Well thanks fontanazul, I'd say you've created - through the medium of illustration - a reasonably accurate rendition of the feeling one could experience in these circumstances. Further to this trauma I now have a new addition to my Exbor shelf (it's a good, solid shelf - not in any way wobbly, so that's a relief). It's quite an unusual one I think. A whopping 342mm tall, possibly designed by Pavel Hava. Difficult to photograph as the colours are quite dark - it looks a lot better in real life than it does here. Exbor mark is a bit poor but it's there all the same.
