Had a bit of an axcident.
I was just leaning to one side to get a better view of what all the squabbling was about outside between a bunch of speugs (sparrows, to you non Scottish speakers out there) when her-who-must-be-obeyed's favourite vase ran into my elbow and then hit the floor:
Gawd! Panic! What to do? Where can I hide?
No, no, calm doon. It'll be ok wi' a spot of glue:
Do you think she'll notice?
It will be fine as long as she doesn't want to put floers in it with water.
Any questions (which is a certainty) I'll just say it's like the Japanese call it - Wabi Sabi - not quite perfect but full of character.
Yes, that'll do it.
