My Perfect Day


The builders have left.  They were a great bunch of guys but it is so nice to have my home back.  I can finally relax.

The kitchen is ready apart from a few finishing touches.  I am chuffed to pieces with it.  The building inspector came today and couldn’t keep his hands off the oak island worktop.  “Lovely - needs another coat of oil” he said.  

 

The weather is perfect today.  Warm, sunny, light breeze, no bugs.   We had lunch outside on the terrace – salad, chilled rose wine, cafe jazz;  I could have stayed there all day.  Rick had other ideas, he needed his afternoon walk.  We sauntered round the village and didn’t meet a single soul.  I think they were all having an afternoon siesta.  A very sleepy village today.

  3. The kitchen looks beautiful and so does the garden. Now we have proper summer weather for the bank holiday weekend and that doesn't happen often.

  4. Love the kitchen, love the idea of salad and rose. At last today here in the Dales it is finally still and warm. Wensleydale Show tomorrow and for once it will be good weather for it. But the roads will be clogged so a good day to stay home.

  8. Now, try and keep it that way. When we had our new kitchen the tidiness didn't last five minutes!

  10. It looks great. I like the pale grey cupboards...a colour I might go for when/if I ever get my kitchen renovated. What type of sink did you go for? I get fed up trying to keep my stainless steel one " stainless" !

    1. That's exactly why I opted for a double Belfast sink this time.

    2. Thats what I want ! Not necessarily double but maybe large enough to have a spray tap so I can bath the schnauzer in it so don't have to lean over the bath....hurts my back!
