I couldn't finish off the painting last night.
It wasn't that I couldn't be bothered.....my body just wouldn't let me. My shoulders hurt, my knees hurt where I have been kneeling down to do the cutting in around the skirting boards and the backs of my legs hurt where I have been stretching to do the cutting in along the ceiling line on the staircases.
All in all I am a bit of a mess....lol.
I really need to get it finished tonight after Ruby has gone home so DD is going to drop her home while I get on with the last bit of cutting in and then she is kindly going to do the rest of the rollering for me.
Once we hear from the carpet company with a date for fitting we need to whip up the carpet on the upper staircase and see what we can do about fixing a creak on the landing and a couple of the stairs. Then the day before they come I want to get the rest of the carpet up, hoover all the way down and then have a wipe over with some disinfectant. That carpet has been there for over twenty years so I think it will need it.
The day they come to fit it will be a bit of a Red Letter Day for me.....the first time in forty years that I haven't had to lay my own carpet.
Another first today......I am going to be making some rissoles for tea. I don't know why I have never made them before because my Grandma used to make them and I remember loving them So I am using up what is left of the pork from Sunday and I'll add some onion, breadcrumbs and herbs, bind it together with an egg and just see if they are as delicious as I recall them being.
Yesterday afternoon was a bit scary round here. Apparently the travellers have been setting things on fire and generally causing trouble so we had fire engines and police everywhere. I could hear the local gobs***e talking to the police and there was mention of them having shotguns and all sorts. Honestly it was like something off the telly.
Not much to do on the domestic front besides prepare tea and hoover before Ruby comes so I think I'll have a coffee before I start.
Thanks for dropping by today.
