We had a plan when we moved into this house. A new kitchen, something in steel and dark wood and maybe duckegg blue with fantastic flags on the floors and probably an extension. The kind of thing that will look magnificent for about two years before it becomes impossibly dated but by that time you've stopped noticing it anyway.
As is the way with plans they didn't turn out exactly as envisioned. Once we decided to rent out the house bland, beech-type cupboards and slate-esque worksurfaces were ordered. So lacking in distinction is this installation that I had to put some lemons out to stop everything fading to beige.
A milestone was reached with the sixth of the eleven injections required/recommended. We hit the jackpot with four in one week but so far so lucky and side effects have been minimal.
A certain person gets special cream to put on which dulls sensation in the site because he's a wuss. He outright refused to let me take a picture of the cream on his backside, not only a wuss but a spoilsport too!
