My gorgeous husband surprised me with a present yesterday - from offcuts of the huon pine log that our internal stairs are being built of (from?) he has hand carved me a deep bowled spoon and made a beautiful chopping board for our new kitchen.

Talented, gorgeous, and thoughtful - what else could I need? They're currently in the pantry in the new kitchen - the first items (other than tools) that have been put in the kitchen!

And here are some photos:

So, tomorrow we're off to putty and sand and paint architraves and skirting boards and door jambs and doors and more architraves ... and a few other jobs as well - hopefully we'll get a few moments of sunshine while we're doing that :)
