New York style kitchen from Tilestyle

Back in the late 1990s, a kitchen salesman turned up on my doorstep. We were living in Scotland at the time. Bemused, I let him in. I had a part-time library job and a baby under each arm. Did we look like we had £30,000 to spend on a kitchen?

After half an hour in our company, the salesman didn’t think so either. “What do you do?” he asked, trying to get a scope on our ability to pay. My former husband thought wildly. “Gardening!” he said at last. The salesman gaped. Our overgrown garden was trying to come in the kitchen window.
