The ice cubes are melting too quickly in my spritzer watering down the strength of the wine.
My daughter showed me the plastic covered cubes she bought to put in the freezer yesterday for her new flat. She doesn't like alcohol, but I'm so glad that she must have gained the potential of such inventions from me.

Unnecessarily stressful artificial deadlines imposed by someone who does not do the ducking job or indeed understand what doing the job entails ...

The paper on my Magdalenas doesn't separate cleanly, so I have to scrape the paper with my teeth like some sort of confectionary crazed Castoridae.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

Our car had an electrical fault while we were on a biking holiday in Germany. Thanks to insurance support and a hire car, we are safely back here, but our car is still in Schwäbisch Hall and the bikes are still in Crailsheim. Shanks' Pony for us for a while.

I am trying to spend money but the bonprix site keeps booting me out & I can't connect through the main page. I went on chat & the woman closed it on me twice!

That's what you get when you refuse to answer online questions about your underwear choices. The internet never forgets.

Someone had nudged the Roomba virtual wall slightly, altering the beam sufficiently that only two-thirds of the room got vacuumed.
