  2. I bought my best friend a left-handed pencil sharpener once - she couldn't believe how easy sharpening a pencil could be!

  3. I didn't know bread knives were 'handed'...... Must go and look at mine now, and see if I can spot the difference..

    1. It's quite obvious when you compare the two.

  4. My sister-in-law gave my husband a new bread knife for his birthday. She was raving about how sharp this particular brand of knife is. Holy cow. It not only slices bread like butter, it slices up my cutting board and my dish cloths and fingers too! Hope you enjoy your new knife and that it's not quite as lethal.

  5. Your Quince is way ahead of ours and your mint is flourishing well. We have had so little rain things have slowed down

  6. Even though I am a lefty I am not sure I could use a left handed bread knife! One of the perks of being ambidextrous I suppose.....

  7. Your Easter looked sunnier than ours - just glad I cut all my tulips and brought them in in one huge vaseful before the hail and thunder got them!

  8. I didn’t know those knives were available - must check them out. I got a left handed cheque book - that transformed my life.

  12. Sue, your garden grows very well indeed. The quince blossom is an exquisite color. May I also compliment you on what's been baking around your place.

    And finally, I am happy to tell you that I am also left-handed, and aware of what a true difference it make having implements and arrangements that weren't made for those folks who tend to use their other hand.

  13. Left handed bread knife? Really? My daughter is a leftie, perhaps this is part of the reason she butchers bread....

  14. Two out of four of us are left handed. I am ashamed to say that I have made little concession to this fact in the purchasing of implements although I think there were fewer things available. Even left handed scissors were hard to come by. It suits the Japanese student very well though!
