Yesterday, all stops were pulled out by the kitchen company as they were trying to locate an alternative cooker for our kitchen.  The problem was that we wanted a white cooker and there was a four to six week delay for one in that colour, despite their supplier promising that one was available.  They caused the same hassle over the fridge freezer too when they told the kitchen company that they could deliver direct before advising that the item was now obsolete so wouldn’t be delivered after all.  This caused a mad rush round during the week before Christmas, trying to locate an alternative and get it delivered before the kitchen was due to be installed.

Anyway lets get back to the present…  After some searching around, the kitchen company managed to work a little bit of magic and pull a rabbit out of the hat!!  They located the model I wanted in the colour I wanted and even had it physically inspected to make sure there was no mistake.

It was delivered and fitted today as were a few other things that needed finishing off.  I am very pleased with the finished kitchen and the cooker produced an excellent evening meal ;-)

Thank you to everyone at QA Kitchens :-)

      The kitchen had only been completed a couple of hours before so it was bound to be pristine. Most of the stuff was in boxes and I washed up after dinner so I could take the photo to show what the kitchen looked like before I populated it with all my clutter ;-)

    Happy cooking in your new kitchen. Such a “mess” to go through but well worth it when it is finished. Mickie :)

    CONGRATULATIONS, Cherry,. All good things come to pass to those who wait. And not too long for you, this time. Your days of travail are over, it appears.

      Overall, apart from the cooker scare, it was quite painless.

      I am so looking forward to getting everything back into the cupboards and enjoy cooking in there :-)

    That Astrid cxomment was from me, Cherry. My laptop is in the shop and I forgot to change Astrid’s info. Sorry about that.

    Delay over a white cooker? Surely that’s unusual?
