Rice or mats

I nearly lost the following post, I don't know what happened but thankfully because blogger was playing up I had copied it to paste it again and thankfully after half an hour of wondering why my last post was my latest post despite republishing and refreshing nothing was showing up. What's that annoying phrase that people say to you when something like this happens oh yeah 'did you back-up'. For once I can say YES, inadvertently maybe, but YES!!! (You would think it was a masterpiece, but such as it is I am happy not to have to do it again)

BEHIND my cooker is one of those moveable butchers block (well in fairness that is a VERY big description for something so very small) but anyway behind the moveable storage yoke are things like my massive soup pot and other kitchen impliments because I have nowhere in the corner that is my kitchen to store them.

And this unit is packed nearly flat against the back of the cooker and wedged at the corner of my bay window.

So there isn't much room in there.

I had occasion to pull the unit out tonight because I dropped something behind the cooker and while retrieving it I had to pull everything out, move the table, chairs, and plant on stand. Which was probably a good thing because corners like that in our home tend to be magnetic and pull stuff from everywhere into their abyss.

Or so it would have appeared until tonight. I realise someone has been helping this magnetism with their own brand of recycling. I discovered empty yoghurt cartons, discarded by the Young Wan who somehow has an aversion to bins.

Seriously what is the deal with that? I just do not understand.

Why go to the trouble of throwing them down the back of the cooker knowing they WILL be found never mind the fact that the bin is actually closer and less hassle to throw away properly.

So I retrieved my dropped item, poured a glass of wine, sat down and informed the Young Wan the corner would be cleared of all that rubbish NOW.

I went on to add that 'if we ever get rice or mats I know who is responsible'.

Shish wish I could speak proper.

mats? what did you mean to say?

I know that corner, we have one too behind the bedroom door, only gets tackled when you can't open the door wide enough to get through, like now - shite!
