sorry not that clear but top shelf is black (one and a half piles) and grey, middle shelf is white - hope you are impressed there is a bit of colour there too, bottom shelf - don't get shocked by the polka dots (that is a nighty and wont be seen during the day - lucky michael!!!). perhaps i did exaggerate on the tidiness point it does not look as neat as i thought.
still experimenting with the new camera so the pictures are not that sharp. below is the kitchen as it is today:-
the before picture to save you scrolling back to the "simplicity" post:-
the tin collection:-
the snobby tin collection (bet you all have bought either the biscuits, tea bags or a single carrier bag from harrods, but have you got the fortum & mason's biscuit tin?)
on the subject of things british it is my brother david's birthday today (he is half-british but more south african than me). david is 36 today (there you go nic - if you are still a follower - he has asked me very nicely to please stop using the em, bb and bs in my posts - apparently it is fine if the entire post is anonymous but it is a bit irritating to new readers (and to him). he always gives constructive criticism so point taken). it was 6 years ago on this very day that my mom (the eccentric one), dalene (the bestest one) and i flew into london for david's 30th birthday. it was a wonderful 2 weeks with the family. nicky deacon joined me once dalene left and we had another 2 crazy weeks - time in london with dave and gareth, a week with matthew in bristol and a very memorable paddy wagon tour to ireland.
i think you may enjoy this little clip as well. sushi in soho, london exactly 6 years ago today - after very fancy cocktails we met up with some of david's friends for sushi. below you will see me taking on one of his mates in a wasabi challenge.
