What's Tam Been Up To?
Im not really sure how I feel about this post , last thing I want to do is make anyone feel bad about wanting or liking stuff but we’ll see how it goes I guess. The other day I walked into a mega mall perhaps for the first time in 15 years. It’s not like I don’t like them it’s just that I never really felt there was anything there I wanted or needed to buy. After all my shoes are worth $20 and my suits come from second hand shops, although I am guilty of a slight I Phone issue. I think what struck me the most about walking around was the fact that there seemed to be nothing for sale that would in anyway , shape or form help you to survive , let’s say in some kind of natural disaster or for even more than 24 hours of life maybe other than a jacket or a 5 dollar bottle of water. Regardless of whether you’re a big consumer or a minimalist that has got to worry you a little bit , because it scares the hell out of me that their contents have become so desired after , yet they have no real use. There was nothing in there as far as I could tell that came from any local producer  , just mostly all multi national stuff that doesn’t really help society out in the long term. It also made me realise that I’d forgotten all those skills that I learned from my parents , like how to grow your own food and all those cool survival techniques I learned in the scouts. I guess what  irked me more than anything was those big glossy airbrushed pics of celebs endorsing what might as well be smoke and mirrors for all its worth. I mean I like Jennifer’s movies don’t get me wrong but for someone with such an extreme liberal agenda you’d think she’d feel a little adverse to portraying that unobtainable airbrushed image to the young and impressionable. Still , money talks and bull**** walks , and I hightailed it outta there as fast as I could go ..... see you in another 15 years , maybe .

We call this the Induction Salad which isn’t I suppose the most appetising name for a salad I’ll give you that. It never had a name until Lilly Josephine was born as it was the last thing Louise ate before she woke up the next morning in all sorts of contractions craziness. As far as a babies last meal before it comes into the world I don’t think you’ll find a more nutritious one. The carrots are sautéed in honey and lightly crisp off the cauliflower in a little olive oil and balsamic vinegar. The baby roast potatoes and guacamole are the stars of the show with a pot of fresh chopped garlic for grandma who loves a clove or two - she’s safe from vampires so hopefully they won’t bother is either. Well I hope you enjoyed a little snipet into our  world of food. The kids had had fillet steak and home  fries with asparagus for their dinner - everyone eats well and we are all happy 🙌

That day you realise you must have done something right as a parent ..... but probably more likely your wife did something right but doesn’t have an @instagram account to gloat about it on 😂

Every time I open that door to the attic and stick my head inside a little part of me dies inside. I’m sure it’s a feeling many men have felt when the clutter of everyday life that we can’t quite bare to throw away becomes a burden above our heads. See the thing is I’m the only person in the family who has ever been up there , it’s quite inaccessible owing the the fact that the ladder is too short and you have to basically Nadia  Comăneci yourself up into it. It used to be so well kept but as the kids grew so did their discarded items which were piled on top of the boxes of my parenting book that never sold. To top it off my brother who is the human hoarder left London and decided to store all his boxes of coat hangers up there. I’ve now totally given up and just open the door and fling stuff up , most of which comes crashing back down on my head as rebounds off the other junk. I pray for the day that attic robbery comes into fashion and guys on a crane cut a hole in our roof and pilfer the lot ....... 🙏
