I've just ordered a new kitchen and booked the builder for while we're in South Africa. All paid for out of my $ earnings over the past couple of years – I turned the $ into £ a couple of months back when the rate hit 1.36, a bargain as a large proportion of them were earned at about 2.00!

We've ordered these units – direct from the manufacturer, Crosby Kitchens, where my dad worked back in the 1970s (that job being the reason we moved to Sheffield) and where his best mate still works, so we got a pretty good deal...


We've run a little mad on the oven, but I'm rather excited about it. I've just ordered one of these Rangemaster beauties from John Lewis... love the right-hand oven which is tall and thin and has four shelves, including a plate-warming rack!


Pretty much all of the rest of the electrical stuff is remaining – it's almost all less than two years old as the decade-plus old stuff has been conking out. And finally I'll get the tumble dryer out of the spare bedroom where it currently resides.

It's unlikely to be completely finished by the time we get back from Cape Town, but the worst of the building work – plastering, floor tiles etc etc – should be done.

Hurrah!
