Ta da! I am falling in love with the curly funky handles Ross (my bmf and kitchen designer) insisted upon, and see how the sun comes through what is a little narrow vertical window to the hall. The room is quite dark otherwise, having such a panoramic view of a retaining wall ;-)
See my lovely retaining wall out the window? It's really kind of funky (AlohaAroha loves it too) as there are all these crannies to plant herbs and flowers, as indeed the previous owner had begun to do.The only glitch in a very smoothly run project is that this afternoon while drilling a hole to attach a cupboard, the builder appears to have killed all of our downstairs lights. *sigh* Still, we don't really neeeed them and it's just a little thing really. Unless they have to take the whole kitchen out to get at the wall to fix it of course....ARGH!

Well, yesterday we emptied everything out of our kitchen and today, most of what was left was pulled out:
The world's stoopidest kitchen, no storage space, ghastly colours, and thank your lucky stars we had already pulled up the heeedious vinyl! This was the only other storage in there, a cupboard.
Bye Bye silly cupboard!
