Shiny, shiny...

New breadmaker!

Yes, I did buy one before, never used it, gave it to Giles. But this time it's going to be different. In between I've tried making bread in my oven and I can't even make 1/2 the quantity I used to (3lb of flour) and I have to stay home most of the day... I plan to make it overnight tonight... here it is - ta da!

Plasterboard Fixings

My very kind builder, Ian, put up that pesky towel hook for me today - using these little gismos!

They are plasterboard fixings he brought from England. (Two sizes in the photo). You just hammer them into the wall and Bob's your uncle! Does away with all that bother - then you just use them like rawlplugs and screw your screws into them. Wanna see the finished article? Here it is:
