This week life has been returning to normal here at The House With The Blue Door. Busy, but normal again - phew. After five weeks our new kitchen is finished. Hooray! It's been a long haul and we are delighted with the result. It was finished almost two weeks ago and we've been gradually moving everything back in to the new cupboards and finding new places for things. It's meant that we've had a big clear-out and got rid of lots of stuff along the way which has been a very good thing. So, at long last here are some photos ... ta dah!
This is what it looked like after the walls were damp-proofed, a few weeks ago. Clover seemed to enjoy exploring in here and quite liked sleeping in a basket on top of the washing machine.
I've really enjoyed having our room back again, cooking and using the new sink. It shows how much we take everyday objects for granted when we don't have them for a while.
Whilst I was washing up a few evenings ago I caught sight of the sky and went outside with my camera to record it. After a very hot day the clouds were being illuminated by the setting sun.
The bright blue sky was full of soft grey cloudlets with silver edges.
It was beautiful, and unusual.
It reminded me of one of those skies you see in Renaissance paintings.
After a very hot week it's been a cooler day today, with warm sunshine and some very heavy showers. The weather's been wonderful lately, but I'm not a fan of very hot weather so it's relief to feel a bit more comfortable. Hope the week ahead isn't too hot or cold for you, and that you have a chance to stop and notice the good things x
