However there was the problem of picking it up without letting the rest of the liquid escape! It's amazing how just a spoonful can look like a whole tumbler full when spilt.
Everyone came to see and offered suggestions, some helpful and some not! None of which seemed viable. It was getting late and the routine last minute rush of teeth cleaning, face washing and brushing of hair should have already been underway. I was tempted to leave the damn thing there where it stood and let it take its chances!!! It would have been better if it had just dropped and spilt everywhere, at least I could have had it all mopped up by now, but instead we were all stood there marvelling at it!
Husband appeared, just then, with a plastic wallet. We slid it underneath. It sort of worked, almost.
Just as I was clearing up the smallish spillage, Tall Girl came in again for another look!
