We are painting…

September 6, 2012

Everything has been moved out, my Father in Law the painting machine has come to stay and by Friday we should be able to cook.

Hmmmm I think next year it’s the poor neglected gardens turn. Like our new shed?

 

Monday was all about the preparation…

 

Then we painted like crazy!

 

I have no idea how we would have got this done without him…

This was last night… the kitchen and dining room are done.

 

And I was able to get the new toaster and kettle out…

Which I was way too excited about.

It’s all looking a bit too tasteful right now though so I am looking forward to getting our things in there and art on the walls so it’s more ‘us’ and lived in.

Still a way to go but at least we can use it now, I have loved cooking up a storm this week; A Mexican feast, steak and chips, omelette’s plus an amazing breakfast idea I’ll share with you tomorrow…

Biggie is slowly coming to terms with it all.

Can’t Cook…

August 31, 2012

Do you want to see the reason I cannot cook right now?

I feel like I need to show you…

The early stages were easy… we still had a fully functioning kitchen it was just messy. I look back on those days with fondness now… how easy it was when we could still have a glass of water or a cup of tea!

We knocked a few walls down and a new french door hole got made from a window frame and some beautiful reclaimed wood went down as our new floor.

  

More recently we got our new lights up… so excited for these.

 

The paint saga has been going since before even the walls came down… and is still going.

But in the past week the real work began… after a lovely anniversary breakfast this happened…

 So in the past week we haven’t cooked once… we have however learnt our local Thai takeaway menu by heart and become buddies with the waitress.

As of last night worktops have started to go in and although progress is slow (due to our choice of huge oak pieces for our tops) we will be there soon…

The future dining room…

 The future kitchen…

That long worktop is insane… so glad we went for it.

 

You never know I might actually be able to cook next week.

So excited about this.
