Well, Kitchen hunting was amazing.....we really did set out with the hope of simply adding to what we already have....but sadly (yeah I am really trying to look sad here) the colour we have now (you remember, the one I really didn't like- turns out it's called Irish Linen) has been (drum roll please...) DISCONTINUED. Obviously that means as much as I would like to, I simply can't keep it!!! (he he he)....so plan b. is to give our current kitchen a facelift and add onto it. PERFECT. I get what will essentially look like a new kitchen, (YES, WITH A DISHWASHER) for a cheaper price than a new kitchen. We are going out today to select colours, benchtops etc so that one company can give us a quote...they came and measured the other day. We are still waiting on another company to contact us with a figure....the first place we got a quote from didn't want to use what was here and said it would be cheaper to pull it out and start again...their quote came in at just over $6k (we are not replacing any of our appliances)....so I am interested to see what this mob today say. Wish me luck!
