Inspired by Corvus’s Sunday Song post, I thought I’d post a link to the song I can’t stop listening to right now, it’s by Jake Morley, it’s a few month’s old but new to me and it ‘speaks to me’ on so many levels (for a start – and on a shallowish level – I have dodgy feet, that are currently, due to lots of surgery in my 20s, reasonably ok feet, but I know full well that ‘ok’ may not last, maybe that’s one of the reasons why I like this song so much on a semi-subconscious level, as I realised recently that’s it’s now over 10 years since my last foot surgery and although the recovery time from the surgeries was tough, I can do so much more without being in pain than I thought I’d be able to do in my 20s). Anyway, this was not meant to be a post about my feet! Just enjoy the good song below (which isn’t really about feet) ↓
Can highly recommend the entire album , of which I also particularly love the title track Many Fish to Fry.

I have a lot of shifts at the weekend, so Mr. Lacer does more of his share of the cooking, although the kids have started to chip in to. Last weekend Girl Lacer made lunch completely on her own (sandwiches), this weekend Boy Lacer wanted to make lunch. Now obviously this required a little bit more supervision and luckily I don’t work over Sunday lunch times (unlike Saturday lunch time), so I helped out this time, as did Girl Lacer.
He chose Barbecue Dippers from his Cooking for Boys book; chicken drumsticks with vegetable skewers, all coated in a homemade barbecue sauce. The kids helped make the sauce and assembled the veg skewers and brushed the skewers with the sauce, Girl Lacer also helped brush the barbecue sauce onto the chicken (which later prompted the question on how they got chicken legs, “Did they wait for the chicken to die?”, ummm no, we explained that we made sure we got our meat from a supermarket who looked after their chickens and made sure they didn’t suffer, but so waiting for the inevitable vegetarianism at some point).
Anyway the result was lovely, particularly the homemade sauce (and now the kids know what goes into barbecue sauce as well, Girl Lacer was gob smacked that honey goes into barbecue sauce, particularly as she loves barbecue sauce yet hates honey.
