So, how do things stand? Well, I'm feeling refreshed from a lovely weekend away, at a friend's wedding (held at a youth hostel on the moors!) and I'm ready to get stuck in again.
The bedroom spread finally got finished first thing this morning (phew!), taking more than 3 days in the end. I got within a gnat's whisker on Friday afternoon but, annoyingly, couldn't quite get it done before we had to leave.
From tomorrow morning, I've just 8 working days and 1 weekend until 'D-Day', and that includes a day of mounting and posting (sound effect: sharp drawing in of breath). There is still a fair bit to do, and I will keep you posted, but please bear with me if my posts get thinner and wider apart for a while!
