I was feeling rather under the weather yesterday so as soon as Mr Earplugs got home from work (and it wasn't 'soon' either!) I took myself off for a nice hot bath and an early night. I very rarely have a bath as I can't justify all that hot water (dishwasher and washing machine - yes; long, hot baths - no). In fact the last bath I had was a 'sitz bath' to ease my stitches following Nipper's birth!
Well, I enjoyed my bath and early night. However, the promised cup of tea didn't materialise and when I got up this morning this is what greeted me (along with being pestered by the cat as no-one had fed him):
It seems that I am the only one capable of tidying up and loading a dishwasher!
A few days ago I came across a saying by Confucius on someone's blog side-bar. It was something like this: "There is beauty in everything but not all can see it". I guess you can apply this to housework and mess - not the beauty part but the fact that it is invisible when someone other than you needs to do it!
*Thank you all so much for your kind words and hugs following my last post. They were very much appreciated.
