I had a ‘good wife’ (though I’m not married) day today. Everything is cleaned, so no cleaning to do. The gardening has been done; what needed planting is planted. I moved onto indoor jobs. I’ve started on the painting. I washed down walls, sanded down wood work in the upstairs bathroom and downstair loo. I’ve got two coats of paint onto the loo walls and I’ve put one coat onto the wood surfaces. I’m feeling very proud of myself. I’ve dug the old paint out of the garage and it will have to do. I don’t have any gloss for the wood work but the brilliant white ‘silk’ paint covers wood and metal, so it says, and will do just fine for the wood work. The cabinet will be painted ‘French Grey’, as is my hall table and my bedside drawers, and anything else that needs a coat of paint until I use up all of the paint! I won’t be wasting any.
I deserve a drink……………..pimms anybody?

Well alright, you’ve got me there. I have a cheaper alternative. Austin’s from Aldi. All the supermarkets seem to be making their own version of Pimms, along with some Aldi lemonade, which tastes remarkably like Schweppes. It’s an indulgence at almost £5 a bottle, but what a treat after a long way on a paint roller!
Thanks for all the ‘wedding’ comments. I wish them a long and happy marriage and a lovely day but I will be sticking to my ground and I’m afraid we won’t be going. We don’t feel bad, we’re just related and we get invited out of polite tradition; the most important people to them will be their immediate family and friends.
