This last week has been so windy here that Tim has been unable to do any work on the barn and I've not been able to get on with anything in the veg garden, or do any of the spot spraying I wanted to get on with.
My 2 days at the Employment Tribunal ended up being just 1, so the spare day I had at home enabled me to finally get our accounts to the accountant.
With the weather so bad we finally bought the some paint to repaint the kitchen and utility room and I stated painting on Sunday. The ceilings are so high in that I'm using a scaffolding tower to reach the top, so for the last couple of days we've been "dancing" round the tower. Because the ceiling was just bare plaster, so far I've put in 2 coats of cheap base paint and 2 coats of quality paint in Jasmine White, but it looks like it will need a 3rd coat :( The walls under the window sills are being painted with a hard wearing paint, so hopefully it will stand up to dogs when they stand on their back legs and rest their front paws on the window sills to see who is at the gate. The paint has to be allowed to dry for 3 days to harden, then it's supposed to stand up to anything!!!! We shall see.....
