    I think Ive lost the plot.

    I needed to make a trip to town today and noticed that Mr TM had a 5 off wys 25 at M&S.

    I just went in with gay abandon and spent an entire 25 ....I didnt even have a list...I just picked up random things without thinking and put them in my trolley.

    It was weird

    I even bought one of those in store baked loaves for 1.90 which was delicious.

    I think I need help

    Think you have a mark on your glass cupboard door TM. Needs a wipe down, possibly looks like it might be a splash from the food mixer.

    I bought some floral trousers in T I think which were billed as sleepwear and daywear (they had a nice phrase for it) and which I often wear when I am working from home. I have gone supermarket shopping in them but when I did a middle-of-the-night airport run in them my friend complemented me on my pjs and I've been less keen on being seen in them!

    A puzzle for you

    A piece of string is attached to the corner of a cube. The cube is suspended by the string and lowered into a bucket of water so that exactly half of the cube is submerged. What shape is made by the intersection of the cube with the surface of the water?
    Originally posted by TrulyMadly


    The shape formed is a regular hexagon. Three faces of the cube meet at each corner so as you lower the cube, the intersection starts off as a point and grows into a triangle. The size of the triangle continues to grow as you lower the cube until it reaches it largest possible size. This happens when the water passes through all corners connected to the submerged corner by an edge of the cube. Any further lowering truncates the corners of the triangle and produces a six sided figure with the surface of the water intersecting all six sides of the cube. As you continue to lower the cube, the longer sides of the six sided figure decrease in length and shorter sides increase in length until they all become exactly the same length. This happens when the water intersects the midpoints of all edges not connected to the corner connected to the string or its diametrically opposed corner. The rotational and reflective symmetry of the cube tells us that all the sides and angles are equal.

    I went shopping for 2 small light bulbs, expecting them to be 50p each. Spent 4, seems there are new rules and they all low energy and long lasting or some nonsense.
