'Everyone of us has a junk drawer in the kitchen. I have a hot water bottle and 3 amp fuse. What do you have in yours?'The 'hot water bottle' made me laugh, but then, well, where do you keep a hot water bottle?
So I thought it might be time to take a peek in mine. Let the listing begin....
Erm...er...I do have a small confession to make.....
I don't actually have a junk drawer.
Now, don't you think that makes me sound like the most amazingly tidy, organised, uncluttered owner of a kitchen ever???
Oh no, no, if only it were that simple. I don't have a 'Junk' drawer in my kitchen...
...because I have a full height, floor to ceiling, double doored 'junk' CUPBOARD in my kitchen.
Admittedly, it does contain some little wooden drawers (maybe that counts), sitting on one shelf holding;
Pens, pencils, staples. fuses, batteries, birthday candles. All the tiny bits & bobs that would roll away forever if put on shelves.
The remaining cupboard space is filled with;
Spare birthday cards
Bags of hamster bedding & hamster ball (Yes, we do have a hamster, before you ask)
3 out of date passports
3 old instruction manuals for things I don't think I own anymore
Bottles of brush cleaner (how many???)
9 (yes, 9) old paint brushes, in a container, still covered in rock hard paint (I obviously haven't figured out I need to use the above item)
5 (!) all but empty school geometry sets
3 nearly empty tubes of wrapping paper
A box full of odd IKEA fittings
1 tube of multi-vitamins
1 small tube of extra volume hair conditioner! Huh?..no one in this house needs bigger hair
A dust buster
A blow torch
1 hot water bottle..Ha-ha, that's where it is!
There is much, much more....But I feel the need to go and have a little lie down now.
So, the question is 'What's in your junk drawer?'
