Sad tidings

Follow-up to A new arrival from My name is Layla, I'm not a showgirl

I know that it is fairly unlikely that anyone cares about my Ken Hom 14" Sensai wok with 10mm base, metal utensil proof non-stick coating, life time guarantee, cool handle and of course lid (mustn't forget the lid) but I thought an update was needed.

True to their word Amazon delivered it to our door. Sadly, on finding that The Lid Which Must Not Be Forgotten did not fit, it was soon discovered that the wok itself was heavily dented.

The re-packed box is now sitting rather forlornly on the floor waiting for collection next week. No stir-fries for me until after reading week then.

Life is cruel.

  1. I wouldn't care, but the 10mm base seems to have sold me on it. That and you've brainwashed me into thinking a wok is exciting (I'm even talking to people at the bus stop about it for goodness sake, look what you've done to me!)... Still, no-one could have expected the tragedy that was this morning. And honestly, those were tears of sympathy. Just ignore the fact that I was laughing. That's how I sound when I'm sad for you. Honestly. (Please still make me a stir-fry!)

  2. I care!

    I do!

    No, really, I do! Even about the cool handle.

    (But with one massive caveat: will you make a Lizzie-friendly Peppers-Are-The-Root-Of-All-Evil stirfry at some point? Otherwise, my care will turn to other things, and I'll have to start getting excited about purchases such as my mother's new curtain material, and that would be a shame.)

  3. UPDATE: New wok has been delivered and old one taken away. All is well.
