Caree trying to be helpful

:lol:
Dad decided he would have a go at some washing this evening while I was sitting down watching TV.

"Why haven't we got any washing powder?". "We have dad it's under the sink where its always been" No it isn't , yes it is a few times over. I go and put it on top of the machine for him.
"Where are the towels to go in the machine?" I explain where he could look- downstairs loo, towel rail , linnen basket etc"What program do they need- is it a No 5? ( about 4 washing machines ago). I explain No it's a cotton cycle.
--and then you need to turn it on.
"What more than one button-why?" "One to turn it on, one to select the program and then the start button" "That;s three- how am I supposed to remember all that?
I go through it again slowly.
"How much powder do I put in- a cupful?" ... "No less than half will do"
Yes you guessed it- "Does it go in the machine or in the drawer?"
The drawer- "Which one?". The left one
and then you need to press the start button.
"Which ones that?"

I'm looking forward to later when I have to explain the tumble drier!

Oh Henrietta, I'm sorry that did make me laugh, although I'm sure it must have driven you demented! I hope the washing got done eventually and is there any chance you can watch your programme on catch up? :)
