Fine food at the Chelsea Cafe

Our first ever ‘breakfast in bed’ this morning began being presented with a menu written by Chelsea (translated here):
Milo Yoghurt
Cold water (this had an ice-cube in it)
Jellytops (ice-cream)

Chelsea then took down our orders on a little pad, went away and made our breakfast, and served it to us in bed!
Fortunately she could understand her shorthand, but even to us it was obvious what ‘cowld weorta’ is!

The service was outstanding, the chef even ran in to apologise for taking so long, as ‘the butter was hard’.

Ant bites

An observation from Chelsea on ant bites (29 November 2009):

“If you’re not allergic to them, do you know what life is like? They just hurt one day then they’re gone.”

More valuable than money… fairy dust.

Chelsea lost her second tooth on Sunday afternoon. Instead of a shiny gold coin, she requested (in a note to the tooth fairy) ‘a note back and some fairy dust please’.

That’s for kids

Andy said to Chelsea: “Remember when you were little and we used to go to a cafe for a baby cino? Was it fun?”
Chelsea: “Yes.”
Andy: “Would you like us to do that again soon?”
Chelsea stopped and looked at him, eyes rolling. “Daddy, listen. ‘Baby’ cino.”
