Granny Squares decoded and a pentagon made

I'm making lots of progress with my learn to crochet this year!
I thought treble crochet was a new stitch until I realised (and read the pattern properly) that the pattern was a UK pattern and that UK treble crochet is the same as US double crochet, which is what I'd just learned! Once I'd got that sorted, the pattern was easy to follow and my new Granny ...

A persuasive writing challenge with our kids!
At the weekend, Euan decided to try a writing challenge with our girls - but not only for them, he did it with them too, which I think was part of the reason our girls enjoyed it so much! Our kids certainly enjoy when we play games and do things all together - even if it is writing!

How many people think maths is fun? My guess would be not many; but I believe as with anything, it can be made fun. Maths is all about solving problems right from the basic up to the very complicated. If maths could seen more as doing puzzles and challenges, then perhaps it would have more ...

“And then Kevin brought the dessert” Last night we had probably the best restaurant meal in Cairns in the last 10 years at C’est Bon. After being welcomed and shown to our table, our Parisien waiter Kevin explained the menu and suggested accompanying drinks in a helpful and subtle way, his service through our meal was second to none. When our Amuse Bouche arrived, the subtle seafood hint was beautiful and a glass of French bubbly with our separate starters of duck and prawn just continued the great impression. The main course of beef cheek was pull apart, cooked to perfection and the sauce with a hint of chocolate, just decadent. I had the duck a l’orange which had been recommended. It was delicious and the dried thin slice of orange was an unexpected treat. At dessert, the soufflé was cooked to perfection and the chocolate sphere something we were only sorry we did not video. When the spectacle of the dessert had fully revealed itself, the only thing more spectacular was the taste. We will definitely be back for the dessert alone. After years of trying to receive a hot cup of tea at the SAME time as the dessert, synchronicity finally happened. I would like to thank the staff of C’est Bon for a truly excellent meal.
