Update on kitchen

Well, all the units are in place, the cooker is in and working and the tiles and wallpaper on the walls. The next job for the weekend is the glossing of doors and skirting boards.  It is looking good.

James Martin Yorkshire puds

Tried out James Martin's Yorkshire pudding method (even though mine were good before) This is the result. Just hope that the work the same on my new oven.

The new tiles and wallpaper were  done so we could get the cooker in, the old one was breaking down bit by bit so there was a sense of urgency about this redecoration. Only the rest of the wallpapering to do, and more tiling between the units. No doubt there will be another project when this is finished!

Cooking on (electric)

New cooker in place and has been used twice! Don't want to rush things (or dirty the job)
