A BUSY DAY PLANNED

Today, without fail, we will be getting paint, rollers and so on and painting some of the exterior of the house.

The weather is going to pack it in come tomorrow, so I want to get as much done as possible today.

I don't know how Griffin is feeling this morning yet, he's still asleep.
Hopefully he's better.  Nothing worse than seeing your kid sick and unable to eat!  Particularly Griffin, who absolutely loves his food!

So, that's the plan for today.  I hope everyone else is going to have a neat day.  

ONWARD...

$800 later... and we have two 10 liter pails of paint, a new ladder, and an extension painting roller thingee.  Shit it's not a cheap exercise! But hopefully it will help get the house sold if it's freshly painted?

Well.... we only plan on painting about half the house cos the rest is OK.

Steve and Bex are coming over so Steve can help Stew.  I was going to, but Steve offered.  Will never say no to an offer of help!

That means I get to cuddle my grandsons instead.  Awesome.


 ABOVE:  it's a family affair.


ABOVE:  The extension roller is working really well... we sure didn't need to hire scaffolding. 

ABOVE: I can't believe how much they are getting done in one day!


ABOVE:  Keeping flies off sleeping baby.  His mother couldn't believe I completely covered him.  Like?  Why?  It worked.  *smiles*


Just an hour and a half after the guys finished painting for the day... it started raining. HEAVILY.

Luckily the paint had just enough time to dry!


Hot dogs and chips for dinner tonight, we were all too hot and tired to cook.




Steve, Bex and the boys will be leaving in the next hour or so, so it will be quiet here soon. Then I can settle down to watch Master Chef and Coronation Street. I suppose Stew will watch rugby. *smiles*

    1. :) Hopefully you get to put your feet up soon. I've been rushing around from 8am - 5pm today. Three hour workshop to start the day off for work, then providing support to a friend struggling with anxiety, then taking minutes for a meeting late afternoon. I think I deserve tomorrow off :)
