The 1950's...

So Man let Woman out of the kitchen and see where it got us:


Just a very short post today because, as you can see, I am still recovering from Marcia'a Birthday party yesterday...


  1. I say old chap, that looks a touch disconvenient. Dishwasher broken? I had a dishwasher break once, leg or something, but it still worked once it had been put in a cast.

    If you're not careful you'll end up with hands as soft as a badger's bottom.

  2. Combination of communist inspired labour laws and religious fervor. No maidlings on Sunday...

    There is a dishwasher amongst all the imported kitchen kit so this is only a temporary inconvenience.

  3. And when you've finished the dishes, you can make a start on the spuds!

  4. No! No! Not the SPUDS!!! Anything but the spuds!

  5. How i miss my dishwasher. Since she finished maternity leave its just not been the same. Washing dishes outside, i bet you wouldn't ever come back to the UK at the moment.

  6. You wouldn't chuckle! I have done my fair share of scrubbing Army mess tins in sub zero temperatures...

    As it was her birthday, I gave my standby dishwasher the day off.

  7. Are you about to wash the laptop after you've finished the plates?

  8. Before you refer to a woman as a dishwasher, keep in mind that that probably means she is armed with blunt objects and knives.

    I hope the party went well!

    I was following on line instructions on how to wash dishes.

    Good point, I never considered that before. The party went very well, thanks, although as the place was teeming with Marcia's nieces, I have sinned in my thoughts again and will need to go to confession.

  10. So, retired soldier you might be, but KP always awaits!


Please feel free to comment, good or bad. I will allow anything that isn't truly offensive to any other commentator. Me? You can slag me without mercy but try and be witty while you are about it.
