20 May

Fraser got home – and yes, was not happy about the bins. We can always take one of the big bags out if we need to – there’s nothing perishable in there. Failing that, we can see if any of our neighbours have room (there is a flat rate for rubbish collection, not a usage charge).

He went into the study and did the predictable “wow” (as did Biggie) and then – WHERE’S MY CLOCK. Sigh. The one thing of his that I actually had the guts to throw out, because it was broken.

I’ll buy him a new one. Here are a few I could choose from. Here, too.

    I do hope you didn’t count it as “broken” because it went backwards…

    Ooooo… thanks for the links! We’ve got one backwards clock, but I’ve never cared for it (the design is excessively cheap and bland), so it’s nice to see some of the options that are out there. I have been thinking of doing is making my own and using the clockworks from our current one with it…. but this makes me think I might be able to find the works for sale separately somewhere on the web.

    What I really want is a nice backward running pendulum clock. I suspect I’d have to make my own from scratch in order to get one, though.
