Job Done well almost

So after 4 weeks of upheaval, and a mess that has yet been unprecedented, my tiny weenie cooking space is almost complete, Just need to put my spice rack up above the sink, a self above the cooker, and a couple of shelves on the back wall for my lovely light yellow and black dinner set. and one more shelf for my Russian tea set.

I'm reasonably happy with the result, but I'm still saving my pennies to have a real granite work surface, and to re-install my white butler sink.

I'm so glad I didn't let my Boyfriend talk me out of removing my re-claimed quarry tiles.

My most important creation

So this week my lovely 17 and 3 quarter old son is playing living on his own with his mates,

He'll be staying at his friends house for the next 10 days, without adult supervision, as his friends mother is away in Cuba.
One of the most important creations in my life is my son, I've dedicated every minute of his 17.3/4 years to him. So whilst I'm excited for him to have this free space, I'm nervous in that I hope what he does with this free space will be all in the positive and not in the negative.

Although I suspect a little drinking will be part of his free space,

However, this all means that after he's spent 10 days away from me, and living it large, when he returns I will undoubtedly be dealing with a more grown up version of what left the house this weekend.
So a little reminiscence kind of wafted over me this morning.
