I had missed your post.
What you've wrote doesn't even happen in the movie. The ascending the staircase scene follows after Alfred in the kitchen (its a direct continuation of what is established in there) . That's why after , it goes back and cuts back (to a scene where she open's the door , a slight push in with the camera , she puts down the tray and observes a open door)...because he had interrupted it.
But yeah they are pretty mundane shots and scenes.
