What is it about...


There's always one...that wayward pea that refuses to stay on the plate...that single little green sphere that manages to roll across a semi-shag carpet when nothing else can.

It was a quick tea tonight (couldn't face the thought of a mass cooking session after a rather long day at work :o( )Meat pie, carrots, mash and...yep, PEAS. I was really enjoying it too when the kamakazi pea decided to dive from the plate - tried to catch it but missed grrrrrr.

There was no way I was letting my food get cold so the hunt was put on hold until food had been consumed...that's when the fun began, huh! I had nearly given up when I finally located it about 5ft from where I had been sitting.

Have had enough of this silly game so peas are off the menu for a while...........

Mine always seem to find their way down the back of the sofa when I'm having a TV dinner!
Reminds me of the rhyme:
I eat my peas with honey
I've done it all my life
They do taste kind of funny
But it keeps them on my knife!!!

I don't eat them at all... not because I don't like the taste just because my Mum had a teacher choke to death on one during school lunch... sort of put me off and I haven't eated them since childhood! :(
