Merry Christmas!

The kitchen is finished, the new worktops are fitted and my taps have running water and I have a hob to cook on....and only just in time too!  Phew.... and it only took 16 weeks.... and no, if I had known how long it would take and how stressful it would be to sort out the problems and issues we had, I would not have done it.... 
a bird's eye view... 
I am getting used to the lighter colour of the worktops and actually like them!
the new sinks because they cracked the sink in the last worktop when they installed it, so I went with two smaller ones this time round.  The large one was supposed to be on the righthand side but I don't mind, its not a problem having them this way round, it just meant that the plumber had to rework all the pipes and connections for the insinkerator and stuff when he came to connect me up!

So that is it.... yay!  Now I can cook Christmas dinner!! 
Happy dance.... happy dance....


  1. I'm so glad to hear that it is finally done and you can now settle down to getting your Christmas sorted.
    The kitchen looks wonderful but I don't think I could have dealt with the stress of how long it all took - I think I might have wanted to kill someone LOL
    Have a wonderful Christmas Annette.
