I tend to only comment when I have something specific to comment about, but I shouldn't!

So: This was a good episode!

Also, it made me want to buy an electric kettle.

Of which, our Zojurishi lid arrived (along with another for my mother in law’s machine) and tea and coffee are back to effortlessly normal again.
