A little kitchen spring clean
The little kitchen in question belongs to my eldest! We spent over an hour cleaning it, washing up all the bits and rearranging it, and I think it looks really cute now. The two units are wooden and fit in the fireplace in our kitchen (which is most certainly earmarked for a range cooker one day *sigh*). I think it looks sweet, how about you? It's getting quite battered after two years, especially around the taps, but I like it that way and I hope my grandchildren will play with it one day. I especially like the curtain across the little cupboard and that my little girl goes all hostess on me sometimes... hearing "would you like some tea my dear?" from a three year old is quite disconcerting!
We went to Mum's today for lunch and had lovely roast chicken then Christmas pudding after (it was a good one she got on sale) along with some Sangria (also on sale!). She gave me the newest 25 Beautiful Homes and a Pilgrim bracelet to match the necklace I got for Christmas. The girls got some dresses with pretty retro prints on, lucky things.
There is a horrible smell in the air in this part of town today, I think the wind's blowing in an odd direction as it smells just like pig poo. Yuck. This reminds of why although I love country style I could never actually live there! We've had quite a few candles burning to get rid of the pong including a Yankee rose tea light in the cute little house below.
My husband was in an oddly generous mood today. We went to Tesco and he bought the girls each a present - little one got an In The Night Garden character to add to her collection and my eldest got the Dr Who set below. I think the little tiny figures (Adipose) are sooo cute. I'm in love with the real David Tennant but this model does not do him any justice! He bought me the pretty CK/Tesco ottoman rose bag, so that's now hanging on the hall peg rail holding all the scarves, gloves and hats. I think the lovely colours really cheer me up.
Sorry for the excessive amount of pictures today, I think there are more pictures than there are words! Tonight I think we'll either watch Hot Fuzz or a bit of The Mighty Boosh as we've started watching them from the beginning, very funny and surreal. Have a nice evening all xxx
