If a spoonful of sugar is so good it justifies having a song written about it, a bowl full of sugar must be even better. Right?

Just in case you thought last week's mess was a one off and I was exaggerating I've posted this week's effort. I'd poured some sugar into the little white souffle cup so I didn't have to bring the big sugar container out onto the balcony. A good thing I did. After they'd finished their cereal I was playing table soccer with Miss4, Master6 and Miss8 and while my back was turned Miss2 decided rather than sprinkle some sugar on her cereal she'd sprinkle some cereal on her sugar. Then eat it with her fingers.

And in case you're wondering, I haven't missed the fact these messes seem to occur primarily on the mornings Tracey is sleeping in. Clearly she'll have to stop doing that.

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.
