I planned to start this blog after the birth of my second child so I would have a record of her development. Lovely idea, just a tad optimistic. Especially as she turned one last week...
Well life has been busy. To say the least. Especially without a dishwasher...
My name is Susannah Hardy and I'm an actress, freelance writer and full time mum and I really want a dishwasher.
I've never cared about dishwashers. I've never owned one and never felt that I was missing out. But now with two children and very little time I wash hundreds of dishes a day and people eye my hands nervously as if I have some sort of skin condition.
We're about to renovate our house. We need a new kitchen and until that happens I have to wait. So for now I'm dreaming of a dishwasher and the day that I will have one.
Some people are turned on by fame, fortune or living in Paris (which I did and it was great) But now things like sleeping through the night without interruption, wearing clothes that are not covered in mashed banana and having the time to clean the house properly are my secret fantasies. And in particular a sexy stainless steel, integrated dishwasher.
In the meantime, I will write this blog to keep up my spirits and to share my many domestic dilemmas and delights when trying to raise kids, do auditions and meet writing deadlines - let alone find a reliable and affordable builder, cook gourmet meals that all the family will eat and perhaps finally write my book.
It looks like this year will be just as busy as the last.
