Now, as we grow older, our priorities are beginning to change, and we are slowly re-organising everything to cope with a different type of existence (grandchildren, animals, Lord M's unpredictable behaviour, etc).
We've recently installed new dark brown, double glazed, aluminium doors, that not only keep out draughts, but also let in masses of light (they look wonderful). We're in the process of building the 'tower'. And now it's the turn of the kitchen.
Actually we love our ramshackle kitchen, but it's no longer practical. It's been there for nearly 40 years and it's time to change.
I have 'a man' coming in this morning to have a look. I don't really want an 'off-the-shelf' Ikea style kitchen, but I do need more space.
Decisions, decisions. More of this anon!
