I think I'm turning into my mother. We can always rely on her to put her foot in it at least once during Sunday dinner. Yesterday we were having baked ham and I could see that Oscar was eating everything on his plate - except the ham. So to encourage him (looking back it seems so stupid) I told him that the pink meat on his plate was a piggy like Peppa Pig. Everyone round the table gasped in horror and Oscar's face crumpled. I quickly said that it wasn't Peppa Pig, just like Peppa Pig. "No, is Peppa Pig" said Oscar. pushing the entire plate away from him. So that's ham off the menu.

    I'll apologise now, but I laughed my head off when I read this! I would have loved to be a fly on the wall and can just imagine the looks on everyone's faces. Your mum must have been wondering how she would top this one! Are you offering vegetarian options next week?!
