Darling, I've found your balls
The water is very hard in Calne so we have a water softener installed. The system contains siliphos balls to attract the calcium and they have to be changed from time to time. While he was buying plumbing stuff for Kat’s flat on Friday, Paul bought a new box of siliphos balls and put them in the car.
Yesterday afternoon Paul decided to install the new balls but he couldn’t find them anywhere. He searched the car and turned the garage upside down looking for them. We looked everywhere indoors and eventually came to the conclusion that they must have been thrown out with the rubbish at the tip.
Paul was not happy that he had lost his balls. Then I had a light bulb moment. I had removed an empty recycling bin from Kat’s flat to put in my kitchen. This morning when I threw the empty cornflakes packet in I remembered seeing that Paul had already christened the bin and thrown something in there. Hmm, I wonder...
“Darling, I’ve found your balls!”
