I wish I needed a new sofa. Well that’s not entirely true as I don’t wish to be spending vast sums of money. I DO need a new hob and I’m not looking forward to spending the money on that at all as it will be expensive, and the one I want, the one that…

I know I know, we were supposed to be on a break, and then these pictures came in and it seemed a shame not to show them to you. And, if you are spending the summer pondering a refurb then it’s always good to have a few new ideas wafting about while you lie on…
