Sometimes it just takes one piece of bad luck to undo something that has lasted for decades and that happened today. A china plate in which we serve cakes on had been in the family for over 60 years. Today as I placed the cake on it and lifted it to bring to the table, it slipped and fell on the ceramic sideboard and broke into several pieces. A 60 years old plate is now no use to anyone within that split second. It was far too fractured to repair and went in the bin along with the cake, which was also ruined.
