Leaky Leek and Potato Soup

I tried my hand once again at cooking leek and potato soup, (actually following a recipe this time), as it is one of my three favourite soups along with pumpkin and butternut squash and coconut and coriander. The soup itself turned out marvellously, I used a very easy and simple recipe from the BBC website, http://www.bbc.co.uk/food/recipes/leekandpotatosoup_1920, but I did have a bit of a disaster in the kitchen...during the blending stage the blender decided to fall apart, screws and shards of plastic everywhere. Luckily the soup was salvageable although I had to sieve all sorts of things out which put a damper on an otherwise pleasant self taught skill.
