In My Kitchen

Being completely unprepared for this months "In My Kitchen" I've taken the prompt rather literally this time - and no "pre-blog tidying" has gone on! I'm not sure we've ever shown you our kitchen as a whole. Its rather chaotic in different ways; the complete mish-mash of cupboards, empty spaces, broken drawers and different colours of worktop come to mind before we even start on the added everyday clutter.


Looking around, this month of particular note is the broken down freezer which we've decided has given itself up for lent! We were going to hurry out and sort a replacement, but having dealt with the food that wouldn't fit in the fridges little ice box the urgency has gone. It'll have to be done soon though.


The chop saw sitting in the middle of the kitchen is certainly not a normal feature, nor the large stack of cardboard packaging to its right. A birthday present for Joe which should hopefully make the upcoming cabinetry a little easier.


Talking of cabinetry, without the cabinets in the bathroom there is no sink, and so toothbrushes are sitting on the kitchen side still.


Finally, some rather pink lilies that Joe found in the reduced section at 10% of their original price. Bargain.

  1. That saw is a beauty! As for my kitchen, it's always a mess. I spend all my time in there and very little of that time is for tidying up.

  2. Being a cottage my kitchen is very small and limited worktop space. You kind of have to keep it tidy and the dishwasher stacked otherwise there wouldn't be any room to do anything else. Hope the bathroom is coming along ok. You will have a beautiful home by the time you finished.

    1. Thanks Mitzi. The size of the kitchen was one of the things we loved about this house. We enjoy spending time in it and often find friends will hang out at the table (just behind the main shot) while we're cooking which is lovely.

  3. A Come As You Are guest to the In My Kitchen series! I wish there were more true to life posts like this. Good to see someone else has random pieces of workshop equipment in their kitchen.

    1. Thanks :) The saw has now found a new home, but it did spend about a week in the kitchen while we cleared it a space elsewhere!

  5. I'm not brave enough to share the true chaos of my kitchen (or the rest of my house), just tiny corners that exclude most of the messy piles! ;-)
