Did It Myself!

As someone whose attempts to carry out the simplest DIY have long been regarded by Lynda as comic highlights of the week, I get a delicious pleasure when even a simple repair goes well.

Something happened in the Pump Room this morning. I spent an hour or two playing Don Quixote to the windmill, expending energy and emotion, getting nowhere.

A phone call produced the simplest of suggestions: “Have you turned the black valve by the first pump to the off position?”


I left the Pump Room in a state of mild euphoria.

I could conquer Everest.

Or even hang a picture!

Downe never fails to delight.
