I’m dying for my new kitchen. My new old kitchen. My new old kitchen secondhand from someone else’s house bought cheap on Trademe. Just give me a freaking sink and a real cooktop and some prep space that doesn’t feel like I’m working at knee height. I’ll be happy, I promise!

It’s finally starting to happen… The builder and husband shuffled round a few of the cabinets and connected some pipes – the dishwasher is in place but not hard-wired – the sparky comes on Monday. Then I’ll even have working power points!! I won’t have to have the kettle in the bathroom anymore! Bliss.

You have no idea how much I’ve been hanging out for this. Okay, maybe you do. Can’t wait!!!!
