Cutting

The day started with a session re-drawing the the racks the Gorse Fox modelled yesterday. (He realised that he'd mix width and depth incorrectly and that could be problematic when trying to place furniture).

Once that was done it was time for the more prosaic chores - the lawns seemed to have put on a spurt and the Gorse Fox needed to get them back under control. This didn't take too long but generated a huge volume of cuttings. This meant that the GF had an opportunity to take a trip to the local recycling centre and dump several bags of garden rubbish and various domestic detritus.

Back home the Gorse Fox returned to the modelling. The Silver Vixen pulled up her chair and together we shuffled and moved various items of furniture round the model until we had an optimal layout. This will mean a trip to Ikea in  order to achieve the plan - but the plan does look as if it should work!

Just as we were finishing, the Skype bell rang. Cousteau-cub was on the line. Today is her birthday and therefore the anniversary of lighting up lives (all those decades ago !). We had a lovely long chat - and caught up on the gossip from Koh Lanta, and the details of their honeymoon on Bali.
