Last night I was preparing dinner, and was making a rather favourite baked carrot dish.
I went out to our little herb pots to get some chives.  
Brought the chives inside... and sniffed them... cos I love the smell of fresh chives.

And ... umm.... I said to Bex "This does not smell like chives, it smells like grass!"

Bex said "No, it's chives.  Steve has been using them in the dishes he's been cooking for us".

Then she sniffed the chives too... and agreed with me!

We have been eating grass !!!

I think I will go out today and buy some more CHIVE plants.  *smiles*

Other things on the agenda today?  More titivating ... I want to paint the 'feature' wall in the spare bedroom before I move a bed in there.  It won't be a feature wall anymore, I'm going to paint it the same colour as the rest of the house.  Off White/light sand.

KATE IN WELLY:  I know it's not you who leaves bitchy comments!  Relax Chick... and have a lovely day.

LOSE2LIVE: Oh you smart arse!!!  Grass Vs crackers?   Crackers WIN!  I didn't know I was eating grass, whereas you  did know you were trying to look through the holes in ya crackers! na na nah nah.


  1. For one moment I thought they looked like carnation leaves !!

  2. Moochus-grassie-arse... a bit of Spanish for you.

    OMG I can't believe you guys have been eating grass! That's hilarious!!

    Oh well, cats and dogs eat it for digestion so it can't be too bad! Hee hee...

    Oh that has made my morning!


  3. HAHA, that is freaking hilarious. I certainly hope it is a exotic species and not just boring old lawn grass.
    Congrats on the move. I understand about doing stuff for your kids. When I first had Connor (Oldest) Andrew's step daughter moved in with us for a while we already had a full house as both my step sons were at home with us too and we moved into the lounge. it is just what you do :)

    Hey you could always send your big clothes down to someone who's still big but getting smaller. Another couple of stone and I could maybe fit your clothes lol.

  10. No wonder you are losing so much weight! I imagine the grass totally explodes your intestinal system...

  11. Too funny on eating the grass!

  12. That is so hilarious that grass has been your 'secret' herb. I think you're smoking it wrong :)

  13. Maybe Steve has something with the grass, you have been saying how great his meals taste :-)

  14. That is so funny - I know I shouldn't laugh but I couldn't help myself. Thank goodness I am in the office by myself !
