Connor and Josh completed their work on our floor this afternoon.
The last stages had them working on different locations alongside each other, and finally together as the work was completed in the vestibule.
Connor’s fitting of the tiles round the WC bowl and macerator; and his joins at the corner of the doors fit perfectly, and the link between the hall and vestibule is a seamless operation.
After spending some time putting things back together again, I scanned the next three of Charles Keeping’s exemplary illustrations to ‘Dombey and Son’,
‘There was a labyrinth of scaffolding raised all round the house’
‘The afflicted foreigner remained clasping Miss Tox to his heart’
‘Mrs Skewton smirked at her cadaverous self in the glass’
This evening we dined on second helpings of Jackie’s wholesome, well-filled beef and onion pie with accompanying vegetables, with which she drank Hoegaarden and I drank Patrick Chodot Fleurie 2019.
