I discovered yesterday that my kitchen scales fly well. Unfortunately they aren’t so hot on landing!
The challenge of getting used to a new kitchen is that not everything has a proper place to live. Jane had left the scales on top of the basket of flour; I thought they were tucked down the side and so lifted the basket out less carefully than I should have done, hence the aerodynamic display.
The scales did seem to be completely broken although my “I might as well have a look at what’s inside since they are beyond repair” fiddlings seem as if they might have repaired things. I need to give them a proper test but, whether they turn out to be restored or if we need a new set of scales, will definitely try to find a more secure home for them in future.
