What I’ve learned this week

  1. Ceramic heat lamps do not glow but they are bloody hot, and that burn’s a bastard.
  2. Home-made apple pie is both breakfast of the gods, and the natural enemy of healthy eating.
  3. Compared to home-made apple pie, home-made golden syrup steamed pudding is healthy eating’s Attila the Hun.
  4. Getting up three times a night for children’s nightmares/head colds/fear of opening a closed toilet door blows just as much as it ever did, and may lead to impaired judgement on the wisdom of making desserts when one is trying to eat healthily.
