I have a lovely electric jam pan which I bought when I could no longer stand for long enough to stir the jams and chutneys which I love to make. I am an enthusiast so in 2014 I made enough preserves to feed a small army and put out an appeal among my friends and family for jam jars.
2015 saw me eating my way through my stores and I didn't need to make any more but the jam jars kept coming. And coming. And coming. And coming.
I shall be getting the jam pan out again this year and was confident that I would have enough jars. Enough? I sorted fifty to give away to a friend who makes jam to sell for charity and I still have plenty for my own use.
So that's fifty jars, thirty doggie items, seventeen books and three miscellaneous items - my first hundred items GONE!
And there's plenty left where that came from.
