I am sure you have noticed things have been a little quiet recently in the kitchen.
Following our Broseley saga I *shock- horror* felt a bit estranged from the very heart of Pig Row, finding myself scurrying in and out to make basic meals, on route to trips to the garden, or to catch Little D on his mission to steal the milk money box. It has certainly not been somewhere I have wanted to hang around for any space of time.
This has made me rather sad, I cannot remember when I last baked a loaf, or whipped up a cake or tested out a new creation for my recipe book. I like to sit in the kitchen and just... dream really, read a recipe book, drink a pot of tea all to myself, arrange my cookie cutters in order of prettiness (oh... come on! I know I am not the only person who does this).
But at last the end is nigh.
Tomorrow the heating engineers cometh. Ok we've been here before but this time I am hopeful, truly hopeful that the sealant they are putting in the system will bring with it the start of our wood oven lifestyle. We have had a bit of a tidy up and found somewhere to store our food which helps a lot and there has been talk about having the table back in the kitchen by the weekend.
We've a long way to go but I think at last we are making progress. Spring has sprung!
