Today is day one of our kitchen remodel. We spent the entire day clearing out the kitchen in preparation for tomorrow and Stan our kitchen man arriving with his crew and ripping out the kitchen. After a lot of false starts it feels a bit surreal.
Clearing out the kitchen look about 8 hours. It’s amazing how much ‘stuff’ you can accumulate especially if you have a kitchen gadget problem like I do. I had an entire cupboard full of baking forms, trays, molds and cookie cutters. I haven’t baked anything in over 2 yrs. It’s just something I got out of the habit of doing when I joined Weight Watchers but it’s something I will getting back to doing…. when I have a new kitchen. Har! That has been my mantra since moving into this house- in about 5 weeks that piper will have to be paid. Squidge even says it to me, while watching The Great British Bake Off she turned to me and said ‘when we get out new kitchen can we bake that?’.
Most of our kitchen gear is up in the loft and some of it is in the garage. We’re currently camped in the dining room and are only missing a sink, dishwasher and washing machine. I think the washing dishes is going to be the most inconvenient bit of this entire process. I have a bucket w/ water in the ‘kitchen’ and will be bringing that up the the bath at the end of the day to wash them. Fun times! It’s either that or takeaways every night and my wallet and waistline can not afford that. Not to say there won’t be some ready meals/takeaways in my future.
So that’s it from Day 1. I’m going to try to update as often as possible. We have a few decisions that need to be made so don’t be surprised if I ask for advice and your opinion on things.
Thanks for reading!
