A jarring note...

Thank you to everyone who responded to my gherkin SOS. It has taken nearly a week, but I am happy to announce that we have finally got it open. I tried all your suggestions, but in the end it was simple. I went out for a night of sewing, gossiping, eating gingerbread and drinking tea, while the Boy Wonder had some friends over for sausages, beer and a violent DVD.

When I came home, feeling a little like someone from an Austen novel, the house was dark and silent except for the whirring of the dishwasher. This heartwarming note lay on the kitchen counter:


And they say romance is dead! It turns out that eating rather a lot of spicy beef sausages from the halal butcher, drinking several French beers and watching a movie about a boy who wants to be a superhero gave the Boy Wonder just the strength he needed to wrest open the lid. I'm happy to hire him out if you have a similar problem. Just be aware that he can eat quite a lot... Pin It

  6. I'm sitting at my desk, trying to look busy and efficient... except I snorted with laughter which somewhat gave the game away that I was reading your post rather than working on documents..

  7. He he....glad your problem is solved...I was going to offer suggestions but everyone else had already offered the same ones....

    I hope the gherkins lived up to your expectations.

    Buy the way, I've checked out the Orla Kiely chocolates, thanks for sharing the info (looked at them on-line that is....not checked them out in my mouth)...they look gorgeous..maybe we should start hinting for Valentines Day?!

Hello - thanks for stopping by. If this was real life I'd make you a cup of tea and open the biscuit tin, but in lieu of those things, let's have a chat anyway...
