Stay calm, it’s sunny

Sunday Tasmanian - - News -

THEY all eat their ve­g­ies, and dessert is saved for spe­cial oc­ca­sions.

In the Cox fam­ily, of Clare­mont, treats have a place – but the cakes and lol­lies are oc­ca­sional foods and not a reg­u­lar oc­cur­rence.

“I try not to get too stressed out about the is­sue of treats,” said Kerri Cox, who has three sons.

“They are ‘some­times’ foods for us, some­thing we might have every now and then.

“We don’t have dessert every night, just oc­ca­sion­ally if it’s a spe­cial oc­ca­sion.”

She said her three boys were all dif­fer­ent in their eat­ing habits, but she made sure they all tried some veg­eta­bles with din­ner.

The el­dest, 11-year-old Jesse, loves his meat, but still tries his veg­eta­bles.

The youngest, two-year- old Joel, has typ­i­cal tod­dler habits.

“He picks at food, but he at least tries it.”

And the mid­dle son, seven-year-old Nate, is crazy about his ve­g­ies.

“He just loves his veg­eta­bles – he gob­bles up broc­coli and loves it.” HOBARTIANS can ex­pect some weather a bit more com­mon to Novem­ber in com­ing days, fol­low­ing a whirl­wind 48 hours of ex­treme winds and snow on Mt Welling­ton.

Af­ter tem­per­a­tures reached 26C on Fri­day, Ho­bart woke to find a blan­ket of snow as low as 700m on Mt Welling­ton.

Bureau of Me­te­o­rol­ogy fore­caster Rachel McIn­er­ney said some calmer con­di­tions were on the way. “Ev­ery­thing has set­tled down now and to­day a north-west­erly flow will move over the state bring­ing a few gusts of wind but nowhere near as strong as what we’ve been ex­pe­ri­enc­ing,” she said.

Ho­bart is ex­pect­ing a sunny 17C to­day and 21C tomorrow.
