My current project is the area by the bed. This is because, while this is in such disarray, we're sleeping in the attic. Which is fine, and is where we normally make our guests sleep, but I'm really quite keen to get back into the real bed. This is how we started a few weeks ago.
This week I've been painting. Two watered-down 'mist coats' followed by a top coat of white. It's starting to look like a room again now.
Tonight I'll paint primer on the cladding (which doesn't involve any leaning or clambering or stretching, thank goodness). Tomorrow I'll have to do all my hanging and leaning and clambering again for the second coat, and again one evening for the third. Tonight I'll also remove everything from the bathroom, ready to plaster the walls, hopefully tomorrow.
Slowly, were getting there.
There was also a box of redcurrants, which I never quite know what to do with. This time came to the rescue, with a recipe which I largely ignored other than the bit which said 'there's no need to go through the tedious business of stripping the currants from the stalks'. Sounds like my kind of recipe - so I gleefully threw them all in a pan (without weighing them), together with 'some' sugar (again, no weighing).
