Nearly there and other things …


It's painting time. Eldest son came around to do the ceiling as Mrs H thought I would struggle. I'm not sure if she thought I was too short or too old. He is about 5' 7" and I'm 5' 4". I don't think it was a height issue. There was huge amount to cover, but … Continue reading Nearly there and other things …

Have I answered my own query …


Last month, I posed the question about upgrading to a paid plan rather than the free plan I currently use. The type of blog I write is basically a random thought blog. I think of something or something is on my mind, and I write a few words about it. My wife's argument was that … Continue reading Have I answered my own query …

Full of cold …


Yep, I'm full of cold. It started with a bit of a cough at the beginning of the week and it's now reached the 'messy' stage. Problem is, that on Saturday, we are all going for our annual 'flu jab'.

Not just green, but what was called ‘antique green’. Now I don’t know what that means !!! What I do know, is … Continue reading It’s hard work ….

Back on track …. (?)


   Really could not be bothered posting anything on Thursday. Work had been tiresome again, and I had actually felt a bit off colour. I had that feeling that was ‘not quite a hangover, but close’ type of feeling. It did cross my mind that I had the beginnings of flu. However it was neither. … Continue reading Back on track …. (?)

First day ….


   I am absolutely knackered !!!! I still have not recovered from the move on Saturday. Painting and decorating going quite well. Managed to get the ceiling done. Starting on the walls tomorrow. I should get the base coat and the two top coats on 3/4 of the walls done. Then I’ll have to move … Continue reading First day ….

Painting is such a drag …


   The decorating started in earnest today. Those few hours scraping the border off was just the start. Today was painting day !!!!! The ceiling is done. That was not so bad, and I got it done in an hour, but it’s amazing how much wall space there is in the kitchen. I was painting … Continue reading Painting is such a drag …

OMG !!!! I have a full week to do !


   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 … Continue reading OMG !!!! I have a full week to do !
