OK I've got just under 2 months to get my flat all smart and lovely for the arrival of Ari.

And what am I going to start with? Well my Sherlock Holmes chemistry desk of course.

"Holmes had been seated for some hours in silence with his long, thin back curved over a chemical vessel in which he was brewing a particularly malodorous product. His head was sunk upon his breast, and he looked from my point of view like a strange, lank bird, with dull gray plumage and a black top-knot."

The chemistry desk from the 1951 Sherlock Holmes exhibition.
The recreation of the room is now in the Sherlock Holmes pub, London.
The room as it was in 1951 can be seen here.

Im still looking for a retort stand or two, a tripod for my Bunsen burner and still need to make a test tube holder. Roll on the carboot season.
