New starts! A new kitchen!

Have a nice month everyone!
I can't believe time flew so fast that I couldn't even find time to blog.
There are so many things happening around here that I seem not to find time for the blog!
Of course schools started.
This year we have an empty classroom and I temporarily got it to have an English classroom. I am really happy about it. I bought cleaning things and went and cleaned it but haven't decorated it yet because I really don't know if it lasts.


At home our flat is a mess.
Long ago we had decided we wanted a new kitchen fitted and at last we found a handyman we could trust to make everything, plumbing, wires, the units.
From this which lasted 22 years....
 we got through this.....
to arrive to this....
and this...
and finally to this....
While the kitchen was covered with the IKEA safety wrap lots of people really liked it and told me I should keep it blue! We decided to paint one wall blue to keep the mood!
I will blog more about the kitchen in future with details.
So far we have been cleaning (and decluttering yeah!) for about 22 days now and we only managed to do the kitchen. The rest of the house is still a mess. Hopefully we will have been finished by....October?Christmas?

Σαν ανέκδοτο μου ακούγεται το πρώτο μέρος του post. Ποτέ δεν είχα καθηγητή/καθηγήτρια (στο Λύκειο, τουλάχιστο), που να είχε μπει στη διαδικασία να κάνει κάτι περισσότερο από το να εμφανίζεται για μάθημα. Μπράβο. Όσο για το δεύτερο κομμάτι του ποστ, είμαι κι εγώ σε φάση (γενικότερου) ξεκαθαρίσματος και (μίνι) ανακαίνισης, οπότε, συμπάσχω... :-/

Ωωωωωωω! Υπέροχη κουζίνα...φωτεινή και λειτουργική. Λάτρεψα τον ξύλινο πάγκο και τον μπλε τοίχο επίσης! Με γεια Αριάδνη μου να είστε καλά να την χαρείτε και σιγά σιγά θα γίνουν και τα υπόλοιπα!

I didn't realize it was a safety wrap and was wondering why you had repainted the new cabinets!!! ha ha ha!!!!! I do prefer the 'real' colour!!!! Hope you will keep your classroom, now that you have done all the cleaning!!!!! I wish you a happy schoolyear!!!

Redecorating is aways a mess, I just had carpet in my family room ,It only took a day to put in but it took me a lot longer to take the things out and back in.
We will not be going to Greece. Going to Lecce Italy it is across the water . But hope to go on a tour some how .

Δεν υπάρχει καλύτερη αλλαγή από μια καινούρια κουζινίτσια. Εκεί παρεούλα με τις φιλενάδες θα πίνεται καφεδάκι όσο θα αχνίζει το φαγητό. Καλή δύναμη για τη νέα σχολική χρονιά με υγεία και χαρά και φέτος!

Love how bright your new kitchen is!
How comfortable for you if you can keep that classroom! As a substitute who changes classroom all the time, I know what a difference it can make!
