Our new kitchen has finally been ordered. Hurrah! After months of cooking in a tiny kitchen that bears a remarkable resemblance to Mrs. Brown Rabbit's kitchen (above), it will be nice to at last have enough space to make a real mess. Because that's what kitchens are for, right?
Not for me the pristine chrome and laminate kitchens that fill the home design mags here in Australia. While we sadly couldn't keep the 1960s wooden cabinets (they are just too small and narrow), the new kitchen will still have a real lived-in look to it.
And, like Mrs. Brown Rabbit's kitchen, it will probably still be completely untidy and unsafe (can you spot the 7 safety hazards in this illustration, which comes from a 1960s Tufty Annual?).
