An Chistin - The Kitchen

To start an ongoing series of pictures of the inside of the house, I decided to start with the kitchen. There are several reasons for this. 1) This is where I spend the bulk of my time at home 2) It's probably my favorite room in the house b/c it's so bright and airy 3) It's the one room in the house tidy enough to photograph. :o)

The kitchen section of the house was added on in the 50's, I think he said. I love how bright it is and just really welcoming. If you look just past the fridge, you can see the top of a doorframe. That door, if you stand directly in it, you can see into the downstairs bathroom. Go through the door and to the right and you're in the playroom.
This pic was taken standing in the back doorway. The sink is just out of sight on the right. The living room is just to the left.

Now you can see our back door. This is the main door we use. They only time we've used our actual front door was go to out and take pictures. :o) You can see the washing machine there, and you can see how we've been diligently studying, as our books are still on the table. :o)

The view from our kitchen sink. The main road runs right in front of that yellow building there. That's the pub. If you look closely, you can see a two-story brick building just beyond the pub. That's one of the schools there, that is used for a lot of adult education and activities classes (knitting, singing, etc)

Here's the coolest bathroom ever! LOL It's an old style pull chain flush. And, yes, that is the sink just over/behind the toilet.

This is standing by the washing machine, looking into the living room. You can also see Seth's 3rd baby - the lovely TV, complete with the American Football video game on. :o) Hannah was having fun helping me with the pictures. If you look just barely past Hannah and the doorframe, you can see how thick the walls are.
So, there it is. Our lovely little kitchen. I have no idea when the next room will be ready, but one day we'll get it done. :O)

Love the toilet sink - it's like using an airplane bathroom. :)

chain pull toilets are the best.
