Kitchen photos and Wolfy

I fell asleep on the couch last night, I was so tired. No time to blog, to chat, to do anything, I just collapsed on the couch and sweet Morpheus took me in his arms before I knew it... I promise on Sunday I'll come and say hi to all my blogging friends. Tomorrow is the last day of the Sale, FINALLY! Life will be back to normal!!

So here are a couple of pics of my pride and joy. The colour is silver-grey and most of my cutlery and kitchen accesories have a silver-matt look.
Yes, I'm into silver!

I took this first picture in two parts, top and bottom. Then a fantastic Software program called Panorama Maker stitched the photos together!
I love clever programs like that!

Here is the left side of the kitchen. The leak was underneath the sink & dishwasher. And you can see on my windowseal my UK street signs and a little bit of greek colour too! It's not a big kitchen, but for me it's like a little jewel and I adore cooking in there!

My "hilly floor"...
You can't really see how hilly it is, but you can see the gaps between the pieces, caused by the flood...

Enough with the flood! I'm ecstatic as I'm watching Mozart 250 on BBC 4 as I write this. This year is the 250th anniversary of Mozart's birth and there are huge events around the world, but the epicentre of all is Austria and esp. Salzburg.
'24 hours Mozart' is a satellite link up of live broadcasts from Europe, Japan and China, concert recordings, documentaries, music features, short programmes, clips and more from Vienna. It's 24 hours of Mozart's music in celebration of the 250th anniversay of Mozart's birth.Image Hosted by
BBC FOUR will be broadcasting highlights from the 24 hours
Tonight I am recording a live six hour program full of concerts and celebrations for Mozart! I'll watch it on Sunday non-stop and couldn't be more happy. Mozart is my favourite classic composer and my favourite movie of all time is Amadeus
so I'm thrilled. My sister and I are planning something for August, maybe go to Musical Salzburg, that would be awesome.
Today (27th) is Wolfy's actual birthday!

Dear Marietta

Is your kitchen stainless steel? It's beautiful!
I know you live in London & I'm wondering what the view out your window is...
You know how I've always wanted to visit that city.

I love smart programs - I'm learning just now how to use my computer to its greater extent!

I thought there was something up with Mozart today - check Google.

Take care.

Word verification - cushiro
I translate that into take care of me.

We just watched Amadeus last night in remembrance of him! He's one of my favourites too.

I love your kitchen - and I totally love all the silver!! It looks so modern and classy! :)

Hello love!

I adore your kitchen! Your pride & joy is lovely! You're right, I can't really tell about the floor, maybe it's not as bad from every angle? Love mozart, especially the movie! I remember watching it in middle school, & wanting to be him! I hope all is well:) Talk to you soon:)

What a awesome looking kitchen, excellent job. I really should spend more time in the kitchen, I used to love making Foccacia bread, and experimenting with different pastas. I used to have a pizza stone and would make gourmet pizza's after work (when I was a bachelor)... Maybe when my back gets better I'll get back to it.

Hope you are well.
