As I have been wittering on for ages about it, I'm sure you all know our house is being prepared for selling.
To this end I have decluttered all my craft stuff, pruned the kitchen cupboards, my wardrobe and all the books and ornaments, I have also got rid of lots of furniture.
There is some decorating that needs doing and I'm happy to pay for the decorating to be done if my L&M doesn't feel up to it.
The hall, stairs and landing WALLS need painting, 10 years of careless lodgers and messy grandchildren has really taken it's toll.
As I'm not at work for a few weeks I've spent my time washing down all the woodwork, and scraping the paint off the glass panels in two of the downstairs doors. I found that the woodwork was all in good condition and didn't need painting.
My beloved decided he would do the work himself and to this end he sent me out to buy a specific kind of roller, I couldn't find said roller, I tried Wickes, B&M, B&Q, Selco & Screwfix.
Yesterday I took him to Wickes where he immediately pick up a completely different roller saying 'I told you they sold them'!
He swears black's blue that he gave me the correct information and I know damned well he didn't but I bit my tongue and kept quiet.
When we got home I started to prepare our evening meal and he started ferrying stuff upstairs. After a while I went upstairs to tell him what time we would be eating and I found him painting the fecking bathroom door!
So now all the woodwork needs painting as the door he has painted makes all the others look grubby, my L&M is of course complaining about all the work now needed.
