The work top is an essential part of any kitchen.
My new kitchen work top is black with sexy coloured glittery bits in it. I can have Christmas all year round in my new kitchen especially when the pretty blue lights under the units and near the floor are on.
I have had two phone calls and three letters reminding me that my new kitchen is being delivered next week, to blow up the blue balloon and tie to my gate (the party will be later) and make sure there is a space 2m x 3m to store the stuff in until my builder is ready for it.
We are SO ready for the new kitchen.
We know that we will be eating takeaway off paper plates for a couple of weeks and that personal hygiene and clean clothes may fall by the wayside when the water is off.
We have broken the news to Gap Boy that he may find himself separated from the PC when the power is off – Minecraft battles may have to wait.
Uni Boy and Bezzie Mate are staying away until the new kitchen has been installed.
Scoobs may spend the next couple of weeks wuffing and whining at the strange men who will be demolishing part of the house and rebuilding it again (I hope).
This afternoon I got a call from a six year old (well maybe ten – okay then a sixteen year old ) work experience girl who had issues with her fs and ths.
There ‘as bin a nerror at Haitch Q apparently. My kitchen has been ordered – bu’ sum1 forgot tuh order yer worktop. Sumfing muzt ‘ave gonn wrong sumwheh – dunno wot ‘ appened, or oo didit but it woz sum1 ‘ere – not sum1 at the shop.
Enough of the junior jargon – they are going to supply us with a temporary work top until my sexy work top arrives, then my builder will be coming back to take out the temporary one and fit the new one.
At no cost to us.
Well, that’s a relief then!
Today we have been mostly clearing out the Krappy Kitchen.
Hub and I are dirty and dusty, and now I am disheartened too.
GB has thudded down from his bedroom every now and then to bark at the dog (who is wuffing a lot because he feels insecure), snarl at me and Hub and tell us what a lousy job we are doing.
Go on then GB – set us a good example to follow – thought not.
His one contribution to Operation Chuck It Out so far has been to take his clothes mountain out of the bathroom and dump it on his bed so that we could swap over some bookcases and books (our upstairs bathroom is a very dusty but literary place).
I really should not have chosen basic black to wear when sorting out dusty but much-loved books.
On the plus side, I have found many favourites that I thought I’d lost – and have now purchased and installed on one of my Kindles – I can’t throw books away though and the charidee box looks rather sparse.
I was given a medicinal sherry to cheer me up after the phone call – I had to hand the charmless teen over to Hub before I said something extremely rude to her.
Spit that gum out! Spit it out NOW!
It wasn’t so much the news that she was imparting; it was the lethargic ‘so what’ manner with which she delivered it.
I could almost see her examining her cuticles with disinterest as she dropped the bombshell on me. I wonder if they drew lots in the office as to which of them should break the news of their incompetence to Mrs Angry?
Who the hell orders a kitchen and forgets to order the work top?
Easter is over but I am still one Hot, Cross Bunny.
Fingers crossed that I have my kitchen for Christmas – only eight months to go.
