The final “must have” piece of the puzzle arrived this evening: writing desk and chair.
As expected the delivery arrived at the very end of the allocated time frame – 8pm. I had almost given up hope of it turning up at all. Then I had to take everything out of the packaging – no mean feat, let me assure you. The glass stand thingies were packaged in wooden slats which were nailed and screwed in place. The glass top is very heavy but I managed to get it up the two flights of stairs without too much drama.
As you can see by the picture above, there is still plastering work to be done to the inside of the window – and I’ll arrange that at some point in the future. But for now I’m happy that I have the essentials in place.
