Yes Henry, the kettle's gone, though it wasn't Andy, it was PoP! 'PoP!' goes my kettle.
I set it to boil and after a while I thought it strange I hadn't heard the button click and then I heard the PoP! I was too afraid to boil it again to see if it was OK, so I used my rubber gloves to unplug it and then threw it away. Yes, Girls' Electrickery. We have a device called a Cable PI here, and it didn't alert me to any electrical emergency, so that's comforting!!
I bought a new kettle, virtually the same. I am puzzled by their cup measurements: 10 cups measure 1.8 litres. For me, a cup is 250m at least when I have a cup of tea and 180ml is just not enough. Still, it is nice to be able to boil 360ml of water in one minute. Because let's face it, why would I want to waste any more of my precious time waiting for the kettle to boil?? I obviously have far more important and urgent things to do. Boiling speed was not a criterion for choosing a new kettle.
Now I have had to watch Hugh Grant and his special dancing four, five, six times in a row.
I meant to rest today, but then:
- I walked The Labradors in the teeming rain
- We popped into town to get some money
- Which I dropped off as an errand
- We walked to the supermarket
- Had 'breakfast' about 11-30 whereupon the 'PoP! happened
- I went to I've Been Kidnapped By K Mart to buy a kettle
- Oops, then I needed more drugs from the chemist
- So finally I am home and it is 4pm
Now I might go to bed for a nap, or just write today off and stay in bed tomorrow!!! Of course it has stopped raining torrentiallly, and the rhythm of the rain on the roof is such a good soporific. I will knit this week's hat #2 and catch up on some more Chuck. I make myself get up at every ad break, instead of fast forwarding, and reply to some comments. Time for another cup of tea I think.
