The kitchen is looking a little different but still has a long way to go, at least it's no longer 'POO Brown'!

We need to put the final coat on the walls, and paint the bench tiles white, clean the masking tape off the windows, paint the skirting boards, fit out the pantry, install more internal shelves in the upper cupboards, and make the blackboard wall. Just ad it to the list of work still to be done around the house. It's enjoyable, but difficult with the kids and me being back at work. The place is amazingly functional when you can find it underneath the random power tools and renovating paraphernalia.

Eventually we'll be done, and it doesn't really fuss us, it's our little place and that alone brings a smile to our respective faces.

Looove the shiny new oven. The flowers are a lovely touch. We get our keys on Monday so I think I'll go to Trash & Triv on Sunday to stock up on fresh flowers to put around our new house. That way I'll have something pretty to look at during the dreaded moving process.

Well, the fireplace looks like its been there for years. It's come together very well. And, the kitchen is starting to take shape too. I like the decorator touches. Looking forward to seeing it on our next visit. Dad
