This is what happens when you rush, knock something & hope like all heck it's going to bounce.
Whaaah!!! It doesn't!
This was my favourite cookie jar which I use to keep all the birthday candles, decorations, etc in. Actually, it was my second favourite cookie jar up until the beginning of last year. I had a barrel cookie jar which belonged to my grandmother. It was packed incorrectly in the move (ahem ... hubby) and it ended up smashed and completely irreparable. Anyway, I was rushing about getting dinner ready before I had to go out tonight & I put some matches back into the jar & was a little hasty in putting the lid back on. At the time I was standing on a mini step ladder, as the jar is kept on the high shelf in the pantry. Rather than try and catch the falling lid, for some reason I decided to watch the lid fall, hoping that it was going to land on the large tupperware container below and possibly bounce ... it didn't.
Whilst I can still use the jar, the lid is pretty rusak ... That's Bahasa for broken ... a good word to use around children when you really want to say it's #*#*#*!!! Although the lid doesn't look that bad in the photo, there are a few too many little pieces which have broken off and I'm afraid even my Dad's super aralditing skills may not be able to fix this one. I so loved it :-(
