Some Kitchen pics

I am duplicating this post from my All About The Boys Blog  as it shows how my kitchen looks now.  A detailed post on the before and after will come soon. 

I still think they sent me the email by mistake and will at any minute realise and withdraw the invitation.  Those who know me will know that cooking is not my *cough* strong point or rather something  I can, but prefer not to do.  I blame years of being waited on in the Army Mess.

Anyway until I’m thrown out of this exclusive and rather imposing club I will continue to masquarade as someone who cooks and reveal my kitchen as requested.

Can you spot whats missing ?

There it is !  The essential cooker and hob.  Apologies for the microwave, we really don’t use it that often .  If you look closely you might spot the Marie Claire cookery books ontop of it, never use them, just bought them because they have pretty cover pictures that match the colour of my kitchen.   The sign on the wall ?  Says it all really : Coffee, Tea or ME !

I love vintage and thrifted household items.  Here are a selection I have out on display.   You can follow the progress of the renovation of our home on this blog with a post on before and after transformation coming soon.

So there you go.  My kitchen. Take a minute to pop over and like the WORLDFOODS fusion of flavours facebook page and you will also be able to follow us as we cook (or attempt to) our way to Asian cooking heaven !

    Beautiful! Now, a rather dull and boring question:how do you keep your floors clean?

    Thank you. Actually the photo does make the floors look sparkling clean (which of course they are ) *cough* I wash the floors a couple of times a week and use those "magic" white sponge eraser things. They work a treat on scuff marks etc. xx

    Aww Lakota, thank you very much that is so lovely. I'm afraid I haven't been very good at pimping myself, just not my style so sure it won't come to anything but really, really appreciate the people who took the time to vote for me off their own backs : ) Means so muchmore to me xx
