Today sanding the floor began it is going to leave the floor a lovely rich colour. We were hoping that it could be completed today but insatead of being able to do a coarse, medium and fine sand, it is a slow job, in fact the coarse sanding is less than a quarter done. It has to be taken painstakingly slowly because of the undulations in the floor years of feet standing between the benches, the gaps between the floorboards have to be filled too.
I was hoping it might have all been done for Sunday but it looks as though it might well all go on to Wednesday of next week, I just pray it won't rain over the weekend.
Anyone know who patron saint of sanding is? Maybe I should just turn our rather black St Joseph round to watch over the work, and keep lights burning in front of him until the work is done.
