Last Thursday the old kitchen cupboards were taken out and new ones installed and I posted photos so you know what they look like. It has taken this long for Phil and myself to begin finding places for all the things that go in kitchen cupboards and we have found there is a lot more room in the new cupboards than we first thought so that is a big 'right'. Reece is due tomorrow to do the grouting around the tiles so then I will be able to arrange things on the benches as well which will finish that part of the work.
Unfortunately I do not like the new sink and miss having a draining section on both sides instead of just the one. The family were telling me on Sunday night that it was quite normal and in some cases there is just a sink with the draining part actually cut into the bench top. The worse part though is, because there is now a section between me and the sink, as the cupboards are deeper, that now when I do the dishes it is playing havoc with my back. One of the worst things I can do is to lean slightly forward (similar to taking items out of the shopping trolley at the check-out ... which Phil now does) and this I am having to do when washing up. Fortunately, there being just the two of us there are never a great number of dishes and Phil keeps offering to wash-up but so far I've managed. He has enough to do without me adding to his current chores.
A huge 'RIGHT' was going to Kelmscott on Sunday afternoon for a BBQ tea.
I had my second x-ray yesterday but doubt I'll hear anything before next week because of Friday being a public holiday. The lady took a second x-ray and I am not sure if that was a good or bad sign but fingers are crossed for a good result.
I still can't give a 'right' tick about the weather as still NO rain whatsoever but fortunately the days have cooled down to the mid-20s with much cooler nights, and we can go outside without being cooked by the sun. We've even had our airconditioning set on hot instead of cold a couple of times which would be the first time for about six months or more plus an extra blanket on our beds. Hopefully next Thursday that may be a plus instead of a minus. Once again, fingers crossed for rain. Watering the garden is becoming such a chore after six months and it would be great to be able to put the hoses away for a few months.
P.S. I just borrowed the two picture as I think blogs look more effective with more than just words. Talking of words, I apologise for always writing so much. I just get carried away!!
