When Jared suggested getting a built-in electric heater in the kitchen I remember scoffing and using the words ‘pointless’ and ‘excessive’. I also described getting a dishwasher ‘excessive’, but you should see how eager I am to shove every conceivable piece of kitchenware in it. I really should think before I speak sometimes. I put him wanting one down to nostalgia; as his parents have one, but little did I know I would become its biggest fan. Positioned below the hob it is perfect for keeping my thermal sock clad feet excessively warm, and it’s a cosy place for the boys to snack after returning from the cold outside. It’s becoming a regular spot for the three of us to sit and appreciate the instant stream of warm air. I’ve caught Winston lying in front of it more than a couple of times – probably because he still insists on wearing shorts indoors which drives me slightly bonkers.
I love this picture because they are so focussed on what they are eating (raisins) and it highlights how dinky Rufus is. People used to comment how small Winston was for his age and it’s starting to happen more and more with little Ru. He is still showing no desire to walk so I’m rather glad he’s light.
I highly recommend built-in kitchen heaters!
