[and I tell you, this picture is very very forgiving]
An enormous standing ovation for the two fellas who've worked slavishly for the past four days to deliver us a complete and flawless kitchen. Not to mention immersing themselves wholly and completely in the surreal experience, that is the non-stop chatter of Milo, for the duration.
Props to Sam the tiler, plasterer and cornice man. And snaps to John the painter who not only did an incredible job, but offered to start the job on Saturday, and finish it on Sunday (no weekend penalty rates) just because.
We were so horribly demoralised by the experience with the painters from hell at the beginning of this journey. So we can be nothing short of elated as we sit back and gaze and gaze and gaze at what's been achieved at the close of this chapter.
