The latest quip

As I was trying to juggle two jobs together today morn, i.e reading my new Bill Bryson whilst sipping a piping hot mug of coffee, Pratik gave me an almighty kick (he was trying for a comfortable position on the coach from which he could watch Over The Hedge) and most of said liquid fell onto the book. As I turned to give him the coldest stare of the century, he looked at me which sheepish eyes and slight alarm. Then, quick to establish a purer-than-driven-snow quality, he started: "Well it wasn't actually my fault, Mummy! If it was my finger that touched the coffee and tipped it out, I would have said, yes it is my fault but it was my toe. My toe, you see, so actually it is not my fault!"

If you figure that out, drop me a line!

Nativity Play

Pratik took part in his first Nativity Play at Infant school today. He was one of the narrators and had to say, "Inside the stable, the wisemen gave Jesus gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh." He said it oh so beautifully! Sundeep and I were sitting in the audience, beaming away! Here are some pictures and video links.

My very own sharebroker

Today morning, whilst taking a break from cooking lunch, I was shocked to find Pratik at the computer, looking at the IWEB website. As I didn't think his dad has left him on that, I quizzed P. He pointed at our IWEB mousemat and sai, "I saw this and typed I W E B, mummy!" I shoud explain that our mousemat, courtesy the shares website, has its homepage emblazoned across it!
My own budding shares dealer!

From the mouth of babes...

Today morning, Pratik woke us up as he was getting quite panicked at the wastage of daytime. When I asked him what the time was (he is rather prone to wake me up well before the crack of dawn on Saturdays), he checked his dad's mobile phone to be sure. As that contraption didn't have any numbers on it, he could be heard muttering "the big hand isn't pointing to any number, the small hand isn't pointing to any number, then what o'clock is it?" Then he turned to me and went "Mummy, it is none o'clock!"

Needless to say, I got up!


The other day, my choice of dinner menu came up for discussion. P wanted to eat fish and wondered why I did not cook him fish for dinner. Self, being a staunch vegetarian, decided to utilise this chance in educating him about the feelings of animals and what have you and wean him off meat. So I replied: "I do not like to kill animals and eat, Pratik." Pat came the reply: "You needn't kill it mummy, somebody else will kill it for us!"
