This is a question Conspicuous Consumption

Have you ever been photographed sat on a balcony eating a croissant; or wallowed in luxury just for the sake of it? What's the most ostentatious thing you ever seen or done?

I went through three months of hell last winter
tearing my new house to pieces to make a super massive kitchen. because i like sitting in the kitchen and having a beer. I am so fucking smug about it that the cupboards are full to bursting point with croissants.

This is the view from inside the kitchen during the snow

and this is it now. tonight i will have the doors open, sit on the sofa and do a bit of grinning. mainly because i'm now utterly crippled by debt and can't afford to do anything else.

Sort the side of the fridge out though. It spoils my view.

I preferred how it used to look
There was more of an earthy realness to it, the juxtaposition of the chipboard and four by three perfectly framing the outside, yet which has now been welcomed inside, the prodigal child returning to the parental home if you will.

Plus that island is shit.

it was quite nice
having snow falling in the hall and no heating. gave it a sort of caveman feel. did begin to lose its charm after a while though.
