Spring Distractions

We are still living in the midst of dust and disorganisation. However, it is not too long now and I will finally be able to post the before and after of our kitchen. So in the mean time, I found distraction via the Topshop and House of Fraser website, roll on Springtime.

The Eldest

It was inevitable that the distribution of not having a kitchen, would it effect us all in different ways. C our youngest doesn't like the noise and wants to stay out all day, L is getting very tried from being woken by the early morning arrival of our builders, R is off at work during the days and it ok with all, and as for me...Well I miss my blog time, taking photos on our kitchen table and not having a washing machine. Actually it is not too bad, time is flying by and the excitement of the future kitchen revamp is too wonderful to contain. My ideas are flowing and de-cluttering is a must for this new space of ours. I took these photos this morning before we set of to find a radiator.

Over the last few weeks, I have been thinking long and hard about a splash back in the kitchen. I collected some samples and showed the above to R, sadly he feels that we should go with the original idea of worktop and low splash back in the same. Not sure myself, but happy to go with it!

We started...

Our girls, on a bright start to the year. It is nice to have a few mornings, when it is not too grey and wet. We are trying to get back into a daily routine, but the cold winter mornings, keep me wishing for an extra hour or two in bed. We have started to empty the kitchen, as the builders start next week. It is very daunting trying to get so much done in such a short space of time. Here's hoping that it will all come together.
