Am I missing something here? Can't more than six cupcakes be made in durable non stick baking tray in an oven for goodness sake? Why clutter up the kitchen with yet another ugly single purpose appliance?
Surely life is too short to cut carrots, cheese and melons into hearts or star shaped pieces. I bet it doesn't fool those children who don't like eating veg either.
Capuccino frother anyone? We owned one of these once as it was bought as a gift. Proof indeed that present amnesties for other grown ups should be entered into with abandon. It didn't add anything to our lives, sat at the back of the drawer after one use and then went off to the charity shop. Maybe it still adds to the clutter in another kitchen in a different house.
Ah ha - the tabard beloved of houseproud old ladies. There are other ways of stopping clothes from getting mucky where you don't have to resort to wearing the ugliest piece of cover up in the world!
The flowery stickers do nothing to disguise the fact that we're dealing with a wheelie bin here. It's not turned into a garden statement piece. As for buying numbers - wouldn't a can of old paint in the shed do the same job?
Am I the only person in the world who doesn't get the point of prolific air freshener use? Okay there's a can of Neutradol by each loo in the Lovelygrey household for dealing with noxious boy smells. But does a floral smell need to waft from plug sockets or little burners in each rooms. It seems so because I couldn't take my snap in the Airwick aisle as the through traffic was constant and therefore had to resort to photography in the motor section. Now I thought a room (or a car) could be made sweet smelling by opening windows and a bit of cleaning. Silly me!
Okay I like things to be spick and span but doesn't sterilising all and sundry go a bit too far? There's a danger that the entire population could be diagnosed with OCD if this trend for total hygiene took off.
More hygiene gone mad in the form of deodorant for girlie's jubblies. If there's an nasty niff from down below that cannot be managed with good old soap and water perhaps it's time to see the GP, not mask the problem with a can of spray!
I sincerely hope that the designer of these clip on butterflies that supposedly enhance the look of plants is dissatisified with their work. And there's yet more products in the range. How about some plastic flowers if you're not happy with the ones that Mother Nature makes herself?
I viewed the travel department as a good candidate for selling gadgets that were contenders for this post and I spotted what I initially thought was a prime example. This fan blows air and sprays cool water at the same time. But the more I thought about it, the more I thought how superb that this idea was! It's just a good job that I wasn't shopping in the middle of our recent Indian summer because I might have snapped up all the stock! And then I came across other things that became more compelling even though they seemed ridiculous at first glance. The moral of the story? Wandering aimlessly in retail land can dangerously meddle with your rationality. Luckily I escaped this time with my brain and pennies intact!
