Here's the new bathroom. Flickr set is here. It's not quite finished yet, but definitely getting there. We need to get some white paint over that drying plaster (once it's actually dried), and attach a bunch of things like toilet roll holders, mirrors and towel rails, but all the external contractor work is done, and done well. If anyone wants a recommendation for a general building firm in Oxford, ask away! They also do kitchens, external work, etc.

Overall, I'm pleased, aesthetically. We had to make a bunch of guesses about how things would look and work, and they all turned out well. Except for the light, that was a pissing nightmare. Is it too much to ask someone to make a bathroom-safe ceiling light that'll take low energy bulbs of a decent wattage?

Hmm, there's another cool strange thing on at the Botanic Garden soon (thanks concourse) does anyone fancy going? It's on for much longer this time, shold be easy to make it.

Great cat news! Last night Teasel played with half of my broken shoelace. It might not seem like a big deal, but he's been so tense since Harlequin came that he's not really been able to cut loose and have fun. One of the first things he used to do, when getting to know me, was take a few moments out to kill my shoelaces every morning while I was putting on my shoes. So it's a good sign that he's calming down a bit, I hope.

Still playing catch-up with the sketch books, these are both really quite old: early wedding designs and a twitter doodle.
