This is…my favourite op shop find

My "this is" effort for this week, apart from being a bit late, is a recent purchase.  I’d been lusting for a Teasmade for ages, and when i saw this one (box and all) on the shelf, I was excited.  I don’t think it’s ever been used, and I confess to not even giving it a try yet.  It was one of those purchases where you know you’re paying too much for it, but at the same time, you also know you wouldn’t be able to sleep for thinking about it (ah the joys of consumerism).


Apologies for the crappo photo, I had to use the flash this morning, as I had an inspired moment whilst waiting for Gatsby boombah to finish his brekky (so that the dogs didn’t scoff it while my back was turned).  I had no idea what my fave op-shop find actually was, and then Teeboy was sitting there looking at me.  Problem solved.

    I really really wanted one of those years ago when I lived in England. I settled for an electric kettle. Oh, do use it and tell how it feels!
