A small change

Small changes can be inexpensive usually, and these can also give a little bit of oomph to a boring stock standard kitchen.

I'm talking handles here folks..

Our old handles on our pantry came very loose one day, and try as we might we couldn't tighten them back into place. Threaded they were.

Perhaps it was a hint to look for something more simple that would suit the kitchen better. Any excuse really :-)

Here's what we started with

boring smooth rounded handles

And we ended up with these

lovely squared handles

so plain so simple, I really like them

Much better now

Very cheap too, $40 for a pack of 25.. free postage.. ebay. It couldn't have been easier really.

These little beauties, although not everyones cup of tea, suit the kitchen better and are a good replacement for now.

We have plans to redo the kitchen in a couple of years, however this involves knocking down a wall to enlarge the space and integrate the laundry into it.  Plus I would love an island bench too.  Oh well all good things...

Our little munchkin!

I've been away for so long, but I think I have found a way to blog easier and faster from my iPad. Yah!

It's still in the testing phase at this stage, and of course I'll blog all about it once it looks like its a success.

Here's our gorgeous girl, the youngest one anyway. And my oh my have the months passed in a blur. This time last year she was still classed as a newborn, ek!

In this pic she is all of 13 months old...
and we all love her sweet face

As this is somewhat of a test post, I won't natter on and on too much

I will say though that the last couple of months have been quite interesting for us, all due to a netball injury that proved more serious than I thought. So after the hurdle of knee surgery 4 weeks ago, and ongoing physio, I feel almost back to normal. Well almost... but strong enough to tackle this blogging thing once again.

And all the learning that goes with it

Cheerio for now!
