 For as long as I can remember I have called dates "cockroaches". I don't know how or when it started but I guess you could say it is a family nickname.

Now not confusing them when eating or cooking is very important.

This is a date, or more to the point these are dates.

This however is a cockroach and not something that should be eaten.

Now I bet that wasn't the post you were expecting and for the record yes that is a DEAD cockroach and yes it is on my floor. It is however now gone (you can breath a sigh of relief) and is a common occurrence (EWWWW!) due to living in Cairns, which I swear is one big cockroach nest. There presence in no way reflects on the cleanliness of my house, mind you if they like a fairly clean house then it can reflect away.


  1. Glad I am not the only one who has cockroaches in the house at the moment. Mind you I have never heard of anyone calling dates cockroaches before.

  2. I suppose if you mean dates are cockroaches, then you must be a real catch, because aren't they everywhere! We don't have them so bad down south, but I do see the occasional one, although by the looks not as big as you get them!!

  3. God I was so scared of the little bug when I first moved to Australia, took a lot of convincing before I trusted people when they said they weren't deadly haha.

  4. Cockroaches...yuck. I don't have those ones here , just the bush cockroaches which aren't as bad. They do make you shudder a bit.


Your comments add sunshine to my day ... so leave as many as you like.
