A new kitchen diner // Room tour

A kitchen diner tour

We moved house back in July last year and we knew that one of the first things we wanted to do was knock down the wall between the kitchen and dining room and have a new kitchen diner. Luckily we managed to get the house for under the asking price and so that left us with enough money to get the work done fairly quickly. Read more

Hisense Fridge Freezer review // My American-style fridge freezer of dreams

At our old house we had separate under counter fridge and freezer and I hated them. They were too small, I had to bend down to get anything out, and once Toby worked out how to open the door I had to always be on my guard for him helping himself!

When we moved I knew I wanted to get an American-style fridge freezer but I had some very specific requirements. Our kitchen isn’t enormous so although I wanted big it still needed to fit somewhere. Most of the fridge freezers I looked at had the fridge on one side and the freezer on the other, but I wanted one with the fridge on top. And lastly I didn’t want one that needed to be plumbed in for a water cooler.

Enter the Hisense FMN432A20C Fridge Freezer which we got from ao.com – it ticked all the boxes and it wasn’t out of our price range.

We’ve been living with the Hisense fridge freezer for getting on for a year yet so I thought I’d film a little video review so you can see why I love it so much…

Do you have an American-style fridge freezer or do you prefer smaller appliances? I’d love to hear what your dream kitchen appliance would be too. Oh, and if you’d like to see a full tour of the rest of our kitchen you can find it here.

Me & Mine // A Family Portrait (January 2017)

I’m not going to write a very long post this month as I don’t really have much to say! Christmas and the New Year seems ages ago now, and yet January has absolutely flown by. We haven’t been doing anything very exciting – we’ve managed a few family trips to the park and a day up in Cumbria visiting the in-laws but that’s about it. Remarkably though, apart from Gabe having a snotty nose for the whole month, none of us has been ill either!

We did go out a couple of weekends ago with the intention of a walk in the woods and a chance to take this month’s Me & Mine photos… But we were thwarted by a grumpy Toby, the sun going in and it getting freezing cold, and a path that turned far too muddy for the buggy to cope with.

So instead we took these pictures in our kitchen. Read more
