Kitchen Diary part 1

Finally, after years of talking about it, the building work has started on my new kitchen.

Week 1 - having cleared as much as possible into storage, the old kitchen suddenly looks spacious and I wonder what I have done. The builders arrive, as does the rain, and by mid week the progress seems disappointing slow. Reader, I am impatient. By the end of the week there are a set of lovely neat trenches ready for the new footings and I'm happy again.
