Welcome to our flat. We are #21, and yes the 1 is slightly larger than the 2.
When you walk in, to the right are the steps upstairs to the bedrooms, and just a step past it is the hall to the kitchen. We’re starting there because it is probably my favorite room in the house and what drew me right in when we looked at it online.
Ooo, it’s so pretty! It’s bright, with big windows on the left and right side that let sunshine and fresh air blow straight through while we’re cooking, eating or hanging out.
To the right.
Pretty blue, green and white dishes displayed in clear cabinets. Under-cabinet lighting, if necessary. A pretty view of the brick-lined streets and sidewalks. Two spouts, and two handles, drinking water and washing water. (I honestly don’t know if the water flowing through them is exactly the same or not, but the water that comes out of the smaller spout has a contained trickle that fills my water bottles just right, so there’s always that…)
To the left, our little dinner nook. Yes, we actually have an eat-in kitchen!! I was amazed by this when we were checking the listing because almost every flat had the dining room table in one half of the living room. So, in my mind, not only does this present us with an eat-in kitchen, but it also presents us with a living room to use AS a living room. I can’t even imagine the damage Hannah would do to the carpet if we ate our meals at a table in the living room. She is such a little food thrower.
Hannah’s sweet new high chair, flowers Chris had waiting for me when we arrived at the flat, Chelsea doing dishes, and the other big bright window overlooking some beautiful flats with the river behind them.
So come visit, and we’ll fix you some tea. I’ll make you try it with milk if you haven’t before, because it’s so much better that way, and Chris always tells me that I make a mean cup of tea. And we can call it a cuppa if we want, but not in front of any locals because that will only reveal just how lame we are. 🙂 But it really is good tea.
More soon, again.
(I think “more soon” is becoming an accidental tagline for me these days. Oh well.)
