New waterlily leaves emerging each day now. What I like about his photo is my “twining's tea” grasp of the iPhone, reflected in the water!
I mentioned that I had a busy Spring planned, and it has kind of swept me off my feet.
After a busy and stimulating time in Melbourne, we returned to finalise details of our kitchen renovation. What started with considered review of articles in Choice about cooktops and ovens, gas vs. induction, finished by dragging ourselves into a lighting chain store, pointing disinterestedly at some spotlights and paying up asap.
In between, there was tile dust, jack-hammering, cement dust, a bench top that didn’t fit in the space left for it between the upper and lower cupboards and more. Oh, did I mention the 7am starts? Might sound reasonable to most people, but it means spending the day in a jetlag-like fog for me.
The good news is the main works were all finished within two weeks, and now we have beautiful bamboo floorboards and a lovely new, fully functioning kitchen with a designer space-age extractor, all looking very swish. We still need to sort out the tiles for the splashback, and a few other details, but we can take our time with that.
So here are a few photos:
THE NEW KITCHEN ARRIVES
One of the cabinets has this rather disturbing message written on it!
(Never did work out what it meant.)
Do you like the demolition-site aesthetic we’ve gone for with the splashback?
I think it’ll be a new trend.
More soon, and I promise it will be more art and book-related.
