Dear Lola,

“I ‘ll meet you in the kitchen Lola-girl!”, I announce all of the sudden as we casually lie in lounge room, and no sooner are you on your feet and scampering down the hallway, past your bedroom, through the sitting room & into the kitchen. As I leisurely take the alternate route through the sun room, I turn to find you already there holding your belly & laughing so hard that you’re almost horizontal on the ground.

Yes you beat me there, and yes you can have some milk, or yoghurt or strawberries or whatever else it is you would like. You’re just too cute to say no to anyhow. I make myself a strong coffee.

Our kitchen can be described very simply. It’s small in size, but has a BIG view. I have actually & honestly fallen in love with this space. I can make a coffee or fix you breakfast in record time, as my arms need only reach out length ways for me to get to anything. 
The cupboards are at my level, our pantry food fits nice & neatly into two cupboards, the drawers are lined with awesome vintage contact, the daisies on the splash back make me smile, and there is minimal bench space making it easy to keep tidy. But best of all by far is that I can watch you frolicking in the yard through the windows while I make myself that coffee I was talking about.

There is talk of altering a few things, maybe even knocking out a wall to create more space, but I like it just the way it is for now. Although, I do have my eye on some black and white check flooring, which may just eventuate in the short term thanks to the small floor space that won’t break the budget to change! See everyone wins with this lovely little kitchen.  

Your mama x
