All Glossy

IMG_20150831_120342

Today I decided not to have such a big breakfast.

IMG_20150831_202648

And with a full belly, look for some home insurance again.

IMG_20150831_131645

Following that I decide its time to get the white gloss paint out and do some painting on the staircase.

IMG_20150831_174730

And I do it all, the side bits of the stairs,

IMG_20150831_174753

the hallway door frame, the frontdoor, door frame,

IMG_20150831_174811

the three bedroom door frames and the loft.

IMG_20150831_174649

Then I do the rear door, and the skirting boards in the rear hallway and the rear door!

IMG_20150831_174707

And then the bathroom door gets its first lick.

IMG_20150831_174747

I look at the hand rail.

IMG_20150831_202804

But admire the paint work whilst being so very very high on paint fumes.

IMG_20150831_202854

Perhaps this isn’t the best place to admire it!

IMG_20150831_220117

And then I play Skyrim.

IMG_20150831_214459

I have a very very good session on Skyrim.

IMG_20150831_220105

I am enjoying it so much once more. That's good, and this is a big, big game.

So Glossy

IMG_20150831_120342

It bank holiday Monday which means, well no work!

IMG_20150831_131645

Apart from the work I wnat to do in the house. I think its time to paint something inside today. I get the white gloos out.

IMG_20150831_174649

Then I decide to do the rear hall skirting board.

IMG_20150831_174707

Then I decide to do the bathroom door!

IMG_20150831_174730

And the skirtingg up the stairs.

IMG_20150831_174744

Well at some point I’m going to have to retry this another way.

IMG_20150831_174747

Waht a mess.

IMG_20150831_174753

The paint however goes on well.

IMG_20150831_174811

Mostly on the skirting, but here and there a bit on the carpet.

IMG_20150831_202854

By the end of the day it looks fab, it smells fab and then I remember

IMG_20150831_202648

I need to get some house insurance for the year, so online I go.

IMG_20150831_220117

And finally it is time to relax. So you know what, I put Skyrim on and continue the story.

IMG_20150831_214459

And tonight I’m well into it.

IMG_20150831_220105

New places, new things to do. This is great, this is ace.

My One And Only

IMG_20150830_111740

When I do get up again I make myself a wholesome English breakfast.

IMG_20150830_112710

I asked Buddha if he wanted any but he didn’t open his mouth.

IMG_20150830_112717

i ponder if it is him who is looking after the plants when I’m not looking?

IMG_20150830_112737

Erm nice, but that makes me think.

IMG_20150830_140731

I should do something useful and pain the gate.

IMG_20150830_140737

So that's what I do, black to match the front fence.

IMG_20150830_140318

And then I think about painting the bricks. So I paint them with the metal paint too.

IMG_20150830_140327

Which I know is wrong but do it anyway. And yes I think it does look better!

 

 

IMG_20150830_141521

And with that I put my feet up once more. and have a cup of tea. Enjoy admiring the mushrooms.

IMG_20150830_141526

The toad stools and

IMG_20150830_141532

nice flowers,

IMG_20150830_142606

the Buddha is protecting.

IMG_20150830_141547

yeah truly nice.

IMG_20150830_143656

Then I look at that one apple the apple tree has produce and think of the bible.

IMG_20150830_143708

I pick that one apple and consider what it may taste like.

IMG_20150830_144008

Then I bite that one apple,

IMG_20150830_143527

And with that it starts to rain!

IMG_20150830_144702

I cutdown my sunflowers, I harvest the heads and put them in the garage.

IMG_20150830_175024

I head over to my parents, to fix the handbrake on my Skoda. So off with the rear wheel, mess around with the adjuster and back on. Pull the lever and yes it moves as it should once more. If this doesn’t fix it this time though, it needs a new calliper.

IMG_20150830_175043

I give the car a wash with the world best smelling and cleaning solution know to me and then

IMG_20150830_175032

play in the suds.

IMG_20150830_175303

Wow, she gleams once more!
