The day I wrote the previous blog entry on the two new window seats that have been constructed on the top floor of the castle, Gregor was working away on a third. It would seem somewhat unfair not to accord the same honour of introducing the third window seat to its expectant public. So here it is:

The repair at the front was an actual hole in the ceiling. The area at the back flexed alarming when pushed with a broom handle. This is a sure sign the plaster has detached from its supporting woodwork and is structurally unsound. After the defective plaster was removed, I climbed up a ladder and poked my head through the hole into the loft space to inspect the condition of the ceiling from above.
