I’ve never considered myself the domestic type, but since being off on maternity leave I find myself drawn to the simple domestic tasks that I do everyday. For example; normally I strongly dislike doing the dishes, this is why we have a dishwasher. But it is broken right now and Leighton is waiting on a part before he can fix it, so in the meantime we are doing the dishes the old fashioned way.
This morning as I’m going about my morning routine I find myself no longer dreading the pile of supper dishes that need washing. Instead; I’m enjoying the sound of running water, the morning light coming through the window, the sound of music playing and the laughs coming from my children.
This morning I’m thankful for a broken dishwasher. 🙂
