Ah! Lotte’s not had her own place to call home since we left the tumbledown cottage in Norman Park – over four years ago. Some of that time was spent in storage boxes. The rest, piled into cupboards, utterly out of sight, often out of mind, and altogether unnoticed.
Now, it’s only one more day sweet Lotte, before you’ll have your own special sideboard. With a richly glowing patina. A pea green backdrop for your glossy whiteness. And a spot right beside the front door. The sun will shine in on you. I will see you each time I come home. You’ll be easily retrieved for special dinners. You’ll inspire special dinners!
And with birthdays and Christmas just around the corner, it is indeed your time to truly shine sweet Lotte.
Just the door frames and drawers to finish scrubbing and one more coat of pea green. I still have 3 whole days to go before he who is not keen on shuffling furniture is home!
