There's been a lot of hoo-ha in the blog world recently about the Fairy Hobmother. This benevolent being has been flitting about granting wishes and no-one really knows why.
Behind it all is a company called Appliances Online which as the name suggests sells all manner of electrical goods for your home. Obviously, they're wanting to spread their name and gain a good reputation, but they've been sending lucky people items that they don't even stock themselves.
What gives, Appliances Online? WHY ARE YOU SO NICE?
Anyway, I made a wish a while back on the very excellent blog A Rather Unusual Chinaman for some accessories to pimp my Kitchenaid trophy Bertie Branning (named after Max Branning of Eastenders fame) and lo and behold, the Fairy Hobmother sent me:
- a rather secksy glass bowl which I'd been lusting after since I'd seen Lorraine Pascale use one on Baking Made Easy.
- a meat grinder which came in a box with the words "Fleisch Wolf" on it. FLEISCH WOLF. Yes, the German word for a meat grinder is FLESH WOLF. AMAZING.
Anyway, I've been asked to spread the love, so ANYONE who leaves a comment on this post and makes a wish specifying what they would like could be visited by the Fairy Hobmother too!

Roll with it, guys - I'm pretty sure you won't get a horse's head in your bed.
Unless you ask for one.
