    Hi!

    Turned the accidentally the wrong hob on where her oven glove was lying and it's burned now, you can still use it but it's burned.
    Can anyone please tell me what I should tell her without her thinking I am a fool?

    Thank you .

    The thing is it's not the only thing I've burned so far. I've burned pizzas, toasts, food. She'll think I've never seen a kitchen before .

    Bottle of wine/chocolates plus replacement oven gloves. Maybe start concentrating in the kitchen as sooner or later you will burn yourself and that is not pleasant.

    You have to get the '' face in there at exactly the right time too.

    Or alternatively, 'sorry, I got distracted by thinking of you.. and suddenly the room got really warm and your oven mitts caught on fire in the process. I'll buy you some new ones and take you out for a drink to apologise for the inconvenience :sexface:' gotta get the face right there too.

    Definitely just admit to it, apologise and offer to buy new ones. I understand it might be a bit embarrassing but we all make mistakes like this sometimes. If you can, the best way would be to laugh at yourself and then she can laugh with you. Oven gloves are not a big deal as long as you own up to it and buy a replacement.
