The main problem is that Japanese companies all tend to collaborate and have standard sizes for everything. So my kitchen unit would happily accommodate the Panasonic. Should be an easy fit. The Miele would not fit easily, would require the counter to be raised (which I actually need doing because i'm tall) and then also need all sorts of adjustments. Whilst we will get the counters raised eventually, finding all the money for all the things that need doing in the case that we choose miele is such a lot and I'm not sure we'll have time before Christmas. My husband knows I had my heart set on the miele but I think we just can't afford it. We also need the garden doing and that costs a LOT here. I'll probably have a go at building raised beds and herb spirals but I can't dig up concrete nor build fences. Can you believe though that just those things would cost almost ¥1 million yen. Why are things so expensive here?! 😭 the garden is probably only 30-50m2 as well 😅
Anyway the garden is sort of our priority as we have a 2 and 5 year old that want to be outside and I have chores to do inside so need something secure and safe.
Sorry again i'm going off on a tangent...

My problem with calendars is you have to know what day today is for it to be useful, and I never know. I can usually get within a month of the date, but have to ask my computer or another person if I want it closer than that. Just not a functioning part of my brain. Never has been. Possibly part of my brain damage.
