Hello everyone :) We had a very special birthday yesterday my Dad was 88 years young the family celebrated with a meal out. He was so happy to see so many of us together. My Dad is one of those characters  that almost everyone in the town knows lol. He still walks  to the shops in the town most days. He is hardly ever sick he puts my health to shame :D  He has always been there for us kids his grandchildren and great grandchildren. I am very lucky and grateful to still have this wonderful man in my life.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAD we all love you.
I have been trying to finish my kitchen. I found it hard to get it like I had in my head lol. First I found it difficult to find top cupboards I really wanted this kitchen to have them. I did find one but after I bought it it was to tall and didnt leave enough space between it and the worktops also because the back wall has sticky back paper on it was difficult to stick the cupboard to it "sigh". Just when I was going to give up ( I don't feel brave enough to make my own) and put shelves up If I could get them to stick I found a great kitchen. It has top and bottom cupboards combined yay and this is the start of my kitchen.


Here is the kitchen unit. I have filled the top cupboards.

Here it is in the kitchen. I still have to put something in the oven :))



 It comes with the sink unit also and fits into the corner perfect. I hope to have that in soon. I hope you like how my kitchen is looking. I am very happy with it. I still have more to do to this kitchen and I hope I can finish it soon as I need to think about Christmas phew it seems to get here faster and faster every year lol.
Big warm Hugs to all my Friends and a very warm welcome to my new followers. Have a wonderful week.

I love how the kitchen is coming together. I am glad that you were able to find the pieces. I too have trouble sometimes getting these things to work out. Somehow, they always come along in the end though. Happy Birthday to your dad! He sounds like a great man :-) Have a wonderful week & stay warm.

Happy Birthday to your Dad, best wishes and above all health... sounds like you've spent that special day all together as best as you could... ;O) That kitchen cupboard was a wonderful find - it looks very good and has lots of possibilities... and storage space (which is needed in every kitchen for sure).
