Ah yes - stacking the dishwasher. This can be stretched into taking half an hour or even more.
We’ve got an electricity contract whose price drops to 5p/kWhr at 0030, so naturally stacking will involve the very careful placement of absolutely everything rather like a game of Tetris - then setting the timer to come on in the middle of the night. This is very satisfying and saves an impressive 10p or so.
As to brown sauce. Yes, HP really was the ne plus ultra with its commendably improbable French translation down the side. But then it became the plaything of big-bastard multinationals who moved production abroad. Why??? Who on earth buys this stuff outside the UK?
One has to take a stand, so I have started buying Stokes Brown Sauce, and Moor’s “Amoor Chipotle Ketchup”. Neither are the same, but that’s the point. They have qualities of their own. If my first love is going to do a runner, then I can do the same.
