Brought myself an electric frying pan today as the only time we use the stove top these days is with the frying pan which needed replacing. So I have sat the frying pan on a choppig block that is sitting on top of my stove top.

Glad you thought about it for a while Kathryn  :D :D :D 

Just quietly I have been doing my homework for the last couple of days - just needed the tip over the edge thing to convince DH that it did need to be replaced  ;D

When we were looking for a house to buy 6 years ago we said we have to buy one with a dishwasher or at least somewhere to put one. We found our house which had a dishwasher ( very old but worked) so we were sold straight away. We replaced the old dishwasher 3 years ago. Mine only runs once a day and I hand wash the rest. Love my dishwasher.

My shopping is about to be curtailed as I funnel funds directly to my dentist.
I'm quite depressed. :'( :'(

I've been saving for my next dentist's visit for approx. six months and I still have more to go - replacement bridge required c. $6,000!  If this new one lasts as long as the original it won't be so bad (divide $6,000 by 20 years = approx. $5.00 per week!)  It doesn't hurt so much when you look at it that way.  However, I really would prefer to spend the money elsewhere - new hot water tank element ... solar panels ... refurbish the bathroom ............

He wants to celebrate the new shop.

I'll go buy the wine today.

Although the bills are going to be high, I am far more depressed about the actual procedures.  I'm a dreadful baby when it comes to dental work.  I had slowly improved over the years, but I'm up for some major stuff now (currently have an infection in the jaw bone under a crown & need implants) and I feel sick just thinking about it.
I just thank the heavens for drugs.  They're going to have to use all they've got on me. :o :o
