DIY Monkeys

Phew, I'm pooped!

We were up early this morning. Well, I was up at 8am. Stephen was "too excited" and was awake at 4am. We had a sausage breakfast and then went over to our new house.

Stephen tackled the living room. He has bravely put three coats of white paint over the red ceiling, however, red is still showing through.

I tackled the master bedroom, spending the whole morning stripping wallpaper.

We had a picnic lunch on the floor (no chairs or table yet) and then did another trip to Homebase. I was too tired to decide on paint colours, so I let Stephen choose. I hope I won't live to regret this.

We then spent the afternoon doing more DIY. Stephen continued in the living room, beginning to get some colour on the walls. I put the undercoat on in the bedroom. At around 4pm I felt we deserved a coffee break. I made the coffees and called Stephen in. Whilst he was cleaning the paint brushes, I ate a Wagonwheel. Then we sat down with coffee. Stephen ate his Wagonwheel, and I decided I needed another one.

Stephen thought this hilarious. I burnt a lot of calories this morning stripping wallpaper.

By six o'clock I had had enough. We cleaned up and popped to Sainsbury's to buy a naughty tea. Whilst we were there we stumbled across the "Well being" aisle.

As you may be able to see from the picture, it was stacked high with Quality Street and Celebrations. How we laughed. (We were very tired.)

Off to Welwyn tomorrow to see a new baby, then back to the grindstone.

I'm shattered too. I ache.

And I didn't wake up at 4am because I was "too excited". Anne made that up. I woke up at 4am because I am a bad sleeper. You, of all people, should be more sympathetic Anne.
