    Ah, clear dysfunctional tendencies, I'm afraid. You seem to go for one-use only corkscrews, Yank the cork out, leave it in and buy another;)

    That's my wife's fault. She's too drunk after her first bottle so just uses another. That was yesterdays efforts. The other bottles from yesterday were screw tops.

    My Norwegian friend in town has an incredible kitchen. I just tried to find the not very good photos I took, but no joy yet. It is completely filled with shelves (open) full of stuff. Work surfaces are covered with stuff too and the pulley with clothes drying is over the sink etc. I don't know how she copes with it all. Seems utter chaos to me. Lovely lady. Always welcoming, sits outside in summer and always has someone there talking to her. Her living room space is lovely although near her sofa is a huge table (padded) covered with cloths and everything piled onto it! Crazy, but so welcoming.
    Here she is:

    We have another friend who is a hoarder. Her kitchen is untidy yet is just a mess. Not welcoming at all. I really don't know how she lives with it.

    That is a nice real life photo. Love the dog staring at you too.

    In fact, our fridge is a bit messy. Friends take the piss out of our fridge magnets. I like them.

    And before anyone asks, no we are not Trump fans!

    It's a comfortable life if you accept the limitations. Few shops, few diversions, one venue for Arts and amusements/films/performances etc etc. If I didn't have this good internet connection, I would either have to take frequent trips to the mainland or go about in old pyjamas! Ha! Good neighbours and friends though and that means a lot.

    You're making it sound even better :)
    What is it like trying to get to the mainland?

    A Glenfiddich emergency is when you realise that you are out of Glenfarclas and Aberlour. ;)

    It's confusing - all the newspapers have the current day's date on them.

    Cheeky bugger!! It's only on Sunday that we hae to wait till Monday now. Most of us don't bother, we just pick up the current day's papers. :p

    Well, you can fly to Inverness no problem apart from the cost and it's flying. Or you can go by ferry which is a three hour trip followed by a coach to Inverness. I used to do day trips, but I'm too old now! Otherwise you can fly to Glasgow, stay a couple of days and make the most of it!

    My Sister on Hoy and Niece on shores of Scapa Flow do the Inverness trip quite frequently. Not sure what the balls are like these days though.;)

    Um begs the question - whose balls? My mum was always off to those, but I have to admit that was the 1920s and 30s.

    That's funny because that lemon squeezer is a memory of my mum. I remember that growing up and how I was fascinated by the way it caught the pips :)
