Got to the cottages at 11 and painted solidly until 5.50pm. Did the bedroom in Dill al by myself I did, two coats as well. Had to stop working when it got dark though as that cottage is severely in need of lightbulbs, so I expect I might have to redo bits I may have missed on one particularly gloomy wall.
UGH I hate painting cream.
UGH I ache.
Was supposed to go over to Glynn’s to have a girly night with Nicky and Gemma this evening but I checked LJ when I got in and Gem had cancelled. ‘Fraid I then wussed out on Nicky too as I was shattered and wasn’t feeling too hot either. To be honest I was quite flakey and driving over would probably have been a bad idea anyway.
This turn of events also averted a small disaster as I realised that before Nicky arranged her gathering, I had actually already agreed to go to the Chipshop Inn with my family for the pub quiz, and was thus probably in the bad books there. Ooops.
I would bore you with quiz details, but needless to say we won. We are Downes’, that’s what we do.
