to set up a mini kitchen in my bedroom?

i'm thinking of the colder months coming in. I normally end my nights huddled under a blanket in the living room clutching a mug of tea and fending the dog off my packet of biscuits. for the past few years my bedroom just hasn't been a welcoming comfortable room due to me having moved a couple of times and never really properly unpacking everything or adding any personal touches to it. but now i'm getting all that sorted and making it really homely and was thinking this evening how nice it would be in the winter months to have a kettle in the room so I could slurp tea in bed all evening. and then I thought, well I could keep a wee biscuit tin up there aswell and get a minifridge for milk and some cheese and water. but am I now verging on the social recluse end of the scale? i'm single and already have a cat? is it too late for me? grin

Sounds like the dream to me...

You'll need a toaster too, for toasted tea cakes with your cup of tea grin

ah catsize- I had considered a teasmaid but wondered if was just a step too far into the 'old before my time' category?

And one of these

StephenFrySaidSo Thu 05-Sep-13 22:53:46

ooh toaster yes!! good point and will make the minifridge more justifiable to keep the butter in. I suppose i'd need a bit of a cutlery drawer and a breadbin too?

stephen, I got one at 28.

Catsize Thu 05-Sep-13 22:59:03

Dishwasher would be OTT.

StephenFrySaidSo Thu 05-Sep-13 23:00:56

i'm 27- I've got 10 months til i'm catching up with you ya ol' fogey! wink

I don't even have a dishwasher in the kitchen yet grin

Positively geriatric now. Nearly 36!

Sounds perfect. Can make hot water bottles too.

You know what's next don't you? Don't you?

The One Big Slipper.

The slipper that's one slipper, but for both feet.

noel- I got one of those for the cat! they sell them for cats!

StephenFrySaidSo Thu 05-Sep-13 23:07:19

she completely ignored it of course! hmm

NoelHeadbands Thu 05-Sep-13 23:08:52

Wait...they not only do slippers for cats, they do One Big Slippers for cats?!? <boggles> shock

I need to start flicking through the Betterware books before I bin them I think

StephenFrySaidSo Thu 05-Sep-13 23:12:29

they do a one big slipper that the whole cat fits into, rather like a padded sleeping bag sort of thing. the idea being that their body snuggles into it and their head poke out the top looking all cute and cosy. of course my lady wouldn't humour me for a photo op. grin

I'm 26 and have never heard of a teasmaid till now looking at pictures it looks AMAZING!!

juneybean Thu 05-Sep-13 23:13:19

I've wanted a teasmaid since I was about 8 and my nana used to make us a brew of a morning!

StephenFrySaidSo Thu 05-Sep-13 23:13:44

poundstretcher sell them and possibly B&M If I remember correctly. not that I actually went looking specifically for it

I had a set up like that when I was a student, mini fridge for my milk and a coffee machine, I never had to get out of bed (except for toileting and water collecting) it was bliss!

StephenFrySaidSo Thu 05-Sep-13 23:15:35

aww I've just had another realisation! when I get my kitchen set-up- those sunday mornings the dcs are staying at their dad's will be awesome! I wont have to even get up to eat! breakfast in bed!!

StephenFrySaidSo Thu 05-Sep-13 23:16:20

it would be like a premier inn in my house! grin

FreudiansSlipper Thu 05-Sep-13 23:22:51

sounds wonderful

and as a special treat order a takeaway to eat in bed, now that is really being lazy the rest is just being practical

Could you just move the bed into the kitchen? grin then you could do bacon in bed too
