Out with the old...
I said to Ken "We liked it so much when we bought it, but we hardly ever have the pleasure of using it on a day to day basis. Why don't we move it to the kitchen for every day use and keep the new chook set for when we have guests?" He agreed, so that's what we have done.
But tonight we decided to 'christen' the chooks. Guess what we had for dinner? Roast Chicken of course.
This is the Noritake set we have been using in the kitchen for about 12 years. My niece was thrilled to bits when I called to ask if she would like it, as she had a very special bond with her grandpa (my Dad), and it meant a lot to her to own this, as it was originally a wedding gift to Dad from his brother when Dad married my stepmother. I asked Niece if she would be using the big teapot (at the back on the right), and she said probably not, and was happy for me to keep it, as it comes in handy when we have the occasional crowd of friends or relations over. So I've still got a bit from my Dad's dinner set too! Win win situation :-)
