and was getting very impatient.
It became rapidly obvious when we moved in that all our stuff just doesn't fit.Toad Hall was larger and had a double garage which was wider and deeper than standard and a garden shed. Now we just have a shed and a loft for the house overflow. Our kitchen has been badly designed not only in use of space but also in ergonomic terms. It is an L shaped room, with a seating area in one end of the L, a dining area in the far end of the L and the kitchen area in the corner. The kitchen range is on an opposite wall to the sink and that is about a 10 foot walk between the hob and the sink. This is dangerous as this is also the route between the sitting area and the dining area. Imagine me with my weak hands carrying a pan of boiling water to the sink whilst someone else is walking from either the hallway or the sitting area. Disaster waiting to happen.
So the new kitchen is being installed in January and all the kitchen stuff in the container down the hill can be bought up once this is finished.
Meanwhile I could still go ahead and order the large dresser for the dining area. It was commissioned way back in October and only arrived today. It is huge! Three metres long (10 foot give or take). All that storage, and now we can get the Christmas decorations out this week.
This was the space before.
We like it so much we are thinking of commissioning a desk cupboard for me in the same area.
I will put the other table and the four chairs I painted on Ebay this weekend. Exciting times.
