09:00: I have no dishwasher. With two kids this is Not. Good.
Especially as, apparently, draining boards aren’t a “thing” here.
Well there’s none here, and there was none in any of the properties we looked at last week.
So, this is what life without a dishwasher looks like:
Thank the gods for a breakfast bar!
I’ve also discovered what happens when you don’t notice that a teaspoon has made its way down the drain/garbage disposal.
Hint: it’s loud and the spoon ends up very scarred.
However it does explain the state of some other items of cutlery, so I clearly wasn’t the first!
The man came about 15:00 and fixed it though! I was extremely grateful and tipped him – which apparently I shouldn’t have done – but being confused, British and grateful apparently absolves a lot of sins!
The Tiny Tyrant was randomly screaming solidly from 00:00 to 03:00 because she just did not want to be in her cot. But I am putting my foot down – we’ve been here over a week so no, unless ill, no more co-sleeping. Except we are now all exhausted.
I’m praying for no repeat performance tonight. Having said that, Wednesday night appears to be “brass band on the street between two of the restaurants underneath us” night. Two weeks in a row is pattern.
TT has also learned how to open doors with pull handles.
Bah. I need gin. Or whiskey. Porque no los dos?
