I love this Kettle!

Dsc_1009

I used to put the kettle on to have a cup of tea and forget.  Ten minutes later like a scene from groundhog day I’d pop the kettle back on.  I won’t tell you how many times I can do this during the course of a busy day  .. or you might start worrying about my sanity .. because I used to repeat this behavior to such an extent that you’d think I had a obsessive compulsive kettle boiling disorder.
Notice I said had. I found the solution and it is just so utterly gorgeous I need to share it with you.  It’s the Le Creuset traditional kettle.  Not only is it seriously beautiful it whistles when it’s ready.  I love that it makes me walk over to turn it off and that I make my pot of tea there and then!

Three are so many lovely colors to choose from.  Mine is the Cerise red which I love … it’s so cheery on my hob and I am delighted to be able to offer this fabulous kettle as a prize in the cream color almond.
So to enter please tell me who you’d most to pop this kettle on for and who you’d most like to have a cup of tea with in the comment box below.

  2. You have no idea how much I want one of these gorgeous kettles but Hubby has said that we don't need one as we have an electric kettle, he just doesn't get it, so to win one would be just so perfect and he couldn't moan that I had spent any money on it.

  101. As another entry suggested, tea with loved ones no longer here was my first thought but in the land of the living I would love to make a cuppa for the inimitable Stephen Fry. I'd like to know if it is true that he never washes his teapot and how many stages he deems necessary to make proper tea. I feel sure he would be a veritable encyclopedia of principles and neurosis

If you are reading my blog I must warn you that I am not impartial. I want to influence you. I want to make you stop for just a moment and consider the effect of a lifetime of seemingly insignificant decisions and how making small delicious choices can change the world.

I believe that we can change the world one bite at a time.

It's a delicious revolution.
