A riddle - revealed (scroll down)
As part of my OU course our tutor set us the composition of a riddle.
This is mine - can you guess what it is?
I hold items with my holes
I clank metallic, plastic, hard.
I contain the plain mundane.
Water washes me
from my handles to my soles.
I am tasteless but can be chic
in Nigella blue.
Are you bowled over by me
Everyone who guessed a colander - you can all give yourselves a clap. Go on then - I can't hear you. This is the French Fancy colander that graces my worktop and that is almost too pretty to use. It's not the same blue as the Nigella blue but poetic licence and all that.
