Charles and his two boys are here for reinforcement. And the work is progressing pretty well. Amandine and Tessa drove today to Yoevile to get some multi-purpose saw that may save the day. Though what we really need is a little more time to actually finish this project. Although we have done a lot, some big steps are still ahead of us - the trial fitting that is scheduled to start on Friday, the assembly of the ornamentation and to follow - the shipping of the big pieces and the real assembly in London and on and on and on.

At the same time, we are over the mid-point of construction at Hooke, and it is quite amazing to see ourselves surrounded by the pavilion, albeit in pieces. And we definitely settled in here in the woods. Routine walks are organized in the evenings, the DVD collection had quadrupled and the thought of being here right until the End Tables doesn't seem to scare anybody. Working on our portfolios? What portfolios?!?!?!?
