    Had to share this...

    She Who Must Be Obeyed just put the kettle on to make us both a cup of coffee.

    Sadly, having placed two mugs on the worktop and after adding a spoonful of Nescafe to each, she has now poured the contents of the kettle into the almost-new jar of Nescafe.

    That's it - as I said - just had to share.

    I have this image of you chuckling after posting it, and she then slowly pours the entire jar over you

      Boiling water & Lobsters... they don't mix! Tread carefully lad, tread carefully...

      We all have "senior moments" as time rolls on... Mrs Lodger (Well, my landlady technically..) found her missing reading glasses in the freezer once.. (& no it wasn't me..)

        If it makes her feel any better, I once placed an electric kettle on a gas hob and lit it.

        I was pregnant at the time, though.

          Poor Mrsthelobster, glad she wasn't injured. Was she busy multi-tasking another errand for you at the time?

            I bet she did it herself - so that she could give you one of her cold stares...be good artful..

              I'm a big fan of yours MTG, but claiming you see through your stomach is a stretch (mark) of the imagination.

              Although if I were to defend you in court anecdotal evidence could be provided as per the current s21 dispute e.g naval contempation, command etc etc - worth a try eh?

                Stop press: we've now worked by trial and error that the resulting jar of thick brown gloop can be used satisfactorily at a rate of 1.5 teaspoonfuls per cup of coffee...

                  I'll share this one with you.

                  I was telling my mother how depressed we were about the current price of heating oil - we've just forked out £686 to fill our tank (almost as much as her first house cost, apparently, but that was a long time ago).

                  Anyway, she told me that she was glad I'd warned her about the price hike, and how she definitely wouldn't be using that oil-filled radiator we'd given her for emergencies (she has gas-fired heating normally) until the price of oil comes down.

                      Aw, bless.

                      I think thats true of the older generation, speaking from my own point of view and having to deal with my Grandmother this week. She refused a zimmer and toilet frame this week, after asking how much they were worth and not realising she wouldn't have to pay for them!!

                      I have to confess, when I worked in sales I used to absolutely love valuing houses for pensioners, and people who had bought their houses for what your Mum did. Not because I under priced (before anyone gets that in ), but to see the look of genuine surprise, shock, happiness on their faces (then have to sit for 30 mins after, drinking tea and biscuits, proving with comparables that I hadn't made a mistake!). Such a nice change from ....... well mines got a downstairs loo and that means it must be worth about 30K more than one thats just sold two doors down.

                        I'm wondering how many of you voted for brexit and would you change your mind if you had the chance ? . I didn't vote and I still wouldn't be sure if I would choose leave or remain if we had another chance...

                        I don't personally see anything wrong with the EU notion of free movement.
                        You're free to move to work anywhere, and, provided you're employed, you're entitled to all of the same benefits as a national of the country you're working in.

                        OK so Ram you have tempted me very briefly back in. People used to come and work here BEFORE we joined the EU on work visas. They would come for farm work (family experience of this) from not only the EU but across the world. Getting labour if it is needed is not a problem. The difference is that on...

                        The flaw in that argument is that there is currently negative unemployment in the UK.

                        There are thousands of unfilled jobs, 50,000 in the NHS alone (mostly for non medical positions) and the number of unemployed people is so low that its made up of people who can't or won't work (plus the...

                        Well, the building sites will eventually have British workers on them ( more jobs for the indigenous people ).
                        No more closing down of bus companies because they replaced bus drivers with foreigners who could not read road signs, which made them dangerous drivers ( look it up) so more jobs for...

                        I'm for a future where the Uk's government, and the voting public in the UK, can directly influence our future and we retain as many freedoms as possible and have the best possible trade opportunities.

                        This means remaining in the EU.

                        I give up! You either get it or you don't. You are either for a future of our choice or a future of choices made by a super-expensive group of non- accountable bureaucrats. As I say, I give up. For now....

                        So you'll know that many businesses have narrow profit margins and/or rely on deliveries being on time (both into and out of the business).
                        Most businesses can cope with occasional interruptions in supply (e.g. a few days as a result of weather/strikes), although they may take a financial hit...
