Now that the new year has arrived, and is in danger of disappearing just as quickly and quietly. I’ve realised my kitchen is looking just a wee bit sad and care worn. I have lived here for 16 years – the wonderful feeling of moving in to an absolutely fantastic new, clean and untouched kitchen cannot be under-estimated on the list of things to have at least once before you kick the bucket! TI don’t really use the kitchen to the full extent that I could. When I have entertained, there always seems to be a gaggle of bodies at one end, and because the way the designers placed the integral cooker and ovens, there is no scope for more than one person to be at the business end. I have decided to have it redesigned and fitted out to make more of the space and to ensure the cooking space is in more natural light!
