From the kitchen


Got to share tonight's tea with you! I don't usually go in for food sharing online, but this is one of the easiest, tastiest, inexpensive meals I've made for such a long time and it is definitely worth showing you. Baby potatoes with olive oil, sage, rosemary, thyme, salt and pepper, and chicken breasts bashed... Continue Reading →

Kitchen Update – nearly there!!


I just wanted to let you have a brief update of what has been happening in the kitchen today and yesterday, but there are no photos because I have lost track of my camera during the movement of cupboards and things today. We are at the stage now where Kevin is doing battle with the... Continue Reading →

Kitchen Update – Part 9


Nearly there!! Since the last update so much has happened in the kitchen that it's almost ready to be called a room again.

As promised, here's an update on the old kitchen situation: After much weighing up and umming and ahhing last night, the first wall of cupboards was completely stripped last night and all the tiles were taken off. The living room is like a bombsite with all the boxes of kitchen stuff and to make it... Continue Reading →

Kitchen Remodelling – Part 1


We moved into this house over 14 years ago and at the time and we had very little money with which to make the house our new home. We did a few bits of decorating to make the rooms ours, and over the years we have gradually redone the bathroom, the living room, Ethan's bedroom... Continue Reading →

Giddy Giddy Giddy!!!


My daily blog post is late today because I've been caught up with something exciting and it's been making me giddy. We've been given some kitchen units (for free!) and we've been measuring up and trying to work out how they will fit into ours. I've been after a new kitchen for the past 14... Continue Reading →
