Today my wife announced that she was going to clean out the kitchen cupboards - this involves her coming to me ever five minutes to say "do we need this anymore?!" and brandishing various objects/items she has found in the aforesaid cupboards . I usually say - "bin it !" and then about a week later say - "where is so and so?" (I draw a veil over the resultant marital scene) However today she found a tub of the bright green paint I had used to paint my gaming board , so I was overjoyed as I had thought it was getting a bit jaded - see above .
Seeing the tub had been sat for about six years I was surprised it hadn't dried up and after a quick stir I painted the board - the one thing the photo doesn't show is it's a bit streaky ! - well as my late father used to say when regarding some painting he had done - "Hmm well perhaps it will dry okay !?" (like me he was not one of natures DIYers ) . So I hope a) it looks better when it drys and b) it drys !!!
Of course no decorating project can be completed without a mishap - I leaned across to try and get rid of an especially streaky bit and got paint all over my fleece jacket - I'm told Santa may be bringing me a new one for Christmas - what luck ! .
