Books, books and more books

Sorry it's been a bit quiet on the blogging front, but as well as too much to do and too little time to do it, I've also been a bit preoccupied with books -  hundreds of 'em!

Now mother in law's house looks like it is definitely sold, (fingers crossed!) we've started the process of removing the last bits and pieces. Now there were two passions in my husbands late father's life - records and books. It was an obsession to the extent where he had to have special cabinets made to take the records and shelves for the books! When I say there are about 1000 classical lp's and more than 300 books it's no exaggeration.

Most of the books are about history, English and European, but there are also loads of novels and even a series of natural health and healing books. Because of the state the house was in, all of them have had to be hoovered and cleaned before we can sell them or give them to the local charity shop, hence I've been a bit busy! We've got to raise as much money as we can to go into mother in law's dementia care home fees fund.

Only another 100 or so to go........well, at least until we collect the last batch!!!

Otherwise work has been all cane panelling, another batch were done last week.

And we're still trying to get things together for the Stock Gaylard Woodfair at the end of the month. It's all go!
