Your 2012 Five A Day - January

One of the things I like to do to start each year is choose a calender to go on the side of my fridge. It helps me to keep relatively organised, provides a sense of anticipation for upcoming events (like Mum will be here in 46 sleeps) and offers a 'mark' for the new chapter each new year brings, no matter how much I 'bah humbug' about resolutions and the like.

Anyway I had not managed to do this last year and so ventured out on New Year's Day to the local Martin's to find the perfect addition to the Gidday HQ Frigidaire. Something unexpected, a little quirky and potentially irreverent.

I was home ten minutes later, grinning and barely through the door before my new purchase was whipped out of its plastic wrapping.

Ladies and gents, I give you your rebellious Five A Day for 2012...Violent Veg!

So in the spirit of keeping the family up to date with my mental (and I use the word loosely) state about the year ahead, I took a pic of 'January' and uploaded on Facebook...

Caption: Colin knew he was in a rough pub when he noticed the pea on the floor which the even more irreverent, anti-small-green-veg-etarian Lil Chicky, responded:

Now how is she going to get her five a day if she keeps tossing her greens away?

And so the year begins...
