I have been looking through my old, oops sorry, vintage stuff. I have quite a lot of it in my house, not that I am a collector or anything, it's stuff that I have owned for a long time, and might as well keep hold of it.
I was using this Braun hairdryer when I was in my twenties, and it's still going strong, although I don't use it very much now. I let my hair dry naturally these days, thus saving on the electricity.
My matching cutlery has got to be 37 years old, and guess what, it was all free. I was a driving instructor at the time and used a lot of petrol. The garages were giving away vouchers with every gallon and I cashed them in for knives forks and spoons. Even then I was always on the look out for a bargain ha ha.
I think they should stop making and importing cutlery, surely there is enough of it. You only need to buy it once and it can get passed onto the next generation. It's not as if it wears out or anything.
I shall be off to Hull in the morning on the bus, to do a bit on BBC Radio Humberside, at 10.30am if you are anywhere near to pick it up. Not scrimping this time, we are talking about Truck Stops. It will be a bit of fun. You will probably be able to listen later on the BBC website, but maybe not outside the UK.
