We are both exhausted - went in on Saturday to finish off all the painting but by lunchtime we realised that this wasn't likely to happen as we had only just finished taping all the plaster board joints. Luckily Joan's sister and dad turned up, in their painting gear, to help. With their help all the walls and ceiling were given a coat of paint - it now looks gorgeous but there is still loads to do. I am sure all the passers by found it hilarious to see this grown up woman (me) struggling to get up and down a ladder and holding on for dear life at the dizzy height of 4 steps. Joan and her dad had matching hats on, she calls it her cricket hat which I did take photos of but my computer won't read the card from my camera. We finally left about 4 in the afternoon and my legs were just about giving up as we walked to the car.
