LET THE BICKERING BEGIN!



Yesterday Husband dearest broke up from work for the next three weeks (yeah) and so like naughty children we will doubtlessly be bickering over the use of the laptop. Well, I've never known anybody spend as much time just browsing the various sites dedicated to whisky. Do you know what some of these bottles cost? Hmm, (sighs loudly) I do.


Which brings me to the cleaning of my engagement ring.


Looking slightly less sparkly than usual (well that's what you get when you wear it in the shower, whilst washing up etc) I was advised by our jeweller sister-in-law that whisky would clean it up a treat so ........


One night placing said ring in a glass with a measure of whisky in it I left it to soak, only to awake the next morning to find Hd ranting something about whisky.


My first thought? 


OMG! he's drank the whisky and swallowed my ring.


Phew, thankfully not the case, Hd sat me down and pointed out that I'd soaked my ring in a very expensive whisky (a leaving present from work) and questioned, as if I'd know the difference, why I couldn't have soaked it in something a little cheaper.


Anyway, I digress .....


Just to let you know that though I have saved a lot of posts to draft and therefore will be able to concentrate on visiting you instead of typing posts my visits may not be as frequent as usually.


Fondest wishes, 




PS Soak your jewellery in whisky at your own risk. I take no responsibility for the consequences of doing so.

I used to live next door to a lady whose Dad owned a jewelry store. She said to scrub your ring with toothpaste and a toothbrush so I do. Sparkle sparkle.

Egads! You tell him to let you use the computer, your audience needs a new post! ^_^ ..and if that doesn't work, just snag all the time you can. LOL on the whiskey "error"...so he'd have preferred you use a cheap version to clean your beloved jewelry?

Too funny. When I read that I was so scared he had swallowed too!

Here is your answer:

With something as important as the wedding ring, it had to be the expensive stuff. Wouldn't he be insulted otherwise? ;)

Good luck on the comp time.

Oh goodness! Sorry you soaked it in the expensive whiskey (for your husband's sake...) but I hope your ring is shiny! :)

Whew! Your ring was okay!! I've had some close calls myself, although they never involved whiskey (regular or extra dear). :)

Oh, that's hilarious!

Enjoy his time off together. Why not ban computers altogether for few days? That's the kind of rules I make up around the house. Poor children politely oblige. Only it is hard for me to follow my own rules.

Look forward to hear from you soon.

We have a little cleaner that cleans my ring. It works really well.

Jenners said...

Did the whiskey do the job? I don't have any but I'd be willing to get it if it does! Enjoy your time off.

It was great hearing from you, Petty! Have a freaking awesome time with Husband. For a few moments there I was worried he'd swallowed your ring, too. And well, you know, an engagement ring is special, so naturally it required special soaking whisky. :)

Too funny!

Now I'm thinking of cleaning my ring, not in whiskey though.

Lol Tracy, glad he didn't swallow the ring.
Funny enough, hubby and I are on vacation as well. Now that we're back home from being in the woods with limited Internet access, we are trying our best to share the family computer. Yours googles whiskey sites, mine googles sports and plays solitaire. Thank goodness for my iTouch which is what I'm currently using to blog hop. Its either that or I have to wake up early and jump on the computer while everyone is still asleep.
