Spick and span
Laid up over winter with a damaged knee I was not able to do the heavy outside work I would normally do. Taking advantage of my enforced slowdown I was able to tackle the large oak panelled living/dining room. The room built in the 1890's for his estate manager by Lord Leverhulme was in a rather sorry state but the application of several pounds of wax plus a couple of hundred hours elbow work soon had the panels in decent shape, the fireplace did however need rather more drastic work. a few more weeks work on the room with the help of the littlest Princess and we will be golden!
