Taking it easy today, not in such a rush, tomorrow...back to the grind.
Wow! Now that sounds like a well thought out plan. Just take you time in doing everything.

I can so relate to #11. My sister used to call it 'giving the dishes First Aid.' I'd soak them in scalding hot water. Too hot to put my hands in. Let it cool down. Now the water is to cold to wash them. Change the water to hot water. Too hot to put my hands in. Repeat several times until you need that pan to make a meal.

According to the current advice over here, given the cost of our water and electricity/gas, the d/w once a day is supposed to be more economical than washing up in the sink after every meal.

When I moved house there wasn't room for my full-size dishwasher and I live alone so I bought a new narrow one. Supposed to take 10 place settings. Oh, yeah? Don't know how they work that one out. 10 pace settings and there's no room for anything else - in fact, put in 5 place settings and while there's plenty of space left there's no actual room for anything else to fit so it's do two washes per session or roll up your sleeves and fill the sink for the stuff that won't fit in the d/w. And it's a "Bosch". Top of the range. Ha!

It doesn't clean properly and it doesn't dry despite diligent cleaning of filters, etc. My old cheap and cheerful "Beko" full-size d/w which cost half the price of the Bosch was infinitely better at everything. Fortunately I put the Beko in storage and I'm seriously considering removing a cupboard to make room for it and sending the Bosch to the charity shop.

As this thread asks what I'm doing the answer is I'm doing the (insert your own rude word) washing up.

Rant over and I feel better

I haven't been around for a while - where are you moving to? Have you retired from nursing?

All the best for the move and the new home.

Unfortunately they didn't provide dishwashers. Instead we have garbage disposals. I would rather have the dishwasher. Half the time I forget to use the disposal. I toss the food scraps in with the trash. But it would be hard to forget to wash the dishes.
