There's one thing that drives me mad.... Well, actually no, there are lots of things that do that but at the moment I'm sighing over one particular thing -
Ten or twenty years ago, I used to sigh every time I had to buy batteries. I seemed to be buying them all the time. In the house, there were, like, three portable radios, a cassette player or two, a Walkman, a portable CD player, clocks, cameras..... I wished there was a money tree in the backyard to pay for all the batteries.
Nowadays, not so many batteries, but I seem to be re-charging things all the time. There's my Kindle, my second Kindle, two mobile phones, my MP3 player, three cameras, my mini-vac, several kitchen appliances..... I have cords all over the place. I trip over cords. I get tangled up in cords. I'm so confused over which cord belongs to which implement that I have to label the cords. There is a whole banana box of cords. The box itself is clutter. Soon, I think I will have to get a bigger box. Then more boxes. Eventually maybe a bigger house. Oh dear.
Oh, thanks Helen for your Comment- it's great to know that you've seen Bernadette Peters.. And on Broadway, too. When I saw Peters' this month in Melbourne I was blown away by her vampy rendition of "There is Nothing Like a Dame" (from 'South Pacific) - see below link
