My tidy kitchen

A little (actually not that little when you think about all the work that goes into really cleaning a kitchen from top to toe but anyway!) task completed! With a trip to my local florist really making my kitchen look pretty today :-)

It's not often I love tidying and cleaning but today I'm feeling pretty happy to have cleared the decks as we've had so many mugs and plates lying around and no dishwasher, so after a couple of lazy days the mess is overwhelming!

Right, I think I'm off to the beach to catch the last of the day's rays! Only 4 days and counting... :-)



  1. A nice tidy kitchen is always a joy isnt´t it? And adding flowers to it really makes it all fresh and beautiful!

  2. Yeah for you!
    I love it when Cpt Valentine and the children go to sport on Saturday mornings.
    It means that I can not only clean the house and tidy little dumping piles of mess but there's enough time to actually sit back and enjoy my efforts.
    I agree that the best icing on the cake is at least one vase of lovely blooms.

  3. Nothing better than a clean and clutter free kitchen! If my kitchen is tidy I feel I can cope more easily with the rest of the house. Love your flowers in the corner too - must put flowers in my kitchen more often. Michelle

  4. I love that little arrangement! And good on you for cleaning your's a big job, but somebody has to do it! Have a great weekend!

  6. Well La De DA!!! My kitchen does not look so pristine this morning... but I suppose it could. Hmmmmm....

  7. I love the feeling of completeness one gets after a job well done and the kitchen sparkling clean.

  8. We don't have a dishwasher either so I often have piles of mugs and plates sitting around as well :)
    Your ranunculas are stunning! I just love them. Hopefully I will have some in the garden soon.

  10. I've been doing some Fall cleaning around here. Small simple changes here and there always help motivate me to do some deep cleaning.
