- How to banish the soot fairy?
I was tired last night after being designated driver, so I went to bed early.
Awaken this morning to a number of frantic and apologetic texts describing how she ‘didn’t realise she had last-night left that new candle-mirror burning in the toilet-room’. Enter the toilet-room and see a mound of molten wax all over the toilet cistern. The (painted) entire walls and ceiling are now an interesting if patchy shade of candle-black. Not helped by it having being a very tall ‘just for display’ gift candle with a cardboard label wrapped mid-way.
There is evidence of a soot-fairy having experimented with some ‘wipe-out’ style graffiti art.
Anyone know what the next move is? Cheap and cheerful options will be considered first and foremost 😀Posted 2 years ago
and equally i hope all parties now realise why a
“candle mirror”natural blonde is an accident waiting to happen.
The party was immediately and roundly disabused of any notion otherwise. Mirror was only ever an inactive wall ornament this last 15 yrs.
Thanks for suggestions, have tried magic sponge. It puts white stuff on the wall. Could be expensive as one is worn already and two in a pack for a fiver..Posted 2 years ago
Why are you the one tasked with cleaning it up?
I offered. The very real horror and shame exhibited by said party was enough to motivate my benevolent gland. Pragmatism sealed the deal owing to soot-fairy being physically incapabledisabled.
In her defence by the time I awoke she’d already called around excellent friends for advice and they had volunteered a ‘paint party’ .
Being a man still blessed with stubborn if misguided pride…’Nah, no probs, I’ll do it thanks!’ Ongoing groin injury dictates extra planning maybe also required.
