Hi Lardy, I had a plastic one that I think I got from Boots, but if its any good, I've got a spare glass one if you want it?

If its any good to you, PM me your address and I'll wrap it carefully and pop it in the post!

Or!

This is the one like I had.

Ooh, looks like they do Lardman. I dropped mine in the sink and the lead shot went everywhere... :(

Thanks for the offer Grannie, but it would probably cost you more to send than for me to buy a new one.  :blink:

It's my own fault, I should have left well alone (having a two left hands sort of day). It was a "Youngs" one and to be honest felt so fragile it was only a matter of time.

I've managed to get the info by calculating the sugar/volume and looking it up for now - at least I know they're out there, I'll certainly keep my eye open for either a plastic or a much thicker glass one.

I broke mine a few weeks back.
Anew one is only around £3 at our local HB shop.

... local HB shop.

Nearest one I can find is Harris over in Dudley, which is the best part of a 40mile round trip  :( I'm collecting an order big enough to warrant an online purchase - it seems easier that way.
