Nothing on my workdesk this week – I’ve been decorating. I did a lot of decorating last year – 3 bedrooms, my craft room, 1 en suite, 1 downstairs loo, the hall, stairs, and landing, all the skirting boards, architraves, picture rails and banisters (oh, how I hate painting banisters!), and 4 doors. I decided to stop at the porch as I was cream crackered. Now I have done the porch!
It’s now a lovely, bright white instead of the off-white/cream it’s been since we moved in. I’ve painted both sides of the left-hand section and the big door (but only this side of the coat cupboard door as no-one else sees the inside but us). In the actual porch I also painted the skirting board and picture rail. They’d got a bit bashed when the new front door and double-glazing was fitted last year so there was some filling to do as well. My knees certainly didn’t like me doing the skirting board! I’m going to refresh the paint on the porch walls tomorrow. I’ve realised that I’m not as young as I was. I have 3 more doors to do but have decided that after that I’m not doing it again. The last 3 rooms that need decorating are the lounge, the dining room, and our bedroom. I am going to get someone in for those. I have the colours all sorted but I need to earn some money before it happens.
That’s me for this week – I’m having a couple of days’ break before finishing those 3 doors. Hwyl fawr am y tro!
