Where it all started…

16 Jun

My kitchen obsession? I had a revelation about it the other day.

I bought my first kitchen at 22 – it had blue doors with a wooden worktop.

It was basic but I adored it.

But it wasn’t really my first kitchen…

My first was a Bluebird A La Carte Kitchen.

It stands as a testament to how much I loved this kitchen that I was vaguely jealous when my little sis acquired it many years later.

For those who you remember this kitchen – and for those of you who don’t – here’s the original TV ad:

Please note I never tried to cook actual food with my A La Carte kitchen – only ever sweetie fried eggs!

    Oh my! I always desperately wanted one, but never got one…booooo! Very jealous that you had one. I so remember the advert with the baked beans and swiss roll!! Must be where my obsession began too….I’ve been told I have a kitchen fetish, hmmmmmm. xx

    Me too! And my little sister got mine too. My mum used to give me baked beand and things to ‘cook’ in it, and then I’d do my own washing up! I haven’t seen that advert in YEARS!

    Thank you for the memory!

    I have to confess it wasn’t me that remembered the ad… I was convinced my kitchen was a fisher price one and was trying to describe it to the OH… and he said is it the one with the beans and the swiss roll! So it wasn’t me – but so glad we found it! 🙂

    As for remembering the actual kitchens, I’ve just been thinking too much about kitchens lately!!

    I can’t remember if I actually had one of whether I just played with it at school.

    They were so cool!

    Was never all that interested in the kitchen I had an obsession with the Early Learning car though. Perhaps that is why I never do any of the cooking?

Leave a little love...
