We are busy bees at the moment trying to finish all those jobs around the house that we have put off for the past ten years! I've never believed that the house we live in now is our 'forever home' so have always been loathed to spend any money on it, wanting instead to sell it. I have *finally* come around to the fact that if we did spend a little bit we would actually create a beautiful home and although I can't do anything about the small garden and the fact that its shell is pure 1980's utilitarian architecture, it is in a brilliant location and we can't find anything better that we can afford that is worth the upheaval of moving for right now!
So armed with a very long list of things I want to get done I have started with the kitchen and just had a new cooker hood fitted that was a bargain in the John Lewis sale and I found these shelves for £20 on ebay. I have also bought some white metro tiles with some grey grout, also reduced in the January sales, after admiring all the cool kids kitchens on Pinterest! Of course as soon as the cooker hood was fitted the kettle stopped working and as I went online to look at buying a new oven, the freezer packed up too and I had to make an emergency run around the village to friends freezers to save our meat - such is life!
