When Do You Stop Banging

IMG_20150426_100941

Saturday morning, I cook some breakfast, have a shower and open some windows. I settle at my computer desk to sort out some blogging, do my online banking, and to write to NPower. First I ask them for the £43.20 credit they owe me off my Prepay meter, and then on a separate email I specifically ask them to come back to me about my unfree electricity issue. I don’t want to confuse the two issues here.

Then I move the bookcase from the top of the staircase, the mirror and curtain pole.

I bang at the plaster hidden by said bookcase and wish I’d never moved it! Well I need real plaster for this whole and go to the garage to mix some up. This is going to take several layers. So here is layer one and as much as I could get to cling in said hole.

Next I try to remove the handrails and the brackets. The ones on the left that are mortared in I fatigued out, it was that or the grinder, and I did get the grinder out. The ones on the right well?

They were easily screwed in, but not so easy to screw out.

One just wouldn’t.

Then I sanded the areas down.

Looks so much better but there are undulated areas. So one with another skim.

And then to tackle the higher areas, and out with the ladder of hope!

Like I hope this is safe.

And some moment in life are scarier than others.

I kid you not.

And then I get banging that problematic areas. Which brings me to the brick.

And makes a mess of the floor.

IMG_20150425_201559

Hopefully this can be sorted. Anyone know how? I need to make more plaster I guess.

IMG_20150425_212948

And so I start the clear up.

IMG_20150425_213027

The walls are better but need resanding again.

IMG_20150425_213032

Nice.

IMG_20150425_213138

And slowly setting.

IMG_20150425_213303

So that's it, it took a while to get motivated but once in the mood I was getting one with it.

IMG_20150425_212929

Now to tidy myself up and

IMG_20150425_213710

put these tools on the kitchen floor where they don’t belong.

 IMG_20150425_213405

As for that SDS drill, it doesn't work! So onto ebay.

IMG_20150425_213443

I got the shelf up though, where there's a will there's a way.. Just don't ask how.

IMG_20150425_214901

Having second shower of the day. Man I'm dirty.

IMG_20150425_213651

And with that I turn on the unfree electricity and make things cosy

IMG_20150425_221319

Its pizza tonight cooked in the pain in the ass oven.

IMG_20150425_232340

After which I settle on the sofa to watch the film Alan settled for me. After a slow start,

IMG_20150425_232402

he was right, it is a good film.

IMG_20150425_234345

It finished the night off well.
