Bland kitchen - Bad Kitchen

Bland kitchen
Originally uploaded by amasc

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.

Bad Kitchen

The original kitchen HAD to go even though it was classic 70s Brown Movement. Three different brown patterns on worktops, walls and the floor, even the hob was in two shades of brown.

So sore

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!

I think I've set up a link between my flickr and the blog, if you can see this, I have.

So so-so.

This is going to be a learning experience, I have done absolutely no research on how blogs work but signing up was easy and free. The plan is to use this as a repository for images, news and reflections on our move to Vietnam, alternatively, it may just end up as one of those single post blogs that never get beyond setting up.

Time will tell.
