I'm really jealous of the thread catcher, but it's all good!  Especially the crazed burglars explaination.

I'm really jealous of the thread catcher, but it's all good!  Especially the crazed burglars explaination.

The thread catcher means that I may be able to vacuum only once a year, instead of twice! Smiley

And, a friend of mine told me a story about how her friend's apartment got broken into and when the cops showed up they said it was ransacked. And she had to reply, "Um, no, it always looks like this..." So, I laughed out loud when I saw the sign in my package!

"Ransacked by crazed burglars?" was your 5 words to describe your home on your swap questionaire!! (though you cheated and it was only 4, but you made up for that 1 work with creativity and humor!!)
and I recall you commenting that it was like a dance to navigate around  your storage places (piles)

Ha! I forgot that I wrote that! But, it's 100% true- I'd take a pic to prove it, but pics just don't seem to capture the full effect! And, the pile dance is probably the only form of exercise I get. Plus, it keeps me on my toes- literally as I dance from spot to spot, and figuratively since I need to pay attention since some piles may have shifted when I wasn't looking!

The sign is truly perfect and I'm taking it with me on Sunday to show my mom (who has everything in it's place, dusted and shiny)...

OOOH The thread catcher bag is SUCH a neat idea  Smiley It would save me having to take the vacuum cleaner to pieces every time I want to use it as I have to untangle the brush before it will pick anything up  Smiley and the sign is inspired  Grin My husband always says we'd never get robbed as a quick peek through the window and they'd think someone beat them to it  Wink

Here at last are the photos of the unspeakably awesome stuff I received from GothChics.


Skulls'n'Roses apron, oven mitt and hand towel.


Double sided cocktail recipe/Indian recipe book and a pamphlet of excuses for not cleaning.


Cute sign, which now has pride of place in my hallway.


Easy grip utensils and American measuring cups. At last I can make American recipes! And everything matches my kitchen! woot!

Love the skull apron and oven mitt! And the sign is fabulous!

It's funny, I never thought about American measuring cups vs non-American measuring cups! I have a couple of recipe books (not that I cook Cheesy ) that I've picked up on my travels and they have grams and milliliters. As a science geek, I think I just converted without thinking about it! But metric measuring cups would have made things easier...

I have never seen measuring cups in England that weren't in American measurements (and insanely expensive). We just use weighing scales and measuring jugs. I've tried converting cups to UK measurements but it never works out right (and my boi is a maths graduate). Its like converting between ounces and grams, theoretically it works but for some reason I cant get it right. Fortunately most UK cook books show recipes in ounces and grams as well as in centigrade, gas mark and fahrenheit (though I will never ever understand fahrenheit)
