seven year itch (part 2)

mock wood laminate table tops. hope that was the right choice ☻
the kitchen boys have gone. i've been elbow deep in soapy water and am getting baths and showers of the unbelievable kind. i am so not a cleaning lady, but am taking up brush and dustpan right now. 

kitchen sink (and hidden dish washer) turned 45°
... and water. splashing it all over. not just the kitchen either, but also in the front room, where i completely forgot to cover the open books sideboard. yep. i have been sorry about that. 

all so pristine and white. for now. just for now
naturally, we are singing while doing all of this cleaning malakey, for a new wave has come and i am riding it, even if i am afraid of deep water. i will be singing till sunday night, when i hopefully finish all chores.

as good as done with putting things back in livable order, i mean, the complete ground floor level
how do you like my new kitchen then, he? can i say i am completely smitten, i love it and i want to kiss it, and kiss it all over again. and then start right at the beginning of kissing it. 

vases. as blurry as blurry comes
this is probably the best of all the renov works that have gone on. i mean, seven years is no mean feat, and seeing an end to the strain is just so relieving that i think i can now let go of my fysiotherapist (joking). 

yeah, oh YEAH! totally blew that promise to self to stay away from cake. too good!
soon it'll be drinks and tapas for sure, over those fancy worktops, and people filling the space and i allow you to stroke my sideboards too. come on, you really fancy that, don't you? ☺

have a beautiful sunday and enjoy another week in the docks! 


  1. It's gorgeous! Love the counter tops. Did you say the dishwasher is hidden inside the counter or below? I'm imagining you kissing your kitchen ..... smooch smooch! �� I be doing the same. xoxo

  2. Give that handsome kitchen a big sloppy kiss from me!
    Finally Woolfy! You must feel like a million bucks about now! Really happy for you x

  3. it is beautiful! You were right not to get an Ikea kitchen. I made the mistake of buying their worktops for my second ikea kitchen. And ten years later the laminated top of the worktops is flaking off. Shitty quality.

  4. The kitchen it fantastic! Yahoo! Enjoy!
