T the painter was here today painting a few parts of the exterior. He is now waiting for the next layer of scaffold to come down before he can continue.
Today was a momentous day for us as the rest of our furniture and belongings were delivered from Liverpool. They have spent 350 days in storage.
More furniture was deposited in the dining room. The beauty of things having been in a storage container all this time is that they are still beautifully polished, shiny, and free of building dust, unlike everything that was here during the works.
Oliver and Ruby amongst the dining chairs. The most difficult part of the delivery was the carrying and positioning of the piano, which is terribly out of tune. I don’t have a photo of it but will post one tomorrow. The movers did such a good job, especially considering they had to negotiate, in the front garden, a tree stump, an uneven crazy-paving path and scaffold posts obstructing the front door.
I wish I had a video camera for when Oliver rediscovered his sofa. He immediately laid claim to it and leapt on. He proceeded to get very excited, crouching with his ears folded back, glancing around wildly and leaping about on the cushions and back, fighting off his sisters if they even thought about hopping on.
It feels nice to have all of our belongings back under one roof almost a year after we moved. Another step closer.
