I feel so proud of Ollie right now, because he made this kitchen, pretty much on his own, from scratch. On Christmas eve it was finally finished, and I can honestly say it’s the best Christmas present I’ve ever had. The fact that he created this himself, and worked every weekend for well over a year, makes it so special.
You guys probably don’t know, but we bought our house as a renovation project, and there’s not an inch of space in it that’s not been knocked down or knocked back to brick and been totally transformed by Ollie. When we bought the house, it had no central heating, and he put it in himself (with advice from our friend Mark). He knocked down the stairs and turned them around to create a bathroom in a place that was just a space with no floor. He turned the space under the stairs into another toilet. The builders said it couldn’t be done, but he proved them wrong. The home that he’s made for us is truly amazing, and although it’s not quite finished yet, it’s like a dream come true for me.
My new kitchen has under floor heating, a sound system to die for (we like having parties here!), two ovens and a microwave oven, because I love cooking, and everything is integrated. That includes the bins, dishwasher and washing machine. Oscar even has a new fancy pants cat flap that locks and opens at a certain time (happy days – he no longer wakes me up in the mornings), and it tells us if he’s in or not! See the picture of the cat in the house? Yep – Oskie is in right now.
