RDP Monday: Kettle

Kettle? Is that what my mum used to boil water when I was still in her care. Every cup of tea had its water boiled in a kettle. Our water was not so perfect and was full of lime (we called it fur) , meaning that the kettle eventually had a thick white layer which collected over time. The only solution was to dissolve it with vineagar.

And so what happened to the kettle? It has disappeared over the years and been replaced by something more modern (plastic or glass) which has a light show when it is boiling. I suppose they are called water boilers (am not sure of the modern english expression) and we now have our second edition. The water boils quite quickly and modern life has given us an expensive filter system which eliminates the lime. However sometimes I miss the kettle, it was so homely and it just belonged to mum and her household.
