...in with the new. This post is for anyone who has ever cooked in my kitchen. The 25 year old stove with separate grill, with the knobs so worn no-one except me had any idea what they did, and the 25 year old microwave with the trim that kept falling off and the door that needed a knife to open, and the so-called 'extractor' fan that collected gunk and blew it all back into the kitchen, are gone!!!!
My friend recommended a fantastic kitchen guy, to whom nothing was a problem (except the 25 year old dishwasher that is tiled in, so didn't get replaced) and within half a day, my new appliances were installed, a new deep drawer built under, the new fan installed with a new cupboard over. If I'd known how inexpensive and easy all this would be, I would have done it years ago.
