At last

(Picture by JJ)

After living here for 4 years, 4 months and 1 week, we finally had our first meal sat at a table...and how fabulous it was.  When we moved in the kitchen was tiny, with an even tinier breakfast bar!!  Not suitable at all for 5 people (even though one of them had a high chair!).  So after adding a bedroom, moving a bathroom and a bedroom, then knocking a couple of other internal walls down, having 2 Christmas lunches on our knee!!!!, we had the space to put up a table.  We still need to paint and sort out the flooring, but heck...we really, really needed that table.

It must feel wonderful to come to the end of such a big renovation, enjoy your new kitchen and table. x

Pippa?! What are you doing here, aren't you supposed to be busy birthing a babe? Lol

Had our first meal in over 3 months round a table last night. We were sat amongst total chaos and tins of paint but it makes such a difference to family meal times to be sat at a table!

Hi, I've been looking at your blog this morning. love your crafts. BTW, we just got a dining room table after living in our house for nearly 5 months. We used tv trays, our laps, and often sat on the floor. But the table really made a big difference. I love it and I know you will love yours! Simple things that you appreciate when you didn't have them before...
