Wednesday night is 'The Grandad Call'. I used to find that talking on the phone took a big chunk of time out of the evening, and you can't get much done during a phone call. Right?
The Grandad call routine has become quite elaborate over the past year and a half.
(1) I do my weekly clothes wash on Saturdays so that it is dry in time for Wednesday
(2) Instead of washing up throughout the day on Wednesday, all pots and pans are left until the end of the day
(3) Wednesday afternoon is ideal for baking and generally making a mess in the kitchen.
(4) One cordless phone and a handsfree ear piece, and the call begins some time after 6pm...
Gary often asks Grandad what I've been getting up to over the past week, and Grandad's answer is always the same "he's been washing up..."!
