kitchen worktops

Posted: 29/11/2014 at 18:40

Our kitchen top is black granite and I loath it! Nightmare to keep clean and shows every smudge or drop of water. The house was designed by two brothers and it is very 'male' in its design I feel. I'd go for granite again but only if it was in a soft colour. John Lewis have some lovely toffee coloured worktops and a really nice pinky one - pink sounds awful and doesn't do it justice but it really is lovely.

Never heard of it me duck!  (what's the West Midlands version of 'me duck'?). Love it though! I'll be throwing it in to conversation at work (down south, where phrases are few and far between in the West End....other than the odd 'sweetie darling').

GWRS your day ahead sounds lovely. I'm just getting ready to jump on the 7am train to work....booooo. No allotments or fires from my desk....and lunch will be an overpriced sarnie and a Luke warm 'paper' cup of tea (we aren't allowed kettles or ceramics because of health and safety!! Yep, we can't be trusted with either apparently!!).

Not as chilly as I'd thought here today though....from the outside looking in! Bet it's cold when I open that front door (in a health and safety compliant manner of course!)!

I loved York gate too. Really like the idea of all those gardens in one place. Does anyone know if members of the public can visit it?

John Innes Compost

Does John Innes compost really make a big difference in people's experience? I tend to look at the price, and go for a cheaper option like Arthur j bowers or murphys.

Oh dear! Doesn't anyone like a bit of cold weather? What about the romance of frosty mornings, pretty patterns on cobwebs, gentle crunch under foot, seeing your breath, getting warmed up by a bit if garden work, hot tea outside.....then coming in to beef stew and dumplings?!!

pansyface - slippers for christmas?

Just nipped outside to take some rubbish to the bin. By heck, it's chilly!  Rushed to close the cold frame lids.  I reckon old Jack Frost is on his way tonight. I welcome him. I like seasons to be 'seasons' and all this mild weather in mid November puts so much off kilter for me..... not sure I'll be so welcoming in the morning though when it's time to get out of a warm bed! ??????????

It's so refreshing to see a woman like Christine who is very 'real' and so dedicated and passionate. Not a stick thin, 20-something, makeup laden, product of the media. If only there were more like her on the telly box. Christine is a refreshing joy.
