So I am kind of in love with my kitchen at the moment.. Today we went to IKEA and bought some shelving units we have had our eyes on for a while. We made it up beside the Monolith. (our ridiculously huge fridge), and I have got to say.. it looks really cool! like industrial sheek. sort of.. you know, the type of kitchen you see chefs cooking in. "I am le professeeonal chef, I do not need to ave le cubbards....see? all my pot an pans on le shelves..Magnifique!!"
I don't know why the chef is french.. but you get my point.
Here is a pic, we haven't finished filling the shelves yet but you get the drift.
Anyway, it's freed up a huge amount of space in our tiny kitchen so I am lurving it.
On Saturday we had a family outing to a really nice place called Ewen Maddock Dam. We had bought myself a new (second hand) bike so we thought we try it out on some bike trails.
Let me first explain that I have not ridden a bike for thirteen years. Thirteen years ago I was younger and single and child free, AND I had two good working eyes. Now I am ooooooold and fragile and have a child and husband and I am half blind and I have way too much to live for....
OK so maybe a little dramatic but I have only gone for a little peddle around our unit block. I don't think I was ready for full on trail blazing just yet. I wanted nice smooth, straight, cement paths. You know.. baby steps. But no. What do we do..?
Go bloody trail blazing through the bloody bush. Yeah it was pretty and ferny and ooo..what a cool mushroom...and.. but it was also windy and hilly and slushy and terrifying!.
But I made it our of there alive. I did not crash into a tree, fall into a bush or plunge into the muddy dam waters.
And it WAS a great day. Peaceful, cool, fun.
Here are some pics.
