Make you rest and recover properly Panda! We don't want you ill for Christmas.
I'm in the Fidget group: awful oven that barely gets cleaned, I had to cook this weekends birthday cake for an extra 3/4hr because it refuses to get warm: whole truck smelt of cake as we drove down to the in laws as it was a literal straight out of the oven into the packed vehicle and cool down on the back seat!
Unsurprisingly we too have choosen the most expensive new units and fittings for our new kitchen (we obviously have good taste). When one sales person mentioned costings to me (scruffy jeans, scruffy shirt, hair that looks a mess no matter what you do to it, hands that look like they know their way around a lorry gearbox) I just laughed and retorted to my partner "I told you buying me a new boat for my birthday was terribly silly just before we redecorated the house. I suppose I'll just have to cut back on manicures for a few weeks if you're still wanting that Range Rover too".
As the mock argument ensued (partner was not given up his bespoke colour finish even if it did cost double the kitchen) the sales assistant suddenly became so helpful.
Incidentally my new speed boat is radio controlled and pootles around the pond with much amusement. But it doesn't pay to judge a person by their muddy shoes.
Right. Best get the kettle on. Anyone for crumpets?
