New Kitchen Sink

 It has been all go in the kitchen over the last few days and at long last I now have a properly functioning sink, mixer tap, and new units.  So it has been a bit of a day and a result. It has been bliss to be able to mix hot and cold water.  Wherever else I have lived I have always had mixer taps.  I know I am sad, but little things make a real difference.  

To celebrate I have scrubbed the washer down and it is currently on a proper drum wash.  Hopefully will be able to use the dishwasher soon as OH has replaced the tubing and fittings there as well.  It did not like the previous old system that was there.  We will see.  

Equally though, the new sink is lovely too. We have had to cut the worktop to insert it, but that means I can use the area for food preparation as well.  Kitchen counter tops are at a premium here.

Slowly, slowly catch a monkey hope will be able to replace some of the other units soon.  The units we have in are over 25 years old.

The new units are a shaker design and the doors are a navy blue colour.  Have gone for white, navy and grey for the kitchen this time round.

Right am off to potter loads to do as usual.

Will catch up soon.



P.S. The dishwasher works.  That is going to save me no end of time and effort.  I also have loads of jars that need cleaning for preserves.  It did frighten me to death though; I was in the bathroom and heard like a massive clog dance going on in the kitchen followed by loud buzzing and then the dishwasher door shot open.  Apparently it is a feature on the model we bought!  Now that really did startle me.
