Newtown house.

I was shopping in Newtown today, for Salvation Army furniture. I bought a dining table and two chairs. The chairs match each other, but not the table and are in reasonably good condition. The table needs  refinishing, but will get a tablecloth until spring because I haven't got a workshop and will have to do it outside.
Newtown is a run down suburb, ripe for gentrification. It's full of skinny little wooden houses like this one. This one's quite plain, but others have all sorts of  leadlight windows and other architectural twiddles. They are really cute, but would no doubt be draughty, full of borer and completely devoid of insulation.
