The Little Daily: Little in the Kitchen

Kitchen Giants

These shots might seem vaguely familiar to you – that's because they were taken back in November last year when I was 16 weeks pregnant. We'd gone away for the weekend for a family wedding. We stayed at a little bed and breakfast. Totally adorable and quaint and featuring THE MOST GIANT KITCHEN IN THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD. Well, the actual kitchen itself was tiny, almost like a little European laundry tucked away behind louvered doors. But check out me standing next to the bench.

No, I'm not a tall person, but c'mon, the kitchen sink is breast height. Breast height. Which meant that when I finished washing the dishes, I had to change my soaking bra. I almost had to stand on tippy toes to get my arms into the sink water. 

Witness me preparing to pour myself a drink. I look like a kid who's been allowed to use a drinking receptacle made of glass for the very first time. "Careful, little Susie! Both hands when you're carrying glass, there's a girl."  

Naturally, Bren, my lovely gargantuan man, thought this was the best kitchen he had ever seen.  

Let's avert our eyes from the Coke bottle and try not to think about what became of all that sugar later in the pregnancy.

Hello friends


I’m Angie!  I mum. I write. I wife. My husband would say this is the correct order.  He’s so neeeedy. I live with my family in Melbourne, Australia, where I complain about the weather for 90% of the year – but I can’t imagine living anywhere else. Except maybe in Lake Como, waving to my neighbours George and Amal each morning.

    Too funny! And so odd to have such a crazy height in a kitchen!

    I rarely comment but read every single post and always love them 🙂

    I did my GD test yesterday and have been ‘enjoying’ a choccie here and there of late so I’m holding my breath until the results come through..eek!

    It was so odd, Shayne!

    Thank you so much for reading and for commenting today. Lovely to hear from you!

    Good luck with the GD test – I hope you avoid it and can keep enjoying those choccies. xx

    Hilarious! You look adorable; I had to do a double-take when I saw the pics, to work out what kind of trickery may be involved.

    Breast height, eh? I guess that would make it about waist/hip height for me then 😉
