It feels as if the house has doubled in size....because I have cleared off a small area of the wooden surface by the sink in the kitchen. Due to this we have effectively doubled the size of our one working area for chopping, putting butter on toast and making pancake mix. Wow!
You need long arms to cope with the new system because the jams and honey pots are perched along the middle bit of the window frame. The compost pan is balanced on top of the green bin. To be honest it is a disaster waiting to happen, but for now I am strangely happy and smile every time I see how orderly it all looks.
Even the small sharp knives got a new container which is wider at the bottom than at the top. The last mug they were in was the other way around, so you can imagine how often I would accidentally knock it plus contents all over the place.
