Within this bowl...

On top of fridge sits a large green salad bowl. We push it under the cupboard over the fridge to stop dust settling into it and it is probably used once a week anyway and so will not get too dusty. Within the bowl is a smaller white one which also gets used once or so a week. Within the smaller bowl is another bowl that is never used for food and is a repository for bits. You know, for the things you find on the floor or wherever and you don't know what they are for. Is this important to something?

I wonder how old the matches are and will they still work if we need to light a candle?

Why is the keyboard rattling so much as I type? After a day or so of annoyance, I turned it over and damn, a rubber like foot is missing. My thoughts of buying a new keyboard evaporated. I can fix this, without personal injury or strain.

Within the crates in the spare third bedroom wardrobe I found just what I needed.

It is the white bit far right now stuck to the back of the keyboard.

But when putting the salad bowl back a few days later, some kind of memory must have kicked in and I checked the bowl for bits. Sure enough, the old pad foot must have been found on the carpet and put into the bowl as a mysterious object found on the floor.  

I am working on an even more riveting post for tomorrow. Cheers.

    1. It is Sandra. I could have glued the original foot pad back on.

  2. At our house, the foot would have hung around for awhile, and then I would have said, "Why in the world do you hang on to these random bits and bobs?" I would have pitched the thing in the garbage, and only then, after the trash had been taken outside to the bin, would I have discovered what the thing was for.

  3. I used to keep a screw top jar for odd bits that I knew belonged to something if only I could remember what. Now I don't even know where the jar is, let alone what the contents are for. If I ever find it I'll just toss it.

  4. Things are stacked and tidy. Some peoples houses wouldn't be like that. Top of fridges, well, some peoples are just filthy, can just get a hand on top of ours to clean it!

  6. About a year ago I found a tiny screw by my laptop. I looked everywhere to see if one was missing, but couldn't find a screw-less hole anywhere. It worried me for weeks.

    1. Cro, I am sure you have a container for such things found.

    1. Oh MC. A bomb went off in the Number 96 flat block in December and we had to wait until February to find out who was killed. You will only have to wait until Sunday, if I get it together. Sorting photos now.

  8. My laptop has also lost one of its little rubbery feet and won't balance properly. In other riveting news from Yorkshire, England I am thinking of throwing my old toothbrush away and using a new one. Also, I shall be taking some stuff out to the recycling bins today.

    1. YP, is your tooth brush electric? Like rechargeable? I always change my toothbrush head after holidays. For the first time this year I have changed my toothbrush head after not having a holiday. R tells me there is a job for me in the morning, code for taking the recyclables down to the bin room. Hey Boomer, aren't we trying to do our bit?

  9. You never know what you need, until after you toss it away.

    1. Debby, not anymore. We are always trying to declutter and get rid of what is not useful.
