RE ARRANGING MY WHITE KITCHEN..AGAIN!!
























































Hello ladies...
Well another magnificent day in Melbourne with the temp a very comfy 27 degrees...


How awesome is that for mid/late autumn?? in Melbourne??...

Anyway...after the Pink Poodle's tea party the other week..(previous blog).....I kind of had to change the table..??
CANNOT stay PINK for too long with a house of MEN!!
(although it did stay like this for Christians 21 st on sunday when he had his mates over!! they were watching the F1 Grand Prix...so didnt mind the PINK table...we hope???))).....
Anyway once I start...OH WELL... I might as well give the kitchen a GOOD GOOD clean.
(I cannot believe how quickly it all becomes yucky?? greasy??...OR is it just MY kitchen??)..

SOO i have been ALL day...cleaning...changing things around...

bread Bin looks pretty clean!!! just gotten rid of SOOOOO many CRUMBS!

STILL NOT finished YET as .....
OVEN TO CLEAN...YUKKY!!!! YUKKY!!!
ALL the white emperite cabinets have to be cleaned...

I have made the table a LITTLE FOODIE table for this week..

What with my FAV FRUIT OF ALL TIME NOW IN SEASON!!!
MANDARINS!!!
Mr Christian's APPLES ...bananas...
& my cherry tomatoes which I just HAVE to munch on every time I walk past...
I have place MOST of the PINK thingeys from the tea party onto the bottom shelf of my hutch..(tooo lazy to carry them elsewhere)...BUT a change is as good as a holiday..??
& lastly...my hubby always hates that the cup/saucers etc when he wants a cup of tea..are elsewhere in the kitchen..
OOHH!! poor baby has to walk around a bench to get them...!!

OKAY..I have put his teaspoons...cup/saucers/plates RIGHT next to the kettle so HE DOESN'T have to move an inch!!
I also put my "wooden" kitchen goodies together in a theme!!
& OOHHH!! sorry forgot to say...HOW ORGANISED DOES MY PANTRY LOOK??
SOO quick post...back to finish the BIG KITCHEN CLEAN!!

PPS...sorry again photos are all out of sequence...every time i try to change them the computer shuts down..
I think I may have to listen to MR BYRON..computer expert..who WANTS me to get an APPLE computer etc...(maybe cos he works part time at their store??)...BUT he promises me I could have a great web site with my business name..
OOHH!! I am a scaredy cat re NEW technology...
that may be another blog in itself..
anyway...hope you enjoy my silly little blog..
xx andrea

I do my pantry each school Holidays I missed this last time though....Too busy out at Tea Parties:)
But WHOA! It ain't neat like yours!
I have no room in this Little kitchne! Hard to keep it streamlined!
I love when the fruit basket is full!

Hi Andrea, well I am totally convinced that you are a neat freak! I think you could be related to my mother in law as no matter where you look, which draw you open, everything is in place. Don't get me wrong, I admire you for that. I fixed my pantry just the other day but still not as neat as yours! Everything looks so lovely in your home! bye the way a very happy belated birthday to Christian,.. they grow up too quick. take care, maryann

Hey thats the beauty of owning your own house, you can rearrange whenever you like. And it is like a little holiday I think. Thats how I feel when I rearrange things around my place.
