So I'm joining Elizabeth for T for Tuesday, by showing you my sexy new kettle. After 15 years of loyal boiling, the other one just faded out and it's quite exciting to get a replacement anything...specially when you live with a chap who can mend stuff. The other kettle had it's life extended by some months, so we're both happy - he because it took longer to part with more kettle money than I thought it would and me because I've got a new kettle that works without encouragement, swearing or resorting to the boiling of pans. I'm a 21st century gal me. That and that sexy blue light that illuminates the boiling water pleases me no end.
And here's one of the busy busy shots....good grief..you can't get the nozzle tops off glue bottles when you want to unclog them can you? You practically have to resort to prayers and pliers. So imagine my surprise, language and horror when I tried a test spot of this Cosmic Shimmer glue. The visible nozzle was clear, so I gave it a regular squeeze (as opposed to an irregular squeeze) and look - the damn thing shot off and left me with an indecent puddle. Of course, I cleaned up, took out the offending lump of glue that was just under the surface and had caused the eruption, and started in earnest.
And it happened again. Good thing I had the presence of mind to take pictures, huh! Gah, I was a little cross. I had to re-cut ten umbrellas! So there we are. Tuesday is shaping up to be a similar shambles of mixing 'real' work with 'domestic' work and craft 'work'. Hmm, whilst I'm sorting out the priorities, I may have to re-boil the kettle.
