Ok this may sound strange, but the occasional times i don't do the dishes at night - i feel incredibly guilty. Most of the time I will do them late at night before bed when I am dead tired and should just go to bed. Lately I have been not bothering and just doing them the next day. But i feel so much guilt!
Doing them earlier in the night is difficult as after dinner I am then getting DS bathed and off to bed, then the sound of the dishes clanging keeps him awake.
So yeah, when do you do your dishes? Are you bothered with leaving the kitchen in a mess till the next day? I seem to be for some strange reason.
And by 'important question' I actually mean silly pointless question lol. But it seems important to me for some strange reason.

If I cook, I clean as I go, so after dinner is eaten there are only our plates & cutlery which go in the dishwasher. If by chance there is a mess and I can't be bothered, I turn off the light (out of sight, out of mind), but always regret it in the morning. I hate waking up to a dirty kitchen.

I always try to rinse all the food bits off a night, then I put them in the dishwasher in the morning.
I remember when I first moved in with my partner, he would insist that dishes should be done on the weekends, lol, and just leave them all til then.... Boy did he have a lot to learn!

The look on his face, priceless! The stench when he removed the lid, vomit worthy!

Yes! Dishwasher is put on every night before I go to bed & hubby unpacks while he is having breakfast. I clean my large pots & pans as I go so like a pp it's just a rinse of the plates. Same as the laundry will put in dryer before he goes to work.
When I was younger my Mum would make me wash up as soon as I'd finish dinner so I guess I just do it automatically now.

Nope. I've been leaving it till I run out if something. Don't have a dishwasher and can't be stuffed after tea. DH thinks it's disgusting (and tbh it is after a couple of days) but he's only washed up twice in his life so he can get stuffed.
