Tonight I reached a new “low” in domestic bliss. I tweeted a photo of our new pantry cupboard.

Getting this pantry was an epic weekend event, requiring borrowing a car, lugging it up the stairs and putting it together. Then – because apparently door hinges are optional when buying DIY cupboards from Bunnings – we walked a 3km round trip to our local Bunnings to get the requisite hinges.

But tonight I finally got to fill it up and I was grinning like a Cheshire cat the entire time (is this what my life has come to?) and I shared my excitement with Sarah by tweeting her a photo of my new cupboard in all it’s never-to-be-this-tidy-again glory.

Just as exciting for me, though, is that our breakfast bench has been re-instated.

For too long, this little part of our (original) pantry cupboard has been chockas full of other stuff that we couldn’t find a home for. But not any more! And even though it looks daggy, I love that toaster cover because I made the bloody thing myself!

I feel like a bit of a tosspot blogging a photo of a small cupboard in my kitchen, but I’m feeling houseproud and I don’t feel that very often, so I’m basking in it and bloody well enjoying it :)

What cereal should I get for the empty tupperware container there next to the Weet Bix? I’m thinking Coco Pops or Corn Flakes…

  4. Never be embarrassed about revealing in the joy of new home furniture nor a tidy pantry. Especially a tidy pantry, cause that needs to be celebrated.
    My vote is most definitely for Coco Pops or as they are known here in Germany, Cocoa Krispies.

  5. Thanks @riayn, you’re dead right you know :)

    So 3 votes for Coco Pops and a vote for All Bran (Kell, wtf is Frostie Flakes? Is that some Victorian cereal??)

  6. Muesli… that’s what I have in my tupps container!
    Very snazzy little cupboard, nothing wrong with being houseproud and sharing it for the world to see. I can’t believe you had to walk to your local Bunnings for hinges! What a shocker! xo

    (they probably don’t taste as good as I remember cause I only ever had them at Christmas when MOTY would buy Golden Child and I one of those assorted mini boxes of cereal things… we would fight over the Frosties)
