  • Mood:

A productive Sunday

I am tired now. I went to Quaker meeting this morning and then after lunch G and I attacked his study. We've pulled all the books out of one alcove, hoovered them and the alcove. It doesn't sound all that much, but there were a lot of books and they were very dusty. He's also thrown out boxes and boxes of paper. I took 3 big boxes to the recycling yesterday and there's already another two big boxes to go. It's amazing how much paper you can get rid of when you retire from teaching.

Tomorrow the alcove needs scrubbing and repainting, then the books can go back and we can move on to the next alcove on the other side of the chimney breast. The plan is then to steadily move around the room, cleaning and repainting a section of wall at a time.

Re our recent trip to Hebden Bridge, I've downloaded the photos, I hope to be able to post them tomorrow.
