I’ve been sending a few orders off to the United States and because the parcels have a long way to go, I make a note of getting in touch with the customer, just to let them know that their order is on its way. It always makes me laugh when a message pops up saying something along the lines of ‘the person you are emailing may not understand what you are saying‘. By George, and there was I thinking we spoke the same lingo.

The weather was kind enough to let me get a few snaps of the bureau this morning, but the vase of flowers went AWOL a few times, due to the blustery winds:

I’d planned on moving onto another piece of furniture almost straight away, but today has been very busy with small orders, so it looks like there might be a pause before the paintbrush is brandished again.
