I very occasionally talk about my favourite possessions, the things that really make things easier for me. For the other items so far you can see here, here and here.
Today it's the turn of my measuring cups and spoons.
The measuring spoons are particularly brilliant as they came from a Christmas cracker! I do have a dessertspoon sized one but it's elsewhere as I use it to measure out laundry crystals.
I use one or more of these every day, it saves messing about with scales as I know what I need for whichever grain or pulse we're eating that day and all that kind of stuff. They were probably the best tool I had when I lost 42lbs in weight a decade ago, they help me to reach things from deep shelves, and of course I use them as a cat scaring device when they get too close to the birds.
Now I think of it, the chopping block is important in our world too, as well as using it for the intended purpose it's bit enough to cover the hole in the worktop!
