Check out my rump

Highlight of my week is checking out the weekly supermarket catalogues. Upsets Tracey sometimes though, because it ties up the bathroom for so long. Happily, local supermarket having a special on rump steak this week - $5.99/kg for whole uncut. So we grabbed ourselves an impressive $53 slab and I've been carving it up for the last hour.

While I sliced we cooked ourselves a chunk and I expect to finish chewing it sometime tomorrow. But what do you expect for $6 a kilo?

Not a problem though because I've diced the whole lot up for stews, stir fries and casseroles. Tracey is the queen of the slow cooker.

About Me

My photo

Bruce Devereaux is one of the nicest people he knows. When not at work he enjoys reading, writing, hiding from his children and not changing nappies.


His career, and if we used the term any more loosely an e might fall out, has included a gardener, a personal lender, a console operator, a stop/go man (not as big a bludge as you might think but great if you’re into sunburn, abuse and varicose veins), a cleaner of banks and pubs and, for a very brief period, a door to door salesman (until the last door he knocked on was answered by a very scary woman with tremendously hairy legs).


Bruce Devereaux currently works as a forty-five-year-old award winning customer service officer (glass statuette available upon request) for the Bank of Queensland and as a very casual employee for Corrective Services. He likes to believe he excels at both but then he has always been prone to exaggeration.


His favourite colour is green, with a picture of Dame Nellie Melba on one side and General Sir John Monash on the other. His favourite flower is self-raising.

 If you see him around town, call his wife immediately - he's probably snuck out and left her alone with all the kids.
