Domestic Bliss 2
Our flat is beginning to look more like a home. Sofa and dining table arrived yesterday, bookshelves today. The table was too big to fit in the lift so had to be carried up 14 flights of stairs to where we are on the 17th floor (work that one out if you can...). It also has a long and incredibly heavy slab of slate in the middle which may not be entirely practical but looks good . My colleague, Xiao Zuo, who supervised it all, asked if we had any air freshener, such was the state of the guys who brought it up. This evening I filled the bookshelves, resisting the temptation to browse, and got rid of the last of the boxes. Very satisfying. Still got all our pictures to hang on walls, but we're definitely getting there.
