Painting....the epilogue or is it?

Well after a week I'm thoroughly sick of this painting business......and sore!

I've managed to completely paint a 6.5 x 4.5 metre room with 3 metre high ceilings.......yes it's bloody huge and I'm still finishing off the woodwork and trim. That's the worst's so fiddly and after painting for hours you don't seem to make any headway.

Oh....and I also filled a mini-skip and put together a cupboard and 5 new bookcases (flat packs from the Swedish hell shop!)

I guess I haven't done too badly....there's just 4 times as much left to do!!!

Now I'm back at my day job.........yay :-(

So here's a question; What was the first edifice that immigrants saw as they approached Manhattan (New York) by ship in the early to mid 20th century? Think carefully.....

At the end of day one....I haven't got very far

Back to normal?

I have spent the past 7 weeks doing somebody else's job....he was away on leave. After that time I have reached the firm conclusion that he does very little.....but takes credit for a lot. I'm not surprised as it was as I expected but at least I can now speak with authority....not that anyone listens.

Now I have a little leave of my paint the not really a rest.

While I'm away no one is doing my job officially....we'll see........

We need to win lotto!

In other news:-

The Nobel prize committee need to look at a lot of other scientists to spread the accolades around more fairly and our Government in Australia really needs to call the election.....just stop pissing about.....not that there is anyone worth voting for on either side!
