It's Broken, Baby

Saturday, 18 December 2010


Christmas spirit is a little thin on the ground here this morning.
 Unlike the snow which is about 3 inches deep.
 C now has to go out in it. Into Worcester to Past Times to buy me another bauble. It was his fault you see, he pulled the tree over. Many baubles fell off but this was the only one that broke because it was the only one made of glass and not plastic.

  1. No breakages here, all the glass baubles have stayed packed up for the last 8 years. We were meant to be in Hereford now, but decided not to risk it because of the snow. Sister might have to do with a promise for a Christmas present and I get to clean the bathroom instead.
    Put a pencil horizontally between your teeth and don't let your lips touch it - it makes you force a smile and causes you to feel better!

  2. Oh Sue! That's such a shame. I hope he gets you another and gets back to you safely (where you can give him a hard time ;o) x

  5. Hmmmmmmmm, oops wouldn't be my first word either!!!!
    Clumsy clod, fancy pulling the tree over, being silly was he!! Oh well penance paid, he had to go out in the snow and cold, whilst you stayed in the warm.

  8. It does doesn't it Sue? Gave me a chance to try out my new lens which allows me to use a really wide aperture (f1.8) to get very shallow depth of field. Get me- photo geek :o)

    C walked into town with elder son and purchased a replacement. Must remember to pack it away carefully after Christmas.

    I have very few plastic baubles, the glass ones are so much prettier and their fragility appeals to me. We've had a few breakages, but not that many and I've still got a lot of baubles from the early eighties.

    I even have a beautiful huge hand blown one that we brought back from the Czech Republic several years ago. It had it's own glass stand but that broke so I found a metal one for it.

  10. Thanks for letting me know where you got it from. I MUST have one. So much snow, can you believe we have none in Knaresborough?

  12. Oh what a shame - I hope you have a new one now. Our glass baubles have been packed away for the last 10 years - though when my youngest is 10 I hope they will have reappeared......though maybe I should take note that it was your husband not your children that led to its untimely demise!
