I'm joining in with Rhonda's Down to Earth 'On My Mind', today.
Our Dishwasher is leaking - BIG time. I know exactly what's happened as this is the second time this year - mice. The wee monsters have eaten through the second outlet pipe. Who knows what the three cats are doing, but it's not keeping the mice out ( or maybe they are and it would be worse if they weren't here) Anyway, this morning I did the dishes by hand and I actually enjoyed it. I suppose that's because there were very few. I think my enjoyment of the task would decrease rapidly if we'd had a crowd round for dinner, but for now, I don't mind.
I didn't used to have a dishwasher. When I was single ( many moons ago) I just did all the washing up by hand, this was probably because I had the smallest kitchen in the world so there was no room for a dishwasher, and also I couldn't afford one.
Nip over to Down to Earth to see what other people have on their minds.
