RIP To the Dishwasher!


RIP to The Dishwasher – it has died. Having thrown all its water on the floor last night it won’t have anything to do with water any more. It has metaphorically turned up its toes! This, in the great scheme of things, is not catastrophic but nonetheless irritating. Especially given the Whitebytts current production line of homemade jelly this weekend! Purchase of a new machine will be The Number One Priority on Monday!

But the sun shone again today and we threw caution to the wind (what little there was of it today) and swam in the pool! Well having poured copious amounts of chemicals in it all summer, for hardly any benefit, we had to take advantage of the warm weather! Refreshing but very pleasant was the verdict!
As a thank you to it we have bought it yet another present – a new winter cover! Swimming pool maintenance is not cheap!

The jelly making reached its conclusion this evening. We now have lots of jars to sell at our Tea for Tribes do.

At least we avoided “paddling in the kitchen” as an evening activity today, so we could watch Strictly Come Dancing Results Show in relative peace!

  1. Hope you get your new dishwasher soon, when ours moved out (the kids) we didn’t know what to do, had to wash them by hand for weeks till we bought one 🙂

  2. The Jelly sounds fantastic, especially the Crab Apple and Rose Hip. I’m sure they’ll be snapped up.

    It sounds like you deserved a relaxing swim after such an industrious weekend. We hope your Tea for Tribes event goes swimmingly too!

    Looking forward to hearing all about it.

    Thanks, from all the Survival Team.
