Kitchen Update Is Go!

A couple of posts ago, I wittered on about some things getting done, some things never getting done, and some things getting done eventually. A lot more posts even further ago, I wrote about my impending new kitchen layout, and the purchase of worktop, taps and cupboard doors at bargaintastic new year sale prices. And then nothing happened...

My 2 tricky tradespeople finally, finally, yay!!!!!, now have a day when they can both be in the same place at the same time - ie my house. Got a phonecall yesterday, almost out of the blue after all this time, to say its going to be Kitchen Makeover Day next Thursday!!! Funny how I was just clearing out the under-sink cupboard, stripping it back to essentials only, just before the call. Will now have to shift a truckload of Midwinter to a safe corner of the house, and empty all the cupboards ready for The Day Of Mayhem.

Will post a before pic of the whole room, instead of just the "pretty bits", before it all gets annihilated by workmen. Then, in several months time I will do a big reveal of the new look on here. Joking, its all getting done in A DAY - yes, the kitchen IS that small. I'm not good at house-moving, things involving packing and tend to leave these things til lastminute.com panic is setting in. Well, not this time.... I am armed, with bubblewrap and plastic crates. Just one more cup of tea first...

Oh lordy, just realised I'm listening to someone murdering re-interpreting Wuthering Heights mashed with Kate Nash. Interesting....

My kitchen needs a makeover...you're welcome to come over:) I found you at my friend's agirlsguidetoturning50. Following you from Trapani, Sicily!

Hi Ciccia - thank you for popping over! Kitchen-wise, it's taken the whole afternoon just to choose a sink; if Rome wasn't built in a day, my kitchen won't be made-over in a decade!!!

I for one, am excited to see the unsavory bits of your kitchen before the beautiful feasts appear! Makes me feel so much more normal! Bet it isn't as bad as my undercupboards!
I always pop over every day for my inspiration and my daily chuckle and marvel at you, my dear Trashlespark!

Oh bless you Kim! I'll hide the dirty dishes in the oven then take a photo tomorrow. Rising damp, missing floor tiles, cobwebs - the lot!
