This is not my main blog. This is the other blog. The one that charts all the random bumps on the highway that is life. It was also my first blog, so it is, in it's own special way, still the best.

The other one, the one that I update regularly, can be found here.

That's all for now.

I've got a lover - ly bunch of...

Impossible to open big nut things. :(

Well I say bunch, what I really mean is one. I eventually had to just take the hammer to the thing and break it into pieces. Although I thought I'd drained it, this lead to a huge load of coconut water pouring out across my carpet... It worked in the end, but still - I swear those things used to be easier to open.

Still as I sat there with my broken shards of coconut shell lying all around me, I realised something else - just because the shell was broken open didn't mean that I could actually get to the coconut. I mean those things were like glued onto the shell or something :( I had to use a knife finally to pry the bits of white flesh off the shell so I could eat them. It turned out to be way more effort than it was probably worth, and I ended up with a belly ache the next day.

But over all it was fun! I can hardly wait until the next one...!

hello lovely.
try mangoes. fun in a messy kind of way but easier to eat.
also probably better for you.
but, hey, coconuts! where did you get them from them? did you win them at a fair?!

I do like a good mango, but they seem to be out of season at the moment - or at least all the ones I've got recently haven't really rippened into a wonderful slimy, messy fruit!

I just bought the coconut at the supermarket. I like to buy different fruit every so often just to surprise myself :)
