This is it BEFORE I attacked it with a hammer and paint:
ABOVE: I will add an AFTER photo later on today, once I've finished putting the white paint on top of the blue paint.
Stew has gone back to work, and I've got a couple of jobs to do in Manurewa this morning, before going to the Hospice Shop after lunch.
So, it's kinda back to 'normal' around here until the kids go back to school at the very end of the month.
Right, catch ya later...
Well... been out and done me jobs, came home and put white paint on the marble top unit and now waiting for it to dry.
I seem to have spent a lot of time this summer watching paint dry!
At least I'm not bored shitless!
Lunch time, then off to Hospice shop, am taking Brylee with me. She can help around the shop dusting or tidying up. I'm sure it's better than staying home with her brother ... who is annoying as hell half the time.
Typical teenages, wind each other up.
Thank god school's back in 3 weeks.
ABOVE: My mind is now wandering around the house thinking "What else can I paint?"... but maybe I will leave it at that!
I don't want to have too much in this effect, only in the 'dining room' I think.
Well... a fairly busy day in the shop this afternoon, with heaps of donations being brought in too.
Masses in fact. I don't envy Debs having to sort and price it all.
Brylee really enjoyed herself too, she did some shopping as well as helping another volunteer to hang clothes for sale.
ABOVE: A darling little giraffe for Bex.
Seeing as we shall be having a tiny baby in the house in just under 16 weeks it might just be useful.
End of Day: I've had an awesome day. And a nice evening too. Time for bed (11.12 pm).
