We have regular discussion about the dishwasher. Ideally, it should be emptied before lunch, thus taking the previous days lunch, evening meal, and possibly breakfast too... but it never works out. We both hate running it unless it's full, but often it's best to simply add a pot which I use for utensils, to give it a freshen up, rather than be annoyed that it's only 92% full when switched on. It's been warmer today, 6 degrees all day, better than the minus temps we endured all yesterday. Went out for a walk this morning, then ate simple lunch of cheese & tomatoes, as we're having a repeat Christmas dinner tonight with all the leftovers!!
Ps I nearly bought flowers for the house when doing the last shopping, but I thought my OH might treat me. Result: no flowers at all. I'd rather have bought them than had none.
We walked on one of our favourite paths, the old train line route. Beside the path, many fields were flooded in spite of this normally being dry fields.
On the way back to the car, this is the large puddle which Bonnie chose to paddle in, in spite of being shouted at!
She is somewhere on the right of this pic...having just emerged, dripping...
Even in winter, the countryside has its own beauty.
Here I come, only muddy on the underside, Dad!!
