The kitchen

Well the renovations at Baboon HQ have started and what hard work it has been.  Last week is was all delivered (well most of it we are somd doors short.  Apparently that is all part of the trial and tribulation of having a kitchend done and its a necessary part of any successful job.

On Wednesday the kitchen fitter arrived to help us baboons get the kitchen ready.  It was hard work but he was very helpful.

I am not sure how my people felt about it all baboons and kitchen fitters fit kitchens they do not and I repeat do not clean up afterwards, people have to come home from work to do that.  So on Day 1 this is what my people came home to clean up.

Frankly I don't know why they bothered to clean up because on Day 2 they came home to this. (By the way we did manage to heat up pizzas on Day 1 so all was not lost!

Well that gave them something to think about didn't it how do you clean up with no sink?  Washing up wasn't on the cards either so we went for Chinese noodles at the Hong Kong Express on Ryde seafront (highly recommended in the baboon fine dining guide by the way)!

Day 3 was meant to be the last day, but baboons and kitchen fitters always underestimate how long things will take.  Boy was there a lot of cleaning to do after Day 3, but at least some things are in cupboards now and we have a sink.  Had fish and chips but managed breakfast this morning.

So we are hard at work again today.  Here Rhylan and I are planning the day's work schedule.  We would not have been able to do any of this without Rhylan he has been fantastic.  We won't get finished today because we are missing a couple of doors and side panels but we will be able to use the kitchen to cook macaroni cheese today.

More things happening today well there will be more cleaning up, a new washing machine is being delivered and my brothers Yaya and Roko are working on some new wardrobe doors in the bedroom.

So what next I hear you ask?  Well next is painting, we are abandoning the yellow for pale blue after 12 years.  That will be the next couple of week's job.  Rhylan is staying for that.  We can't manage without his enthusiasm and hard work.


  1. WOW - that is going to be a dream kitchen to use pal. I know you cook, so you'll be able to use it too. Pretty nice of dad to get it for you~!

  2. I am sure glad Ryhlan decided to stay and help you.
