If I ever offer you a glass of wine when at my house, don't be offended by the type of glass you might get!
You see, we're not adverse to having decent glasses (or crockery for that matter) but the chances are everyone in the same room will be drinking from a different glass. Some would call it 'Vintage' I'd call it jinxed!
I just break stuff all the time! I break things on the tap as I swing them over from the side to wash up, I can pick up a plate and I've suddenly gone Greek! And I can break a glass simply by runing a sponge around the inside of it (I've always said I have man hands!)
We once bought a set of beautiful (pricey) lead crystal tumblers (should have known better) they were (yes I use past tense) nice, funky, solid glasses. There's one left.
I spend a lot of my time sweeping up jagged shards of stuff (how does it manage to travel so far!) and then vacumuming just to make sure I won't be sued for grating my family's feet!
So we currently have three wine glasses, an array of other glasses and various pieces of two crockery sets... When it comes to setting the table for four I can usually wing it with two people having the same stuff and the other two having the same stuff, but different, if you see what I mean! And of course I can pretend it was meant to be vintage! (I think) Anymore than four visitors and the only cuisine that suits my jumble-sale of a collection is a buffet.
So there you have it, my name is Sarah and I can't stop smashing things. So if I pop round for a glass of vino, you may want to serve it in the cheapest glass you own, or failing that, a plastic beaker.
