My kitchen is a place of experiments,
play dough, chalk scribbles, arts and crafts.
It’s a place of baking and breakfasting,
preparing and cleaning.
It’s seen days of babes being washed in the sink –
and water splashed in a flood over the floor.
Games of ‘sink and float’ in baking bowls –
and flour handprints on the table, handles and door.
It’s been lit with twinkling lights and balloons,
even seen pretend ghosts hung from the ceiling.
Children’s artwork is displayed –
with a generous sprinkling of love.
Lavender hangs, to dry, from the window frame –
along with crystals and fairies.
It’s a kitchen that belongs to a busy family.
A kitchen that’s making memories and full of love.
It is the most used place in our home and –
if our home had a heart –
our kitchen would be it!
