbox.

The girls are coming for lunch today, we are having home-made chicken tenders and potato bake, Kathy will be here first around 9ish and Jess, Kelli and the boys should be here by around 11ish.

Last night for some reason Leo woke up around 2am and was awake for about an hour or so, but he was good he just stayed in bed playing and talking to me and papa even though both of us were still asleep.

I found dad a birthday present, a book about the history of Australia I was at the post office on Friday and saw it and thought dad would like this so I got it.

You know when I was a child I never saw dad with a book and when he first retired he was always at the computer but since he had cancer in 2009 he has taken to reading a lot. In fact you will see dad reading pretty much every day, I said as much to him yesterday when I dropped off his present. I think it is because reading is an easy hobby and so relaxing as well.

Dad doesn't read fiction books though he only likes books about history, I have given him a number of books the last couple of years.

ON another topic who thinks ice cream is ok for breakfast, on Friday I gave Blain an ice cream for breakfast and this morning I am allowing Leo to have ice cream for breakfast as well. When my girls were little I often let them have ice cream for breakfast, even though now those same girls will give me a look when I allow their child to have ice cream for breakfast.


Well that is all for this post, hope everyone is having a great day.

  1. I've never had ice cream for breakfast, but I think it's a grandma's prerogative to serve ice cream for breakfast.

  2. My favorite books to read are history books. I don't like to read books about current affairs. Whether written from the left or right perspective, they usually contain a lot of shouting and are way depressing.
    I'd much rather read about the sack of Rome.
    All those togas they wore kept their sacks comfortable.
    Ooh, too soon?

    1. I also like history books but at this stage in my life I am still into fiction but I am sure that will change when I am older as I am very much like my dad

  4. Nothing wrong in having icecream for breakfast. The 2 year old would have it every meal is he was permitted.
    It's good that reading passes his time of day.

  5. I've never considered Ice Cream a breakfast food, but I suppose as long as it isn't that glow in the dark $220 a scoop jellyfish ice cream I saw on my feed yesterday, I guess it's okay.
