Mom made the noughts & crosses games with a little help from me, and my auntie knits the dolls, there are a couple of bits of jewellery I bought from charity shops but all the rest I made myself.That's a lovely toy box. Did you make all the other things in the pictures as well?
I've been turning a couple of small cigar boxes into more decorative ones as I like boxes.
Some people truly do not engage their brains before opening their gobs.Minus side: Being asked by a potential customer, looking at our products "So there's nothing in these that will poison a dog?"
There are worse things to have in your bin...The wheelie bin was emptied/washed today so I before I put the liner in I decided to sprinkle salt in it. Keep away the insects and nasty smells, y'know.
Couldn't find the salt but did come across a winter path-clearing preparation. It was probably mainly salt so I lobbed some of that in.

It didn't look like salt so I checked the back of the tub -

So now when my bin gets wet it will smell of wee.
I actually like customers like that. I usually get instead: (me) "Hello!" .. (customer) "Can I get ......" .... ignorant. It's not like I want to become friends mate, how hard is it so say hello or hi back? .. do you all work for Elon Musk and he's waiting with his engine running in the car park and time is money?.After years in retail, I've heard many variations on a theme.
A recent one, not offensive or unreasonable, but irritating is ...
Customer enters shop.
Me, greeting customer: "Hello!"
Customer: "Hello. How are you? Are you okay?"
I have to restrain myself from saying: "Well, I think I might have covid but I thought 'what the Hell' and dragged my carcass in anyhow. Just stand a yard or so from the counter, stop bloody picking up things to sniff or squeeze, and we both should get through all this without fuss, eh?"
Then I realise I'm not allowed to be a Basil Fawlty if I want to pay the bills.
