Back to reality
After a few months getting fat in America I returned to work this week in a very frosty English countryside( stunning in it's starkness). The new house has stone walls a couple of feet thick and they retain cold when not heated ,to the degree that it was minus 2 indoors today....very unCalifornian. Luckily a couple of rooms such as the above are slowly coming together as we may have to move and camp in the house pretty soon...much to Mrs OTW's dismay. The time away has however given me a chance to think about the restoration, and distance has given me some new ideas as to the origin of parts of the house and the course to take in tackling some of the emerging problems.....so all those mornings sitting in the sun eating muffins and drinking coffee were not wasted....were they?
