Having been at the chapel for the morning to serve tea and coffee to the Knit and Natter ladies, I came home at lunchtime to find the kitchen clock on the counter and a faint smell in the air. It took me a few moments to realise that the FH had been splashing some emulsion around - he had painted some of the kitchen ceiling. Some of it, because he hadn't thought it was a good idea to go up a stepladder whilst he was here alone, so he had just done those parts he could reach with a roller on a broomstick, which was most of it. At the weekend, the YFG and I will de-cobweb the cornice and paint the bits round the edges. He did a good job, and it was his morning's work. He retired to bed with a puzzle this afternoon whilst I went to the tooth inspector - she has decreed that a filling is necessary, but not until June, so I have time to save up!
And so another Bank Holiday weekend is upon us - the girls are looking at Monday as a day to catch up on their homework, and the best bit for me at the moment is that I don't have to have the school uniform ready for Monday this weekend, so I have a wee bit more leeway. I am hoping to spend some time on the kitchen and have it sorted in the extra day. But then I also need to get some gardening done...decisions!
