The first task was to fill in the gap between the main body of the raised section and the edge of the baseboard. Rather than try and cut a piece of plywood with the exact curves required to fill the gap, I stuck down at intervals a number of off-cuts of plywood.
And then covered the remaining gaps with card.
And then using diluted PVA,
proceeded to cover the area with papier mache ie strips of newspaper brushed into position with PVA.
But you get the general idea.

A hardy perennial
Otherwise it has been non-stop electronic mixes from MixCloud.
This book is very long (unnecessarily so) and sometimes very mundanely written. But, it has had a deep effect on me: it has elevated (in my mind) the pursuit of Fell-running into a truly noble art.
I keep going back to it and reading another paragraph as if to get an injection of the sport, its dangers, thrills, torture, madness and eccentricity.
As for what it has to say about the Health and Safety society in which we live, I'll say nothing.
These fell-runners are heroes of our time.
