Sewn Words # 3: Lock & Locks are the Russian Dolls of the Tupperware World

Sewn as a response to all of those blessed Tupperware-esque plastic food storage containers that seem to multiply and clog up my kitchen cupboards.  It turns into a bit of a Krypton Factor challenge to try to stack them, catalogue them, nest them and store them in such a way that they are not just a perishing nuisance every time you open the cupboard door.  Talking of Tupperware can anyone remember back to the 1970s when the highlight in a woman's social calendar was going to a Tupperware Party. My mum seemed to get invited to one at least two or three times a month  (much to my dad's annoyance as it wasn't cheap - "Well you have to buy something" she would tell him) and would always come back with a 'must have' item such as the Party Susan or the Cruet set on a stand which after a while would get relegated to the back of the cupboard never to be seen or heard of again.  She would also teach us how important it was to 'burp' the air out by pressing the (dare I say nipple) in the centre. .  Such an exciting time for housewives back then.

And today we have good old Lakeland which I hate to admit can be just as exciting!
