Quote of the day 10th July 2021

 "I've just been told not to use this electric fire in a swimming pool."

(Family member reading the instructions for the item concerned. The exact words in the booklet were

"Never use the product anywhere where water is in use, i.e. bathrooms, kitchens, shower rooms, and swimming pools etc")
