A few days turned into a few weeks, but finally I did get my new kitchen.
All shiny and new, already it has transformed into the heart of the home. I am enjoying cooking – rehearsing familiar recipes with a new oven and hob, working out how to get the best of the space and experimenting with new recipes.
I even managed to have my first major spillage. Just bottling a batch of my apple sauce I thought the lid was screwed tight, but sadly it wasn’t. A full jar all over the new work surface and up the walls. <Sigh> But on the bright side, I have truly christened the new space and can get on with enjoying it, making a mess in it and not feel guilty.
