Kitchen progress

The kitchen has been up in the air for the last little while. Since New Year David has bene fitting in new base cupboards and the last couple of weeks he has been mastering the art of cutting oak. Now all the worktops are cut and first two coats of oil are on. One more coat and then we can fix them on the base units and get the gas man to connect the cooker. The hob has been out of action since Friday last week so we've been just eating food that you can make just with oven so I'm looking forwards to having the hob back :)

But it is looking very good, then it's just the case of painting all the cupboard doors and tiling and then it's finally done!

New year

Time has flown and I've managed to go through the whole of January without writing a one single blog...terrible! Well, where shall I start?

We've had snow. Lots of snow. Twice. Henrik loves it. Last weekend the weather forecast was for few odd snowflakes but much to our delight we had 12cm/4in of snow when we woke up on Saturday morning. 'Big snow' was Henrik's comment. So we phoned up the local outdoor shop the moment they opened and reserved a toboggan and went and picked it up an hour later (by which time he had sold all the 57 toboggans he had in store and said that he could have sold antoher 20). We spent a jolly morning toboggan and larking around in the snow with our brand new bright green toboggan.

Big is definitely the in word with our young sir. On Friday night we went to ikea to pick up some legs for a kitchen base cabinet/carcass, it was a clear night with a full moon so the commentry from the back seat was 'big moon' 'tahti' (star) 'big, big moon' 'tahti' for most of the drive there. He is into making planes and rockets out of stick-a-bricks at the moment and this mornings creation was a 'big, big, geen (green) rocket'.

Another cute thing Henrik says at the moment is 'jingle bang' - chitty chitty bang bang!!!

Anyway, this is a start for a new year, will be back soon. Most likely with some more cute words by Henrik...
