|Toby-the-dog looking rather fierce and brave.....|
It has been a long weekend here in NSW Australia and we have spent it .... painting. Whilst Mrs HM's biological mum is in hospital with a broken hip (she is doing very well) we have swooped on the opportunity to paint her bedroom, lounge and dining room so it is nice and fresh for her when she returns from rehab. It has not been painted for 30 years, so it's probably due for a freshen up.
As you all probably know, it is the prep and cleaning that take the longest - the painting is the fun part. We have chosen combinations of Dulux Antique White USA and Dulux Hogs Bristle 1/2 strength and it is looking fabulous. We finished the last coat tonight and all that is left to do is remove the taping, clean and polish all the woodwork, dry clean the carpets, clean and put back all the furniture, polish the furniture, buy new bed linen and lounge room cushions, clean the windows, rehang the washed curtains and then lastly reinstall Mrs HM's mum! Easy....should be all done by morning tea time tomorrow- ha ha.
|Drop sheets and wet paint - that dreadful green paint all gone now.|
We have also been dog-sitting her pupper whilst she has been in hospital too. Toby-the-dog has been very well behaved....well mostly. Toby has only barked at the cat 17 trillion times in the last two weeks, chased the chooks endlessly, 'conversed' ceaselessly with the puppers next door, had excited peeing in every room, escaped out of the front gate countless times....(exhale)....so it's going well.
So that's how we spent our long weekend - gettin' stuff done.
Take care folks and stay nice.
