I live in Australia, my ancestry is in Cornwall. a Celt. a hedgewitch of sorts. I am an Earth Healer. I wear upcycled clothes, patchouli oil and Redback boots. A gypsy. An eccentric. a mystic. I am a searcher, a seeker, a pilgrim on Earth. I serve my guests, tea from an old silver teapot. I love Vervain, yarrow, chamomile & mint. I love to dream, to walk and to wonder

Plan ahead and dream of all the beautiful things that life has to offer

housekeeping

woke up bright and early this morning..had my first cup of tea and unpacked my dishwasher. So many things not washed properly, so it was time to clean it out.... so I took the filters out. How on earth, do pieces of plastic, half toothpicks & other various bits and pieces make their way into the dishwasher? I ran a sink full of hot water and scrubbed each piece with a brush..rinsed them all and put it all back* hopefully in the right place.... I wiped all the rubbers and seals down..polished the front ... placed a cup full of bicarb soda in the bottom and now it is running through a cycle

the rest of the morning will be spent re-arranging and cleaning my lounge room in readiness for my new lounge ..then I am lighting a fire, taking a nap and reading some of *romancing the ordinary*

I often wonder that same thing about the dishwasher myself...

I am surprised you even have a dishwasher Ms Robyn - there is nothing vintage about them - lol! I have never had one, and don't miss it. OK, there is only two of us, but I have always washed the dishes by hand since I was a kid in the 50's and there were five of us in the family, so it's not as though I have not washed up after a crowd before. But I do have a microwave. I could live without that I guess, but I do love having one!

LMAO, Ms Robyn - I wondered if I would get a 'bite'! I like to tease now and then. We may be getting a dishwasher after all these years, when our kitchen is renovated (our house is 32 years old, and I love it the way it is, but the kitchen is starting to fall to pieces...). So I guess I will be joining the rest of you soon - look ma, no dishpan hands!!
