And so I return. I’m not entirely sure how to start this post. I’ve been away for so long, without intending to, really. Every time I thought of this blog, I thought I’d return soon, and so the time simply passed between my fingertips. Quite bit happened in the meanwhile. Importantly, I have a new kitchen to play in! Chosen by us, designed by us – a space of our own. Rather than the kitchen we inherited with the house. We are finally in the position to start shaping our home the way it suits us. And this is what we did: black cupboards down (wood-textured black, wrapped in stainless steel to accentuate the lines of the cupboards), white matte up, with a light grey engineered stone worktop – I love it! Completely functional, and a joy to work in, but not quite done yet. We’re having a glass splashback/backsplash (I can never remember which) instead of tiles on the wall, so we’re waiting for that to be installed. It’s going to be red, deep red. I can’t wait! When it’s all done, I’ll show you.
Other than the pause when the new kitchen was being built, it wasn’t like I didn’t do any cooking. In fact, a friend and I got together and embarked on some exciting culinary explorations. We did a Moroccan, an Sichuan and a Persian feast. All three involved crazy amounts of food, work and fun! I learnt a lot. I’ll write more about them in the future.
You know what, it’s good to be back. I feel my creativity awakening already.
