Five Minute Friday on a rainy Wednesday morning – I think that’s a record even for me but it still works the same way. Prompt word, five minutes, just write. (I’m also linking up with a few other lovely blogs – links are at the end of the post)
This weeks prompt word:
I’ll find myself just staring at him, standing in the middle of my kitchen and gazing long and lovingly at his sleek lines and handsome features. I still can’t quite believe he’s here, all clean and new and shiny, so I keep going back to have another look. My knight in shining armour – I have two now.
The first my good and hardworking husband who travels back and forward to Western Australia every month, who God bless him decided to trade in his hard earned frequent flyer points to buy me – and it really deserves a drum roll – – – – a dishwasher !!! – – – – and I’m in heaven.
You may have all been singing the praises of your faithful dishwasher for years but I have never in all my adult life lived in a home with a dishwasher so you might just find me giving this guy a little smooch. Ive been struggling for a long time now to keep up with what seemed like a daily mountain of dishes and a kitchen that more often than I care to admit, looked like a disaster zone.
On a good day she looked like this.
And this one
Today she looks like this.
So you might find me drinking coffee with my feet up or sitting playing UNO with the kids, you might find me in the garden, or knee deep in a project or just staring out my window – the only thing about standing at my kitchen sink that I like, but – – – you won’t find me with a mighty great load of dishes to wash.
And with this shiny new addition this side of the kitchen doesn’t look quite so bad – not so neglected and unloved. See she’s been patiently waiting for a new bench top, shiny white subway tile and a new sink for ever so long and – – – well this makes the waiting easier.
So here’s to dishwashers that leave my plates and dishes and cups and pans cleaner than I ever thought possible and to cleaner less neglected kitchens – – – – and three cheers for my lovely husband who always does everything he can to make my life better.
Got a minute? – my kitchen sink gets another mention here.
