Find the fridge…

..and a freezer…and a cooker!

We decided to start the search for all the replacement white-goods for the new kitchen – and just to be awkward, they need to be black!

Still, the whole experience has narrowed down our options. The challenge seems to be getting a fridge or a freezer or a fridge/freezer that's got the capacity we need.

Finally, we drove over to Northampton to the biggest B and Q I think I've ever seen – it was massive! Although we didn't specifically go there to look at kitchens, they had some great designs on show including one in burgundy – it was beautiful – and the other designs have given some ideas for ours. After picking up some more solar lights for the garden, it was then that we realised that we'd both come out without any money – Doh!

We drove home, had a cuppa and then popped back to Tesco's to pick up some stationery.

It's been a productive day – and we didn't spend much money either ('cos we couldn't!).
