The smallest piece

“The whole universe depends on everything fitting together just right. If one piece busts, even the smallest piece… the whole universe will get busted.” – Beasts of the Southern Wild

Our oven got busted. The smallest piece, the pin for the oven timer snapped off rendering the whole oven useless.

Our landlord has been and gone, taking the timer with him so we have a hole where it used to be. Hopefully it is an easy and quick fix.

Our stove works fine so I’m not relying on raw or microwave meals. Just no roasting or baking for a while. At least this isn’t a baking blog!

Stovetop pavlova and cheesecake anyone?

I am Genie, a graphic designer/photographer obsessed with food and bunnies. I live in Whanganui, New Zealand with my husband, The Koala and our two rabbits, Kobe and Bento. I write about my hedonistic ways and I love the mantra "Eat well, travel often". I prefer not to write about myself in third person.


  1. Isn’t that always the case? A little plastic dohicky snapped in half and now one of my windows won’t stay open. I’m using a board to prop it up because I am too lazy to call the landlord. Why is it always the smallest thing?

    • Damn those tiny dohickies! A tiny plasticky dohicky thing broke in our shower around May last year. Notified the landlord immediately who came and took a look but never did anything about it. The shower still works, it’s just MacGuyvered into place with a rubber wrist band. Whoever has the the world’s supply of dohicky’s must be holding them to ransom.

  2. I would really like to see you try. Our balcony light is busted. Our smoke alarm is busted. Aaaaand the cornice in the bathroom is starting to droop. Oh bother.
