Managed to finally get the borders of the kitchen wall. Four hours of scraping, wetting and four letter expletives later, and the wall is now good enough to start the proper prep. Did I mention that Mrs H wants all the rooms doing ???? I don’t think she means the youngest lads bedroom (at least I hope she doesn’t), but all the rest of the rooms to do have at least one border. I know what you’re thinking, but when we (I) put the borders up, they were the height of fashion, and they do help create a straight line where the wall meets the roof. Oh yes, we are painting the kitchen.
It will seem strange, working a full week. Some departments work a flexi-time system, whereby you can have a day off every week, providing you have the time up. Well I would not get one every week, but I reckon I might make one every two weeks. Saying that though, last year I only managed to have one and a half days in the whole year !
