19th-20th & 26th-27th January 2013.
I often think the nicest surprises happen when doing something homely. Like when a glass falls and should break but miraculously bounces, or the moment when a candle goes out with the little plume of smoke. Or indeed when a light bulb bursts, or when the washing machine dies. Actually there is nothing nice about when a washing machine dies, but the fact that it did die, makes you wonder: was it for a time in some sense alive?
