We have a pump dispenser for dishwashing liquid. For some reason when R last topped it up, the liquid from the storage bottle was really watery. Someone had topped up the storage bottle with water. How odd and why?
I was looking forward to our meal of lasagne, but it was so salty. We don't add salt to food as it is cooking and while R may add some salt to his meal, I don't. Even as a kid, I was never salt person and so now, I am very sensitive to salt. I do like my ground black pepper though. R's Sister added salt to the lasagne.
They really weren't dishwasher machine people. They had no idea how to load a dishwasher. Mind, R is not so good at it either. I am a perfect dishwasher loader.
One of our hotplate burner's lighter ceramic surround thingie is broken. Oddly, the hotplate still lights without the ceramic bit. Who broke the ceramic surround?
I am very glad I told R's sister to not concern herself with our clothes washing but to just do their own. We bought a small clothes drying rack for their bedroom before they arrived. It proved very useful for them and apart from a small increase in water usage when they were here, the electric and hot water bill are much as they would have been had they not been here. Mind, our electric bill cracked the $500 for the three months. I put it down to really hot weather in February and March and the air con worked hard. Now we are heating, it is hard to imagine what a short time ago we were cooling.
The High Rise is a no smoking premise, so R's sister and bro in law spent a lot of time on the balcony, but there is still a burn in the carpet from their last visit. No matter, soon to be replaced.
Nevertheless, R's sister is lovely and it was wonderful to have them here. I just don't get the watering down of the dishwashing detergent. Why?
