Rinse…and repeat

Rinse...and repeatThe local haulier just dropped off a package for us. Inside was this rather smart kettle.

We don’t have much luck with kettles: Mr L always does extensive research to determine the best model but they rarely last more than two years. Our current kettle is failing to switch off and is steaming the kitchen if we forget about it. It was a replacement for one of the same model that failed just short of the guarantee expiry but it didn’t last as long as the original.

So, this season’s research shows this Kenwood to be a safe bet. We shall see.

Purple? Oh, John Lewis were selling off the purple ones cheaply – so we had free delivery and a cut price kettle. I like purple. No, really I [i]do [/i]like purple. I’m not all that keen on it in the kitchen, though! However, the price was right.

I am presently engaged in the palaver of filling, boiling, emptying and refilling… repeat several times routine.

Speaking of rinsing several times – the kettle is sitting on my recently completed Tunisian Crochet “Stashbuster” blanket not for any special effect but because I gave it a wash yesterday and it’s currently drying on my workbench.

I’m disappointed that the delivery was a kettle. I am awaiting some yarn and fibre from the USA. It left the Heathrow sort facility at midday on the 17th Jan. No sign of it here yet!

A Month in France: Nothing is Lost

I am lagging on the Month in the Country prompts, and lagging badly at that. I have a list of prompts t be caught up on and I shall be working my way through them here, or at Scattered Thoughts depending on where the post most naturally sits. I have elected to tackle the prompts not in date order necessarily but to seize upon prompts that offer me space in which to write down the things that I am feeling the need to say. Even if I need to crowbar it in. The thing is, I am going to continue to be short of time and space in which to write and so a two-for-one is useful and I hope to do as many of those as I can. Seems like a plan? … Continue readingA Month in France: Nothing is Lost
