Early this morning, for the walls at Lal Quilla, I made A3+ prints of Raj’s chosen photographs, including Lymington High Street from 24.2.16;

Boats in Lymington Harbour from 31.12.15;

and Fishing on the Quay from 30.8.16.

Meanwhile, Lee was on hand to help Richard with the installation of tall cupboards.

Jackie and I lunched at Hockey’s Farm Shop at South Gorley, where warmth and comfort is available in the form of blankets, teddy bears; and meals such as my “hungry” breakfast and Jackie’s cheese and chutney toastie with plentiful salad.

On our return, a group of ponies attempted to deter us from passing Holmsley Camp Site.

Meanwhile, Richard, alone, had made considerable progress on the tall cupboards. He continued this throughout the afternoon. Just look at that join around the beam. The door, incidentally is one that had to be sacrificed, as our fridge freezer will be positioned in front of it. Note the clamps holding the sides in position. They have been pinned at the back and glued at the front. With a face mask protecting him from sawdust the carpenter cuts the sides to shape and fits them perfectly in place.

My choices of the assortment of instant soups and sandwiches on offer this evening were minestrone and egg mayonnaise, followed by donut.

  1. Beautifully bespoke tall cupboards! I’m not a fan of tall cupboards as I can’t reach the top shelves without the use of a step stool. Once I saw a design that incorporated a little step ladder into the unit which was very clever but still didn’t make me want to have tall cupboards……. I often wish I was just a couple of inches taller! 😀

  2. I gasped at the horses and averted my eyes at the kitchen chaos. It sets my heart a-flutter. I pointed out the lovely animals to my husband who said – without any prompting – maybe we should go to the south of England. See what your horse photos do to people?!

  3. I remember my carpenter in Oxfordshire remarking that ‘joinery is all in the joins’ …. your fellow takes this wisdom to the max as clearly demonstrated by the shot including the beam 🙂

  4. I am always happy to see the progress made on the kitchen. I also enjoyed horses “in their own lane” slowing down traffic.
    I liked the images made into larger framed prints for Raj. You are very busy in so many ways! Garden, home, parties, printing and searching for your afternoon meal. So glad you settle in and eat soup and sandwiches. Happy week ahead to you and Jackie!
