How do you wash up?

We're getting used to our empty nest.  Mostly it's fine.  No more issues over how many dinners to cook and less laundry to do.  We've still seen quite a bit of the kids as well, even providing beds at times. One problem we do have is scheduling the dishwasher.  It always needed running once a day.  Now there are only two of us that isn't always the case so we are getting out of sync.  On occasion the dishwasher is not full enough to run but we need the pans or utensils in it.

I think we might have to invest in some more pans etc.  The alternative (having to wash up) doesn't bear thinking about!


  1. We lost our dishwasher (it died) years ago. Since there are just the 2 of us, we have become good at washing up ourselves. So good that when we rent in Florida in the winter, and have a dishwasher, we rarely use it. Then, again, we do entirely too much takeaway. Chinese mostly.

  2. Nothing wrong with takeaway :)

  3. Gosh, haven't seen a blog post from you in ages. Mind you I can't talk! I had good intentions at the start of the year and then it all went wrong. Must get back to it.

    I find that I still have enough to run it on a daily basis even though there are only 2 of us. I hate washing up and don't want to go back there. I have had a dish washer for over 30 years. Not the same one of course! LOL.
