Well that's it. My serkyem is now officially wrecked. Faulty from the beginning, the point where the cup screws into the base has now broken and every time I fill it the liquids pour out into the bowl.
Unfortunately I am currently penniless so I am asking: if anybody has a spare serkyem hanging around, new or used, shiny or battered, any size and shape, even if it is just the cup/chalice, and cares to donate it, I am willing/capable of paying the postage costs.
I promise to put it to good (daily) use and include the donor in the prayers.
