At last we have a new family kitchen table!
We have been using an outdoor table set for the last two and a half years while we waited for the new house to be built and then for the money to be saved up.
We have looked in numerous shops and eventually bought the very first table we saw over a year ago. It arrived today and an hour later two friends, Monica and Maree were sitting at it having coffee and hot chocolate. The chairs must have been comfortable because 3 hours later we were still sitting there chatting!
