2010:365:14 "A Handy Wee Doofer"

Sometimes problems pop up in the most unexpected places.  What happens when the steamer has been working away for a while?  The chrome knob becomes too hot to handle.  It isn't exactly a major issue - more on the level of a small irritation as you then have to go hunting for a tea towel or an oven glove.The solution is right at hand!  "A handy wee doofer".  Yes, that's the official name of this small padded "thing".  It hooks conveniently onto a cupboard door just hanging around waiting for such an event as this!  It was a Christmas present a while ago and has become one of the most useful objects in the kitchen. 
Lifting hot lids is no longer a problem!  So I'm off to make some champ for tonight's tea (dinner/supper).  Wouldn't it be great if there were a simple solution to all of life's little problems?

Almighty God,
you know our anxieties and fears.
Help me to cast all my cares on you,
and to know that you love me.
Give me peace of mind, and a sure trust in you,
through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen. 
Book of Common Prayer.
