In the wake of our departure from Melbourne, my studio in Ballarat was requisitioned for extra storage. It was a sorry sight, becoming so overfull that gaining entry was all but impossible. Recently we rented an additional storage pod and over the last few days I've reclaimed my old space and restored it to something of its former glory.

At last, the transformation was completed. But even as I paused to savour the reinstatement of order and serenity, Alice barged in, dragging Shane behind her. He declared the space has never looked better and Alice, who’s not usually fussed about the studio, took it upon herself to investigate every nook and cranny, with a particular focus on the new plan cabinet. Eventually, however, the lure of the garden proved too strong, and she withdrew, followed by the hapless Shane.
