We had a funny little passage that we could never figure out how to incorporate into the home effectively until a very clever designer friend suggested splitting it and making one half the pantry and the other a store room.
This storeroom now holds all the sports equipment, hobbies (air rifles, sewing, scrapbooking, Ninco and Technic Lego) as well as my overflow school books. It's so great to have this stuff contained instead of spilling out around the home.
Everyone is finding that now the kitchen has been planned and the pantry right next to the cooking area we can use the space much more effectively.
With the Cape winter hitting us hard I am delighted that the laundry is now indoors. I used to have to make mad dashes in the rain across the back courtyard to the laundry.
Even Superman got into the kitchen this morning and made me a yummy omelette. Buy here are some other things that went on in our kitchen...
|Broad bean, potato and carrot curry.|
Yes, broad beans are being harvested.
|Spinach is now being snuck into everything too!|
|Lovely sourdough bread made by eldest son|
|Kefir flapjacks made by youngest|
|Scones made by younger daughter|
|Warm porridge with apples, walnuts and honey|
|Even my Mum made us sago pudding with farm peaches.|
