Dear Lynn
Oh no your beautiful kitchen :-(
What a horrid experience for you - I can't imagine.
But your last few days put most people's minor moans and groans into perspective (including my own of course!).
I'm thinking of you and hoping that normality can resume very, very soon.
Take care,

Oh! How awful! I feel for you with that going on.
I hope you can sort it on the insurance and that you haven't got to try and replace anything that is, well, irreplaceble, like your vintage lovlies.

Take care, thinking of you and hoping it is soon gone awy!

Annie said...

Oh my gosh. I drop off the map for a bit and return to THIS. How terrible for you. I just read your most current post as well and see that things are looking up. Nevertheless, in a perfect world, no one needs this.

vicki said...

Gasp!! I have had to take a deep breathe! I cannot imagine-- but I know you will turn this into a creative opportunity- and be all the better for it . Just think how you will love getting a new kitchen! I am excited for you just thinking about it!

I do hate that this has happened- unplanned "surprises" can be so unsettling. By now I am sure you have great plans underway for a beautiful new place to be happy!

( I had no idea- dare I say(with all love and affection!) - the dump word!!). Bless your sweet sweet heart!
