Hurrah! The first item of the new month (only a week or so late).

This one was a wrench, I have to tell you. But it’s exactly the sort of thing that I’m doing this project for, so here it is.

One of my oldest friends came to our wedding (almost five years ago!) and gave us this rather sweet cork that they’d picked up in Switzerland.

When you pull the lever on the back, they kiss.

That’s the problem with stuff really, to everyone else this is just a novelty wine cork which has lost its cork and has a slightly comical smooching action. To me, it’s a reminder that I went out of my way to renew a friendship which had gone a bit quiet and which has subsequently became all that it had ever been and more.
