It was my birthday on the 24th of November and when Justin asked me what I wanted, my request was met by, “Are you sure?” He thought it was a bit functional or mundane for a birthday treat.
It’s something I’ve wanted for quite a long time, and thought that it was no longer available. But, when I noticed it for sale once again on the Selfridges website, I didn’t want to miss out a second time
We’ve had a similar one that we’ve been using for years, a purple 3-slot combi that we bought at Liberty when we lived in Brighton – which was over a decade ago! We used to have lilac walls in the kitchen in that house and it looked great. It doesn’t work so well in our current home though – in fact it’s jarred on the eyes for years – a purple toaster in an orange & cream kitchen. I don’t know how we lived with it for so long!
I’m sure this Dualit will last as long as the last which was used every day and never let us down – virtually indestructible!
And romance isn’t completely dead… after our morning toast, we went for a lovely birthday lunch at the Old Bore in Rishworth.
