I’m really happy today because the kitchen is finally finished. The carpenter finished yesterday, everything is installed now, the over the range microwave and cooker look amazing and work perfectly, and all the other little appliances and bits and pieces that we had delivered are now in place.
All the nice little extras like mugs and a wine rack are also in place and it is looking lovely and really different. The new cabinet doors and handles have transformed the look of the kitchen, making it look much more modern than it did before. So we are both really delighted with it and now it’s all cleaned up and finished it does look really really good.
And that’s great because I know I’ve been fixating on it a bit, and I have to say that the way I fixated on studying to get the over the range microwave was a bit weird. The range cooker I chose really quickly, but I obsessed over the buying of that microwave too much.
Which means that tomorrow I will be starting with the upstairs painting project. My family think I have gone a bit crazy doing all this so quickly, but the way I’m looking at it is I have to strike while the iron is hot and trying get as much done as possible so that I can have more time to myself more time to my family and my job. I know from the past how easy it is the projects to drag out to the point that you get used to things being half finished and end up just ignoring them for years. You know what I mean, you have been to people’s houses where rooms are half painted and have been for years, just because they have got so used to seeing it that it’s no longer an issue for them.
So it’s a really upbeat time for me. I know in life you can never say that things are going to be good, but at the moment things are really good things are falling into place, long may that continue, and I’m hoping to update you with good progress on my painting project upstairs in my next blog post.
