Fresh (almost) daily from Julie Barrett

Just managed to break a large container FULL of water. Fortunately, I was out on the patio when it happened. Yet it was such an idiotic mistake that James May penalized me five minutes.

Yes, I was doing a Man Task. Gender politics aside, it was a Task that had to be done sooner rather than later. Husband is off Earning Wages, otherwise he'd have taken care of it. When the container shattered and I screamed an expletive, Son wandered out on the patio and asked if I was okay. Upon hearing my affirmative answer, he sauntered back indoors, leaving me with wet jeans up to my knees and a mess of glass to clean up. And the Task to perform again. Thanks, I think.

The Task has been performed. Time for a soothing cuppa.
