So today 24th June they
completed the replacement of all guttering and down pipes and I just about
have my office finished.
And so the scaffolding is now down and ready
to be taken away
Junior working on the guttering
And so with these pictures you can see the
painting of the upper floors is complete and now just the porch to finish
off. Starting to look quite smart :-)
And here is the office with my office
furniture in place and all my computer equipment. Books on the right first
half bookcase are what I am working on at the moment. Books on the right
second half and the left bookcase are ones that are waiting for me to
finish one of the current books where I'll then move on to one of them and
so you can see I have plenty of work in progress :-) Just got to get
my under bookcase lighting done and that air vent moved and that should be
And on 26th I now have my lighting in place.
Over my computer I have my certificate of honorary membership of the Clan
MacIntyre Association and also the mounted roof slate that my neighbours
back in Scotland presented me when I left the house.
I've also got my lounge
organised at long last...likely need to get myself a sofa and some
curtains but at least the room isn't too bad to get going with :-)
I also came across two line
drawings and wondered if anyone out there knew what date these might be
and anything about the artist. I guess they might be around the WWII
period. From what I can make out the artist is Arthur L Milne.
On the 28th I spent a day
on a bus
touring the area of Chatham
Kent with the students that are going to man the various visitor
centers around the area.
