Back home with a new kitchen

We're now well established back on the Ashby Canal at our favourite mooring. I'm not going to tell you where it is as you'll all want to moor up next to us. Then it wouldn't be our favourite mooring any more, would it. What about that sheep syndrome. What's that all about. Why do boaters moor right next to another boat when in the middle of nowhere. Weird behaviour or what. Why don't you all just bugger off.

The kitchen is now finished, more or less (less cupboard doors). The worktop was actually made by me as we wanted to build the whole thing ourselves and not have to buy anything already made. It also took the longest time. Lisa wanted a farmhouse style with a thick work top (not necessarily a thick builder) and we're quite pleased with the result (even Lisa's impressed and she's notoriously difficult to keep happy).

I'm wearing flowers in my hair today in celebration of the release of Aung San Suu Kyi. (fortunately, no pictures)

Good job on the worktop, Pete. What is that light-coloured wood you've used?

The kitchen looks lovely, Well done Pete. Pearl & Ken

It's all pine. I would love to have used ash but price prevented it.

I'll have to sand it down every year but that was factored in with the ease with which it can be disassembled.

Pearl and Ken eh! You sound like a couple of rum 'uns.

Went past you on your secret mooring today but there didn't seem to be anyone about. We promise not to tell anyone where your secret mooring is!!

Damb. And I only took the camouflage nets off for an hour. I note that you were back in the Red Lion again. You're starting to get a reputation around here.
