Complete list of things in our kitchen at the moment:
- one Aga cooker (turned off)
- one kitchen sink (disconnected and lying on floor)
- a couple of dozen bags of rubble
Work has finally begun in earnest on our new kitchen. Jen and I ripped the old one out on New Year's Day, the electricians were here on Friday, the plasterer and plumber began work today, and the bloke doing the floor arrives on 21st. Then work can begin on the kitchen proper (scheduled for completion
late February mid-March).
Last night, it suddenly occurred to us, how are we going to do the washing up without a kitchen to do it in? This afternoon, for the first (and hopefully last) time in my life, I went to buy a washing-up bowl.
As washing-up bowls go, it's pretty natty. In fact, I'd go so far as to say it's the nattiest washing-up bowl I've ever owned. It's a fetching blue colour. It goes rather well with my piercing blue eyes.
The new washing-up bowl had a sticker on the side:
Large washing up bowl.
Scratch resistant and easy to clean.
Which kind of begs the question, if you own a dishwasher, what on earth would possess you to buy a washing-up bowl?
You don't have a dog and bark yourself.
