My Kitchen Story

Hello again everyone, god is it really Monday already?  Just a heads up but next weeks blog might not be out in time as this week I am going to be busy with not 1 but 2 events!  One of them being the 3foot festival ;).  Do you remember that blog from last year?  If not you can find it here.  God I can't wait super excited!

Anyway I'm here to talk to you about my kitchen. This post is an entry for the “My Kitchen Story” Linky Challenge, sponsored by Fairy Platinum” and link to  

My kitchen is very small, and that's not even the worse part.  I don't mind small but the storage is just....well I hope my landlord didn't pay a lot of money to get it done is all I'm saying.  Though the way this house has been looked after I doubt very much.  That all leads to fun ways of how to store things though.  

This actually one of those flashy bottles of water you can get. I got this from a restaurant in Southend, pretty awkward story actually as I wanted water but couldn't understand what the waitress was saying I just wanted tap but ended up saying yes to whatever she said....turns out it was this which was quite expensive...opps.  I now use it to store my spaghetti in though and I think it works quite well. 

I got these a few weeks back from Asda aren't they adorable?  I think so anyway, I didn't want to get cainsters with tea or coffee on them as I don't drink either of them that much.  though saying that I got some coffee the other day for frappuccinos.  Instead I put brown rice, oats...and well the very few tea bags I have left inside them.  I do have some clear canisters but I've got a bit bored of them to be honest. I'm thinking of making them into little night lights though for the bedroom.

I love David's art and as you can see we've built up quite a collection on the fridge and cupboard.  Due to the lack of cupboards in my kitchen though I've now started to put his art on the back wall. it's going to be his little gallery.  When he's older and ends up going to school I'll have to get a box to take the oldest ones down and rotate them.  I do love walking into my kitchen and seeing this though, never fails to put a smile on my face.

I have 2 amazing views from my kitchen.  One being this pretty quote I got from Amazon cost me only £1! Great value for money I think and it's great to look at when I'm feeling a bit down.  The best view of all though is of course seeing my son play in the garden.  He was on the trampoline when I took this picture, we brought this for his 2nd birthday and I don't regret it at all.  He loves it and has got so good and jumping.  He does have quite the obsession though to bring toys onto it though.  Also electric shocks are painful!  It's rare we leave him by himself whilst he's on it but we've learnt to trust each other.....also I run out if he gets to close to the edge.

That's it for my kitchen tales.  I was lucky to receive the Platinum fairy dishwasher tablets.  Not like a silly bugger I presumed it was the washing up liquid as I don't have a dishwasher.  BUT fear not I did give them to my partners mum as she does.  She told me about how good they are and that is actually already uses them.  It didn't surprise me as I use the same but washing up liquid.  I tried going back to the average normal washing up liquid and I just couldn't do it!  Seriously if you haven't tried it you really should!  Your missing out big time!

Bye for now and fingers crossed my 3foot festival blog is up on time!  I will also be doing a vlog so make sure you don't miss out on that!  If you didn't know I was on You tube you can find me over here
