I happened to mention to E at breakfast on Friday that I was taking a photo of the table to record its progress for my blog...
A little later, I was working in my study and I heard his sanding machine whining away. By lunch time, the entire table was in pieces and all the paint was stripped and the wood sanded, and it was getting a coat of clear finish. It will go through a few versions of this before it's done, but the task is out of my hands and I'm not complaining.
We took a trip down to Cairns on Saturday (very twisty drive down the Kuranda Range) and we found a set of early Victorian shelves in a secondhand shop, to put on the wall above the table. Lovely!!!!!!
So now I have no excuse but to get on and write.
Head down today...
But I'm cooking a spinach and pea risotto for dinner tonight, served with grilled prosciutto. Can't wait.
