This morning, John and I woke up to aches and pains in places we had forgotten existed! Come to think of it, it must be 15 years at least since we decorated a room.
We thought that the two small rooms which make up the dog room would be a doddle. Not so! It would have been easier to decorate a medium sized room! John doesn’t do high any more and I can’t do low!
Just turning round in a restricted space isn’t easy, when there are steps to accommodate, sinks and the like to avoid and corners which are just out of reach!
Then there’s the pipes and the woodwork – oh why didn’t we start this before christmas!?
There’s no way it’s going to be actually finished for the tiler to make a start, but at least we have made a start.
In fairness, the dogs are being really good, and slept in their bed in the kitchen last night without protest. My sister, Janet, has kindly “volunteered” to take the girls (spaniels) whilst the tiler is here, so that will be a big help.
Roll on Friday, when it should be finished (all apart from any “bits” we haven’t done by then) – and the cleaning up!!! Oh Deep Joy!
