House Hippo Lunch

Have you ever seen this commercial?
I LOVE it!
"It's night time in a kitchen just like yours; all is quiet, or is it?"
"The North American house hippo is found throughout Canada and the Eastern United States. House hippos are very timid creatures and they are rarely seen, but they will defend their territory if provoked. They come out at night to search for food, water, and materials for their nests."
"The favourite foods of the house hippo are chips, raisins and the crumbs from peanut butter on toast."
"They build their nests in bedroom closets using lost mittens, dryer lint and bits of string. The nests have to be very soft and warm; house hippos sleep about 16 hours a day."
That looked really real, but you knew it couldn't be true, didn't you? That's why it's good to think about what you're watching on TV, and ask questions, kind of like you just did.

As you may have noticed,
We've got a new lunch container!
This one's made by tupperware, and I'll let you know how it turns out :)

So, yeah, I'm still sick.  I'd planned this one for a few days
so it didn't require a whole lot of effort
Sadly, the whole week is turning out to be a bit of a write-off :/
Next week will be better!
