I rang the head office of Argos and was informed that I could take the kettle back and get a refund and so that is what I did, not problems.
Thanks for your input.
On a completely different topic, I must share with you my experience with Marmite.
I have to admit that I often suffer from the glums. I didn't used to but as I've got older and possibly with Tom not being well I have seemed to be suffering more than usual.
Recently I've taken to having a couple of slices of toast with (dare I say it, Butter ) and a generous amount of Marmite each morning.
Suddenly I've realised that I have been a lot more chirpier lately and it dawned on me that Marmite has a lot of B vits in it.
On looking this up on dear old Google I find that I'm not kidding myself but that it is actually a fact that a teaspoon of this wonder stuff can actually make a difference to our brains and help the glums and other brain connected things.
So I shall continue with this for my breakfast and hope that the good work its doing will continue.
On the needlework front, I have completed the willow tree and just have to mount it onto a new page for the journal
And the cat is coming along nicely.
Got the ears done and couched the gold for the flowers, just got to decide what to fill the flowers in with.
The little holes in the nose will have diamontes in there but I will leave that until the end.
I really have no idea what I'm doing next it just comes to me after a bit of cogitating. lol
I'm sure the experts would say that you should draft out what colours etc you are going to use but that's not me.
Looks like its going to be a very cold wet weekend here.
Have a nice one where ever you are.
Glad you are feeling better with the Marmite and enjoying it too. Beautiful embroidery brings the scene to life and the cat is coming on well too. With cold weather ideal time to enjoy your craft xcxReplyDelete
I ought to eat a pot a day then! I do like Marmite - well actually, I prefer Vegemite nowadays, in fact I had it on toast this morning. Glad it's made you feel better, I wouldn't have thought of the Vit B benefits. Your embroidery is beautiful, as always.ReplyDelete
Good news about the kettle. I bought a pot of Marmite about two weeks ago, hadn't noticed any difference in my brain functions, but I probably don't eat enough of it. I will up my intake.ReplyDelete
Your embroidery is beautiful as always. The cat is going to be fabulous.
the cat is going to be gorgeous, I can tell and I love that tree... I have never heard of Marmite and did a search and it is sold here by Amazon or Walmart.. might try it.. could not hurt for sure... I am sendig this to friends who are in the glums. and I do love the word glums.ReplyDelete
Mmmmmm marmite is our favourite thing to have on toast... with a good scrape of butter too.I always put a little bit in gravy and stew too. Simple pleasuresReplyDelete
Gorgeous stitching, I’m a lover of marmite on toast too!ReplyDelete
I haven't eaten marmite in ages, but I might just give it another try now. Lovely needlework. XReplyDelete
I love Marmite. Also have it on a Ryvita with cheese. Yum. It is also vegetarian.ReplyDelete
It is raining all weekend here, too. Your willow is beyond gorgeous! I could walk right into it and live there. I have never seen anything like it. I think Marmite is not used in the country? I would like to try it, though!ReplyDelete
I have never seen that yeast stuff I'll check it out. I love the pictures you paint with thread they are beautiful ❤ReplyDelete
Well I never knew that about Marmite! I like Marmite and as a result of this blogpost I will make sure that I have more Marmite on toast this winter. Afer all, I don't want a miscarriage!ReplyDelete
Never knew that about Marmite, but still don't like it! Love your embroidery of the willow. Its gorgeous.ReplyDelete
My blanket was acrylic thats why it was a small hole which wasn't seen until I washed it and hanging on line. The hole got bigger with the weight and handling my fault I should have fixed it before it got as large as it did.
I love marmite which as you day has oodles of vit b which is good for the nervous system. I used to take tablets in the winter to help with the blues.ReplyDelete
People say you either like Marmite, or hate it - I am ambivalent. However, if it has such a positive effect then the sad little jar which has sat in my pantry for so long will be brought out and put to good use. Your embroidery is beautiful.ReplyDelete
Hooray for marmite. I’m glad you returned the kettle no problem.ReplyDelete
Hooray for marmite. I’m glad you were able to return the kettle.ReplyDelete
Yay for the refund! Glad you went for that.ReplyDelete
I've often wondered about trying Marmite because I do like yeasty things; now I will for sure.
And your embroideries are lovely. I'm so impressed that you do this not by planning the colours but by "following your nose" as the saying goes!
Glad you were able to get a refund.ReplyDelete
I've never heard of Marmite. I wonder if they sell it here.
That cat is going to be awesome. Can't wait to see it finished
About 2 days ago the cold weather seemed to get right inside me. I took a large teaspoon of Marmite, diluted it with boiled water in a glass, and drank it. Almost at once that feeling of having frozen lungs disappeared. On toast in the mornings is pretty good too, with lots of butter.ReplyDelete
They say Marmite smells terrible so I'm hesitant to try it. But now with all these favorable reports I think I'll be brave and give it a try. Now all I have to do is find a store that carries it here in the US.ReplyDelete
Both pieces are gorgeous. I don't think I've seen that Marmite stuff.ReplyDelete
The Marmite has all kinds of great benefits! I wish we had it here. How does it taste? Your willow with the flowers is my favorite! And I even like the two birds flying over. And the cat is coming along beautifully.ReplyDelete
