If someone gives you a 750g jar of home made cherry jam. At the last minute you may question yourself and think - shall i pack it after all. Its a gift, so you squeeze it in, and hope it travels. 

You get home and open the bag, half expecting smashed glass and a sticky residue. It's made it safe, SWMBO studies the jar carefully, and you put it in the cupboard for another day.

I have a loaf of bread that I picked up from the supermarket yesterday, Just to toast. The type sealed like everything into a polythene wrap. Its been chemically risen, so its light as a feather. Perhaps they put helium into the dough.

Into the toaster, click up it comes, lightly toasted as SWMBO has adjusted the settings whilst I have been away. Toast it again - Pop - Its done, no smoke, no fire alarm activation, to wake the house.

Unsalted butter melts into the sponge, that passes for toasted bread ...

Its that cherry jam moment ...

Into the cupboard searching for where SWMBO has hidden it, found it. Grip it and you twist the lid.

You twist it again, you say the magic word all men know 'Mother in Law' as you exert all your power, to seperate tin lid, from glass jar ...

And you cant get the bloody lid off ...
