Everyday Absurdities

After placing an order with John Lewis for a new washing machine I found myself in the following position:
"Sitting on the kitchen floor, leaning against the door of the old one to keep the water in while it finishes its cycle. It's not very clean down here. I probably ought to do some housework. Or blog..." ...and recording the fact on my Facebook profile. I haven't tweeted about it yet, though I still might.
The offending machine


The housework can wait a while longer.

Looks matter

I recently posted this snap of my tools storage in a Facebook group. I love the pot they are in and the merry-go-round appearance of the plier handles. 


Of course you will have spotted the flaw in the plan... Each time I remove a tool the pot falls over.
