Painc Looms When Kitchen Visits Suggested

There are occasions when I look around the kitchen and shudder.  We’ve rather let it go and the worktop around the kitchen sink has now got that many marks and scrapes that it’s in very great danger of needing replacement.  That’s not an easy task for anyone to do, let alone a person with mobility…

Embarrassingly Tatty Kitchen Needs The Skip

Oh my poor old kitchen is looking desperately dowdy.  It’s nearly twenty years since we moved in, everything absolutely brand new.  In fact we had to wait for the builders to finish one or two little niggling jobs before the site agents could release the key once they’d had the critical ‘yes, funds paid in…


Antique Or Old Fashioned Sentimentality
