So instead I am going to out them on my blog and hope to hell they don't get the email update for today.
I have talked before about my issue with acquiring ugly things before, sadly that dinner set is still with us, waiting patiently in a storage container for the time when it can taunt me with it's useless obligation once again. Since then however, I have discovered even uglier and even less useful items skulking around in my cupboards.
Now I know the question on everyone's lips since I posted it on Instagram before the move is "What the hell is that wooden phallus on a plaque about?!?!" In case you missed it, I would be referring to this...

Disturbing isn't it?
That's certainly what I thought when I unwrapped this part first of a 2 part Christmas present from Mr Bond's brother a few years ago. But it turns out that it wasn't nearly as bad as you would expect and given Mr Bond's love of all things fishing, it was definitely appropriate. You can imagine my relief when I opened the second part of the present and realised it was purely to hold this up.
|You can still see it can't you?|
Something that has become abundantly clear to me since we packed up our house is that people see us as "animal" people. Yes, Mr Bond grew up on a farm with a whole menagerie of animals around him (including ferrets, but that's another story all together), but do I really come across as the kind of person who keeps a variety of bird life decor in her home? No? I wouldn't have thought so either, but the evidence would suggest otherwise.
|Do I make you horny, baby?|
Or maybe peck me, to be more precise.
