I saw a funny mug recently that read
"Dear Wife,
If you have asked me to do something, I will do it!
I don't need reminding every 6 months"

After 29 years of failing to get all the tiles on the bathroom walls we changed the suite and put in a shower.  A nice man tiled the walls at the same time.

Anyone want to buy a reasonalble amount of cheap tiles?

Reminds me of my first job where I seem to recall we sold a round china dish known as a "Tuit".  It was so named because plainly printed on the bottom of the dish was "This is a round tuit" - now you have one you can finish all the jobs I've been nagging about... I wonder how many of them have survived...

My Mum still has one of those, quite possibly bought from your shop Scarlet Dragon. I remember when she was given it - oh how we laughed  :thinking: .  She's still got a ceramic frog somewhere holding a placard that says "please don't smoke, it makes me croak". Another 70s design classic, I'm sure you'll agree  :innocent: .

We also have 'a round tuit' S.D. Reminds me of the look of amazement I got when I replaced the broken bathroom wall heater the very next morning- the only job (aside from urgent breakdowns) I've managed to do promptly.


Still have a long list of jobs here that haven't been done- the list was written August last year!
