My salad dressing days

1. The swanky new dishwasher on its rinse cycle sounds *just* like the Eurostar entering the Channel Tunnel.

2. It is not possible effortlessly to bash the compressed coffee grains into the bin in the style of a Starbucks barista with our swanky new espresso machine. Grrr.

3. It’s a near miracle we were around to enjoy Christmas at all given that the rubber transformer on the rope lights began to melt just days beforehand.

4. Isabel Dalhousie is impossibly twee for a woman in her early 40s. Just what kind of young friends does Alexander McCall Smith have?

5. I am open-minded about the prospect of a Thai green turkey curry.

6. Fifty per cent of my children are going to be disappointed on or around 3 July next year, given that my daughter wants a girl cousin and my son wants a boy cousin.

7. I am stepping back on the applique bandwagon (because it’s easier on the waistline than working my way through Tamasin Day-Lewis’ tarts).

8. I am almost persuaded that your late 30s is the time to invest in some rollerblades.

Mmm. Thai green turkey curry. Sweet.

Interesting use of the word “invest”…

Does your coffee holder have a little plastic clip on it ? If so, this holds the internal coffee filter in, and you can bang quite smartly, and all the coffee should tip in, without the coffee filter thingie following it. Alternatively, your problem may be completely different to the one I used to have, in which case, I’ll shut up.

And…Yes, definitely the roller-blades. Then I won’t feel like such a freak, having very public, private, lessons in a London park, knowing there’s another woman in her late 30s getting used to skates/blades too.
