She fits so perfectly it's just like she was made especially for the space she is in.
Top left cupboard comfortably holds the day to day crockery and the top right cupboard has all of my glassware in the same place for the first time in years.
Bottom left cupboard holds baking tins and serving dishes. Bottom right roasting pans and baking sheets all easily accessible.
One big drawer is the cutlery drawer and the other is yet to be filled.
The centre drawers hold phone directories and the address book and I have a first aid drawer.
The small drawers hold batteries, keys and other small items that were just crammed into one drawer previously and there are still a couple left to fill.
She's like Mary Poppins' bag.....lol.
There's room for a pretty Christmas display..........
.......and another one......although for me this area would have better with just one central shelf and then my cookery books could have fit in there.
I had great fun deciding where everything would go but boy was I pooped by the time I was done.
Not a very good start to the day today as I fell over Smudge on the landing. Thank gawd the sideboard was there else it could have been very nasty. I have just ended up with a scraped arm. It's sore but when I think I could have ended up smashing my head against the wall......well it doesn't bear thinking about actually.
Ruby's little face when she opened her parcel last night was just awesome......and when she found that the trousers fit her smile could have outdone Blackpool Illuminations.
They are a little long in the leg but I have asked DDIL to wash them before I take them up just in case they shrink. I didn't want to take them up and then find they shrunk and ended up being short.
I got to spend a little time with Marlowe when we dropped Ruby off last night and I got the shock of me life.....she is crawling now. She snuck that one in as she wasn't crawling the last time I saw her the little monkey.
Looks like I will be having some fun when I babysit her tomorrow evening.
Well lots more sorting and tidying to do today.
The present wrapping has gone a bit further down the list and will now be done on Monday. We are just going to put each persons gifts into a black bag for now so that Ruby doesn't see anything while she is here for the weekend.
.......and that is the news from Tea Towel Mansion for today.
Hope you all have a wonderful day.
