HERE are the pictures which for some reason I couldn’t upload (or is it download, and what’s the difference?) yesterday, showing Jason, Neil and Roy plastering the ceiling in the utility room. Also the junk from the room piled on the patio. Somewhere in there is the invaluable dish-warmer I won in a raffle 18 months ago, a device for making fire lighters from old newspapers, and a steam cleaner in the shape of a penguin. Needless to say I’ve never used any of them. It just proves my point that if you’ve got storage space you’ll fill it, mostly with useless gadgets. E-bay here we come.
MEANWHILE, back in the chapel . . . .
Mark and Ian (the plumbers) and Andrew, who works with David on the joinery and general building work, were installing radiators, laying floor boards, fixing architraves and skirting boards, and keeping an eye on the flooring contractors who travelled 50 miles to get here and then went home an hour after they arrived. The downstairs washroom had been dismantled ready for the new vinyl tiles which are still in the box. All a bit of a mystery.
David was working in the railway room and refusing to be photographed – the background was a bit boring so wouldn’t have shown him at his best, or maybe he was just too busy working on this most vital area of the whole project – but I managed to capture Mark, Ian and Andrew. Here they are . . .
