It might be a Bank Holiday weekend here in the UK, but that doesn't been rest and relaxation at the new homestead.
Rachel's parents were here today, so we were able to really crack on with things again.
Rachel and her mum put together the posh new garden furniture (see above) , while I was unloading more comics and graphic novels in the office (see below).
While all this was going on, Rachel's father - amongst other things - was putting together, and securing to the wall, a number of the Ikea shelving units in the gamesroom.
This meant I could, later, get on with filling the shelves: first up was getting as many of my Hachette Marvel Graphic Novels on the shelves, in numerical order.
Then, when I ran out of those (for the moment... there are more around, somewhere), I started to line up miniatures in the centre shelves - which are going to have glass doors on them.
The idea, then, is that they can be easily picked out and plucked off the shelves ahead of time when needed for gaming, but the doors will help keep the dust off them.
Unfortunately, I'm beginning to suspect that I have seriously underestimated how many miniatures I have for display.
I had wanted some of those shelves in that unit for actual gaming books, but there's still plenty of shelving to be secured, so I will find space eventually.
The final units can't be put in place until after George the electrician and his mate have put the new lighting in the room, and moved the switch from the corner where the final units will be going.

Having been let down by a charity the other day, which was supposed to be sending people round to collect some of our chests of drawers and smaller units, Rachel put some up on Facebook Marketplace again.
And the chest of drawers was gone in five minutes.
Rachel did have to deliver it to the woman who wanted it, but she only lived around the corner.
Unfortunately, it transpired she lived in a first floor flat - so Rachel earned that £10 she sold the chest of drawers for, lugging it up there for her!
The other big job of the day was to ready the lounge for the decorator, whose coming in on Tuesday, for three days of removing the fixed cupboards in that room and painting the dark walls a lighter colour.
