There are lots of things that our house doesn't own. Funny things that would normally be considered essential items for a house. We don't own a TV for instance. We don't have a microwave and for now, at least, we don't have a kettle. This little sauce jug is my kettle. I think I inherited it when I first moved out of home. A long abandoned pot that had been relegated to the back corners of the 'pots and pans' cupboard, retrieved and placed in my tiny box of "kitchen items" for a new life away from home. It's moved with me everywhere and I'm quite partial to it. I love the slightly acid green enamel, the small chips from years of use and it's functionality. It's the perfect size for boiling one cup of tea. I'd like to say that every morning I boil my water in this jug, but that wouldn't be the exact truth. You see, every morning Matthias boils water in this jug for my tea as I take a shower (yep, I'm spoilt). My tea is waiting for me when I've finished getting dressed with this cute little jug sitting beside it.
