CutleryThe cutlery in my house is slowly falling to pieces.
Every time we have a small dinner party of say... 6 we are stretched to the limit in terms of cutlery. An assortment of miss matched bowls and plates are taken out and we will have to dig up every single fork and spoon we have in the house to accommodate everyone.
Also, the handles on the spoons and forks are not as firmly fastened together as they used to be back in their hey day - meaning every so often while eating the spoon will fall into the plate while you grasp the handle foolishly.
The situation has gotten so dire that guests have actually volunteered to bring their own cutlery from now on when they come over to eat. Shame on us hosts!
Me and my housemate are stubbornly holding on because we figured we only have to eat with questionable spoons for another 3-4 months. After that, who knows? Sterling silver set from Tiffany perhaps.
