Nick's studio, yesterday

Sunday was a busy day again.   Nikki hired a car (a Rav4) and I drove to a hardware shop to buy concrete mix, paint, a ladder, and all of the paraphernalia needed to clean, fix up and make "liveable" Nick's new studio space.  We also picked up a second-hand door to replace the seriously damaged one that opens onto the back yard.

The car full of hardware goodies....





And then the work started....  painting....



the concrete patch along the edge of the room....



and then the door repairs.



By the end of the day,  we were all exhausted, I think.  I was anyway, but here are some of the results...  fuzzy photo,  but it suits the mood!  Nick,  in his newly renovated studio,  with Frank waiting for the next instructions!


Home again,  and Jonathon arrived, burrito in hand.   He and I went out for a coffee and a glass of wine while Nick continued with his assignment that is due this week!  This morning,  the car is returned,  Nikki is off to work,  Nick is on his way to artschool,   and I'm going to meet Jonathon shortly.
