280314 Ali pavisands

280314_LRTPRoL had a visit from a VIP tonight – Ali Baskerville. As it was a day of waiting for deliveries and tradespeople, there was little opportunity to look for any pavisanding (‘To display an impressive or opulent array of clothing and ornament; to flaunt one’s appearance’, OED). However, the day was saved by Ali and her bobble-hat! I have to thank the wonderful heating engineer, who not only fixed the boiler, but whilst waiting for it to reach the right temperature, pulled a heavy-duty power screwdriver from his toolkit and assembled the furniture. Not to self: read the label properly when ordering and don’t buy anything unless it says “delivered fully assembled”.

Day #87 of a 365 project, where the daily pic is informed by theĀ OED word of the day.
