I should have taken a photo in the daylight but this is when we got back this evening and it was finally dry. He had already disconnected the wall light in the conservatory so we had to rely on lamp light.
This evening we painted the house wall, glass of wine, snacks and listening to Abdolsute 80's! It is now being left to dry overnight and then we can put the bookcases back tomorrow and tidy the conservatory up :-)
