I spent the whole day Friday in painting mode. OH and I worked hard yesterday clearing out the office of computers, books, shelving,furniture, more books, folders and books, I began at 8.00 am sharp prepearing to paint. This involves the laying of dust sheets, taking down blinds, filling in holes and cracks and masking off the beams with paper to prevent paint splash. Entertaining methods of reaching the beams included balancing on top of the step ladders and then using the small step ladders on top of the desk. That climbing course came in handy !!
The hours passed by and the 5 litres of “China Cup” emulsion ebbed away on to the ceiling and the walls with a fetching spatter up my arms and across my face. At last around 4pm it was complete. Just a small matter of bringing everything back in now…..
