Started putting the first coat of eggshell on the living room ceiling (have I mentioned that I hate painting ceilings...), while MrM started to construct the shelf unit.
Late afternoon we downed tools and drove across to Andrea's in Belford, where we had a very enjoyable evening - eating, drinking and chatting. And meeting her gorgeous cat for the first time. Lovely to sit a while in Andrea's garden, listening to bird song by the fire.
It was glorious weather as we drove across to Belford, and I'm always surprised at how near the village is to the sea - but it's a couple of miles, so not quite as close as it looks in the blip.
