 I am having a slow weekend. I have been feeling really run down lately from lack of sleep.... looking after a toddler is really hard work!!!

However, along with the whirlwind, now Alex is a little bit older there are also periods where he can entertain himself for longer than before and I am enjoying more of those important moments where I am able to reflect and daydream.... and spend time in the kitchen cooking yummy healthy food from scratch...

... with this extra time in the kitchen I am also re-rembering and noticing all the repairs and alterations I had wanted to make before Alex came along. The cupboards are tired and the floor is in need of a desperate re-do, but with our post baby budget and lack of time, all these things are not going to get done for ages....

...My daydream of a beautiful hand built kitchen with hand painted tiles may happen one day, but for now I am learning to accept the kitchen as it is for it contains all the things that actually matter..... fresh herbs and vegetables, wooden spoons, jars for my spices, and a growing collection of handmade crockery... these are the things that really matter ..... These are the items that help me prepare the food to nourish my growing family...

You are right, fresh herbs, spices and pretty jars - they make a kitchen look and feel like the hub of the home.. the best rooms also are the ones that evolve slowly and grow with the family like yours - a real working kitchen, I like the pictures on this post probably because they are just that, something that has evolved and is full of things that look as though they actually get used. The kitchen I sort of envy belongs to a friend who is very messy and not at all interested in home styling, yet it holds the invisible essence of 'home' and is the place everyone gravitates to - her warm range cooker, pretty, mismatched crockery and fridge always laden with good food is all that is needed! oh and a few cats, window crammed with growing herbs and plentious bottles of wine and her one extravagance - the very best crystal glasses!
