As usual a complete mess. Note the bright red calfskin gloves, an heirloom from Auntie Traudel. I lost my black gloves in Morrison's last week, so now it's red gloves for the rest of the ice-age. Propped up on the desk a print from 1850 called "Winter" by a little known artist/engraver. It i...s in a terrible state but for £10 at a flea market you cannot complain, and I think the lady is worth saving. I have since cleaned her up a little bit and decided to leave her in her original frame, despite its battered state. The morbidity is quite fitting for a high-Victorian artwork.
