I have had a quiet start to my week, so decided to be positive and start decorating my lounge. For those who remember I had some water damage to the ceiling soon after I moved in due to the poor bathroom. So that has been my excuse to ignore the state ... it needs to dry. But I really want to get on and get it done. So the ceiling is painted, half the woodwork, and about 1/4 of the walls. There is quite a bit of furniture in there - cabinets as well as the settee and seat, so it's a case of doing a corner at a time. Not the traditional way, but it works!
Anyway, I have had enough ... one disadvantage of being single, no one to work with, so I get fed up easily!
Oh well, yesterday I also got my fridge/freezer defrosted in my spare time, so that was good.
Also a good clarinet practice done. I am playing again in a concert in Bude in September. What I haven't told you is that I have had to replace my clarinet, and even though I got a second-hand one, that was money I was not expecting to have to pay out ... so my bank balance is more than empty (thank you Mummy for the loan!)
On a final note before I get back to some more work (... not that I shall do much more today! ), I thought you might like to see this picture of my brother Nick and his family. We don't usually get pictures of him, let alone everyone together - it was taken by my eldest nephew's girlfriend while they were all on holiday last week.
Brenda, Tom (13),
Joe (10), Dan (15), Andrew (17 ... almost 18)
And for those who don't know, my brother is almost 5 years younger than me ... that picture made me feel truly ancient!
