Valentine's Day

Valentine's day is a day that many loathe. I did for many single years and still don't particularly love the fact that it is such a commercial holiday. One should give love all throughout the year. Men should treat girls with flowers without reason for an occasion.

Having said this we still enjoyed this day, in a back to basics way. Yesterday we had a little indoor picnic amidst Ikea boxes that still need to be unpacked. It was a lovely and different. An evening that includes chocolate fondue will always be in my good books.

Valentine's also marked the day that we finally solved the beeping mystery. After completely killing off the alarm and changing a lot of sensor batteries we discovered that the culprit of the noise was the dishwasher! At the end of the cycle the dishwasher beeps for a long time to indicate it's done. Unluckily we were setting it on just before going to bed each night!

  1. Poor Colette!! In our house, it is the washing machine that has a very annoying alarm at the end of the cycle which lats for 30mins. Luckily the dishwasher does not. Needless to say that the washing machine is never turned on at night! Otherwise it would have been broken by now. I cannot understand why an alarm is needed. It is not as if the washing machine or dishwasher will explode if the clothes or plates are left there once the cycle is complete. Whoever, thought this would be helpful was very odd.
    I bet you will do the dishes in the morning from from now on!
