{my Kitchen Table}

By Glasgow_mummy @glasgow_mummy
I have so many great memories that are associated with the table in the kitchen of the house I grew up in.
Painting, cutting, sketching, colouring in, glueing, rubber stamping....all manner of arts & crafts! My mom was rather crafty & I loved being sat at the table on one of the benches doing art work.
We also used to sit at the same benches drinking earl gray tea & eating delightful almond biscuits after having been outside playing in the cold (hilarious I know, but it's true!).
My sister & I also used to eat our dinner there most nights with our mom (dad didn't get home from work until later)... we used to have pink grapefruit as a starter regularly (seems bizarre as it's not something I eat now) and I was made to drink cups of milk (which I very much disliked!).
Now as a grown up (cough, cough!) with my own children, I am creating memories at our table.
We do lots of arts & crafts... painting, cutting, sketching, colouring in, glueing, rubber stamping (notice a similarity!?) and we eat dinner together every evening.

Yummy!I don't have a dining kitchen anymore in the new house, but I have a dining recess in the playroom/dining room which is attached to my small galley kitchen. I've taken the furniture from my old house with me, and thankfully it fits perfectly.

I've attached two Ikea curtain wires to the wall to display their artwork with plastic bird clips that I bought from cloudy blue in Aberdeen.
