Are you bored with the building posts yet? We've got another 8 weeks of this to go! This is our view currently - well, it was yesterday. Today that pile of red bricks just behind the mop have been built into a little pier to hold the house up - just a minor detail. This shot really does show the current flooring and lighting in all its glory. We've got lots of pointless pipes that need removing, and useful ones that need hiding. Just to your right is our inherited oven which has been rustling up those super quick suppers. Then we have a comedy fridge combo - the original that came with the house is definitely not ozone friendly but is helpfully our wine fridge doubling up as a work surface. Next to that is our fridge freezer which has started to make a dreadful noise - perhaps it overheard our discussions about American fridge freezers, but actually I think it was more that it just couldn't cope with the heat. Sadly, its days are numbered for we've bought our new fridge freezer and our first ever oven, all of our own choosing. We've indulged. In the same way that weddings create bridezillas, I'm afraid kitchen extensions create appliancezillas. We've gone for a glitzy Rangemaster with disco lights and a ginormous fridge. On the plus side, we were given a great discount by a local retailer who are very kindly holding onto all the bits until we're absolutely ready, unlike an online purchase where next day delivery is so unhelpful. And don't even get me started on taps - who knew there were so many to choose from. At least we've got the sink nailed. But I can't for the life of me find classic brushed stainless steel knobs and cup handles that I like anywhere. I have become such a kitchen bore. I bore myself.
