This is a bit late in the day because I have been painting some shelves. I am finally making progress in the Kirstyfication and deMikeyfication of Mike’s old study. I’ve been nibbling away at it for weeks, just getting a little depressed at how little progress I was making and then suddenly it was clear.

At least I haven’t got COVID, not yet anyway.

Lyme Regis on a stunning day. This would be a good place to write!
