At intervals during the day I finished reading ‘The Woman in White’ which I had neither time to review nor to scan the illustrations from The Limited Editions Club edition from 1964. I will do this tomorrow.
By early afternoon Nick had completed his transformation of our entrance hall/my office and the vestibule. In previous years he has decorated our sitting room and our kitchen to the same exemplary standard.
Once more demonstrating his flexibility he applied the final stages to the paintwork and gathered up his dust sheets which he carried upstairs where, tomorrow, he is to start on the Garden Room bedroom which we cleared as best we could for his access.
This evening we dined on succulent roast chicken; crisp roast potatoes and Yorkshire pudding; sage and onion stuffing; crunchy carrots; firm Brussels sprouts; and tangy red cabbage, with tasty gravy. Jackie drank Pays de l’Aude Rosé 2020, Becky and Ian drank Zesty; and I drank more of the Durif Shiraz.
