Carnage week

My hubby told me that he should rent me out for plate smashing at celebratory events as I am going thro a lot of China and glass this week. So much we now have a safety box outside for all of it.

The highs and lows of RA and hands😂🤪🤣

It certainly does. 🙄

I can so relate to this too as I bet so many of us do. Seriously considering plastic plates as managed to break and whole set over the last year. 😂 x

I've bought a couple of plates made with bamboo, so light and unbreakable! x

I have been using plastic Plates for at least 5years only at home though. Try to stay away from real plates and my family always put my plate in front of me now.😀

Thats why i don't cook these days because of butter fingers darling. xxxxx

I can so empathise with you Deeb 1764! My hands make me so clumsy. Love your husband's sense of humour! Keep chuckling...laughter is SO good for us. Stay safe...would say stay well, but stay as well as you can be.

Maybe we could form a knobbly finger cooperative😂 I regularly 'throw' assorted crockery and kitchen contents on the floor inadvertently, even the dog hides when I open kitchen cupboards in case the flying missiles bounce in her direction! I've broken more plates etc in the last year or so than in almost 40 years of marriage. Most frustrating are flying blue berries from the fridge because I can't kneel down to rescue them.

Oh I hate the blueberry tumble!

Yes I can sympathise. Emptying the dishwasher has taken on a whole new dimension. When I drop food it is a disaster as my dog rushes for it and is on a special diet for inflammatory bowel disease, so if I can't stop her, know she will be ill and trip to vet necessary. Mind you, she is a bit wary when I try to move quickly in case I fall on her 😆

My husband decided it was easier for him to do the cooking rather than me scrabbling on the floor to retrieve food, China, cutlery etc, he's a better cook than me anyway.I do the gardening, doesn't matter so much if you drop things outside.

It works for us!

🤣🤣🤣🤣 my worst one was a full chicken casserole ...all over the shiny tiled floor ... took months, a few tears and some bad words before it got clean again!

Oh yes, and somehow no matter what you do, the kitchen smells of whatever you dropped for ages. 🤣🤣

Totally agree there...and yes I have cried over spilt milk as it went everywhere when I lost my grip on the carton travelling across the kitchen ending up in places I never knew it could. :-)

I dropped a full time of hot chocolate powder as I made bedtime drinks, it took forever to clean up and I kept finding it in crevices that I missed for days. Lesson learned the tin sits out by the kettle now rather than trying to get it down from the cupboard safely! Our little dog loves when I drop the bag of cherry tomatoes and she manages to run off with one😅.

Drinking chocolate worse because if you use a damp cloth it’s a nightmare so vacuum of dust pan and brush

Picnic table ware is nice these days ! xxx I forget to a add I let my lady do the dusting of my glass ware as I collect it and some is valuable. So best I just look at it nowadays. I learnt my lesson dropping a Hospodka vase a couple of years ago.

I know the crockery shuffle & glassware drop. So much so I’m excused from unloading the dishwasher, I've not bothered to argue. We just have IKEA plates & bowls & glasses nowadays, easy & inexpensive to replace. Pyrex bowls tend to be pretty bulletproof so rarely break those.

Yep this is me .. car keys i drop five or six times until I get BBC a grip
