Back to the Painting!


Yep, back to the painting today.  Final coat on the ensuite door and hopefully it will be ready to hang this afternoon.   Whilst that is waiting, the walk in robe will be emptied and we’ll get a start on that!   The preparation has got to be the worst part of the painting, cleaning is not too bad because we are using water based paints.   The water based acrylic for the doors, door frames and skirting boards looks good but does not have the finish like an oil base but, an oil base white will yellow after about 2 years.   Cleanup is also heaps easier with a water based acrylic !!

We had a very nice dinner last night and met Lachlans girlfriend, Naomi.   She is a lovely girl, studying nursing at Newie Uni.   Kasey is pretty happy with her new HTC Desire smartphone that she got yesterday.   Raz has been a bit crook over the last cuppla days but is feelin’ much better now and has an afternoon to close shift today.   Kims back still plagues her; this has been the longest it has taken for it to get back to normal and she has to be careful about what she does about the house.

The weather has been ssooooo humid lately and the aircon has taken a bit of a hammering [dreading the next electricity bill!]   Not only that but the paint takes longer to dry when it is humid!

Barney is growing quickly!  He has turned out to be a very intelligent dog, not only because he can learn things quickly but, once learned he appears that he couldnt be bothered to do them again.  The only exception to this rule for him is that he must sit and wait for his dinner whilst we put it on the floor!   He has started to dig a small hole in the courtyard and I would love to know what is in there; his nose always seems to work overtime in that particular spot.  Kirra was helping him dig the other day too so whatever is there must be very interesting to dogs!!

It is gonna have to be a very quiet month; a million bills due!

Hope everyone is well and surviving!
