Fail, fail again, fail better.
Brussel sprouts for dinner with some slivers of turkey. Both bowls licked until they shine. Bob eats slowly, savouring every mouthful. Sophie adopts a more industrial approach. Six gulps and its gone. She does her plaintive ' you've forgotten to feed me ' routine. When this doesn't work she tries to steal some of her brothers food. This also doesn't work. As a final resort she does her multi-octave dying diva act. This involves lying on her back with her feet in the air while simultaneously howling. She is ignored. There may be peace on earth but with Sophie around you can be sure there's no peace in the kitchen.
