Today was not a good day.
Firstly, I felt grim as I seem either to have some kind of chest infection, or someone is inside my body scrubbing at the lining of my lungs with a wire brush.
And secondly, the top to my tumble polisher split. I have a feeling it was entirely my own fault. Last week I couldn't be bothered to heat up the top with warm water before putting it on. It all seemed ok at the time, but when I came to use it today there was a big split in it. I tried to mend it neatly with super glue and gaffer tape - see below.
I have emailed the company I got it from and hope they can get me a replacement lid.
So the warning is don't take short cuts - it isn't worth it.
