Having finished the bathroom at home, Bob drove to Elephant and Castle to put up some bookshelves for Liz and Jon. Like us, they are ardent readers and book collectors, both working in publishing, and their collection was getting a bit messy.

Here are two pictures of the space on the left of the fireplace in the lounge of their flat.




Bob went down Friday evening, and worked all day Saturday, returning Saturday evening. Liz sent me this picture of the new shelves and the sorting she has done so far!



Jon - a well brought up child - was also suitable grateful - but I dread to think exactly where he put this graffiti!


Nobody could accuse my man of laziness this week! But next year, I am determined that we will have a summer holiday which does not involve putting up tents, putting up shelves or laying down floors!

How about putting up sunshades and putting down beach towels?

  1. Oh, WOW! That looks great! I would love some shelves for all my books and DVDs as well. :)

  2. I'm afraid to say that we've partially finished the reshelving, and the new shelves are now full. Got a few boxes of books that will have to be shelved elsewhere, and a few boxes to give away/sell, on top of that. But the shelves look ace! The graffiti was spotted in the ladies' loos in the Market Porter, a nice pub on the edge of Borough Market, FYI.


Always glad to hear from you - thanks for stopping by!
