I was so excited about drawing and painting with Miss5 at her prep's Father's Day evening I asked Tracey to pick up some more paints and pens yesterday.

I assume it was Tracey's keen sense of money-pinching which led her to combine my request and bring home paint pens.

Keen to see how well they work, Tracey set up Miss2 at the table for some art and craft. Unfortunately the lid was a little overzealous about it's job and Tracey needed to apply some elbow grease to get it off. The result was some spontaneous Braveheart-like face painting.

Tracey saw the funny side but Miss2, not so much. "Mummy's nose!" she screamed, racing off in a tither. She thought her mummy had broken her nose.

Given her earlier effort a few days ago, it just doesn't seem to be Tracey's week.

I'm just glad she took a photo this time :)

Luckily Tracey always works with safety goggles in place

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.
