Tea-drinker par excellence

Eat your destiny!

No, it's not my New Year motto, nor necessarily some bizarre manga product. I was round my Stepmum's in Colchester on Friday, My Dad and the three kids were there too. The weather conditions were pretty much the worst I have ever seen in the UK. Snow underfoot which I usually enjoy but a bitter wind blowing not snow but small pieces of ice horizontally right into your face can never be pleasant.

So we battened down the hatches, ate plenty and gassed away five hours. Daniel, the middle kid, aged between 4 and 5 was making up stories of how he came to have 3 Batman DVDs. Every now and then he would just shout out "Eat Your Destiny" but we never got to the bottom of where he had heard it.
