Kitchen Tales with Fairy Platinum

When I look back at my kitchen story I see a journey. A journey from purchasing our first house, creating our (my) first kitchen, to creating memories.

When we moved in the kitchen was quite bare and out dated. It needed a lot of TLC and it needed making into "our" kitchen, the heart of our home. The hubby left the kitchens decisions to me and I found the whole experience so exciting. I am very much a kitchen person and truly believe that the kitchen is the heart of the family home. It had to be perfect!

The original kitchen

I spent weeks looking at the different choices that we could afford before I came to a decision. Once my kitchen had been chosen, I left our fitter to do his magic in transforming the old kitchen into a kitchen where many times will be spent together as a family.

The old kitchen and flooring was ripped out and work began.

Miraculously, it was all ripped out, new units and appliances fitted in just 5 days.

We were lucky to have some great workmen who did everything in their power to get the kitchen finished so that we were able to move in just in time for Christmas.

This is our kitchen at the moment. In the future we hope to extend it. We dream of making it into the true hub of the house. Our dream area would be an open plan kitchen/diner/living area. One day we will get what we wish, but for now we love our kitchen and I love creating dishes for my family to enjoy.


I am a true believer in the quote "A family that eats together, stays together". We make it an important time of day when all five of us are together. This is our time to talk, catch up on what we've all done during the day and of course enjoying food! After enjoying a delicious, homemade meal together the last thing we want to do is spend a long time cleaning up. That's where Fairy Platinum comes in. We can enjoy all the food we like without worrying about leaving dishes to soak. We just place them in the dishwasher and let Fairy Platinum do the hard work! Perfect for spending even more time together as a family! Fairy Platinum is also kind to our dishwasher by not just cleaning the pots and pans, Fairy Platinum also helps to keep the filter clean! Which inevitably helps keep it going for longer!
