... a little light poetry ...


My kitchen is small, so small, so very small.

However, it is MY kitchen and I love it.

The windows face south and the light pours in.

Even on the greyest of days.

That's some magical light there in that small kitchen of yours, Alice.

Of course, I would expect nothing less than magic, after seeing the fudge created within those four walls.

Clever photo!

Kitchen magic - wonderful photo. And I can't believe your kitchen is teeny when you have so many amazing dishes.

How I'd love to have a kitchen window! Our kitchen is on the windowless side of our apartment. My mum just had a window cut through the wall over her kitchen sink and it makes such a difference...

And I can't believe your kitchen is smaller than ours (especially considering all the wonderful things you make in it)!

I wish I could love my small kitchen. Perhaps I should try harder. Especially as it lets in all the north sun (we're backward and upside down here remember).

A beautiful photograph and how lovely to have a light kitchen. Mine is very dark.

Did you drink the light from your tea cup..............?! What a gorgeous image, and I love the idea of an alterntive light beverage, and a beverage dancing in your cup...................... Magical!

Oh that sounds fun!

Ooh that is so lovely.

The first flat that Mr Soup and I rented together had a kitchen that was about four feet by three feet. I adored it. It was the best utilised space I've ever seen; it even fitted a tiny half size ironing board that folded out of the wall. The rest of the flat was like that too - nooks and crannies, built in everythings, bookshelves, coathooks, and even a little two way cupboard by the front door for the milkman to put the milk in, rather than leave it on the mat to get pinched/spoilt in the heat/pecked at by mapgpies.

We later found out that the block of six flats were designed by a famous architect.

Suse said...

Sorry. Block of six flats WAS designed etc etc.

Grammar pedant.
