I need cake.
My ancient kitchen is going to be ripped out starting Monday.
In 1994 we walked into a1970s strip pine kitchen complete with dark pine clad ceiling, pine units, stripped pine doors and windows and vinyl floor.
It was actually two rooms knocked into one at some point in the past so the floor levels and walls are all out of alignment and unusual shapes, and I have only replaced white goods and painted over the surfaces in the years we have been here to create a light and airy space.
I still use the same gas hob and same cooker etc – they have to be 20 yrs old and have worked brilliantly – but are starting to let me down now. Especially the gas oven.
Time to make a change.
New floor, ceiling and lighting, plumbing, electrics, cabinets, worktops, hob and oven… well you get the idea. The lot.
The builder thinks it may take up to 2 weeks. Depending…
Since I am accustomed to having a relatively quiet home during the day I may find the next 2 weeks…. challenging.
Exciting! Absolutely! But challenging… I may be working in the evenings for the next 2 weeks.
Bye bye old kitchen. Hello new.
