kitchens

we're looking at getting a new kitchen. The nice chap in B&Q gave us a rough estimate, based on the bits we said we liked, of £x.

The equally nice man from B&Q came round tonight, measured up, and gave us a quote.

For twice the amount.

yikes. Expensive things, kitchens.

that said, the expensive quote included things like £300 for them removing the tiles between work surface and wall cupboards, and replastering.

Errr, no. I can take tiles off, thankyouverymuch.

oh, forgot to mention. jugglebug turned up on sunday evening, to drop some diabolo books off for young master EB.

EB was totally giddy about the whole thing, and we ended up having an impromptu diabolo session in the (very small) front garden.

jugglebug, he's now read all the books, though not actually *tried* any of the tricks, as yet. :-)
