Paint drips and cookie crumbs

Last weekend after the usual bike ride, doing the cleaning and washing I popped along to Homebase for some light bulbs.  While I was there I decided that recent weekends had lacked the required feeling of achievement and the obvious solution was to decorate the bathroom.  Being the smallest room in my very small house I calculated that I could start and finish it before going to see my parents for dinner in 3 hours time.  Obviously my calculations were off as was my conviction that the bathroom would only need one coat…

Sunday I couldn’t decide whether I should make the cookies I had told friends and family I would distribute that evening or do the second coat on the bathroom.  In retrospect I should probably have viewed the two as quite separate activities, but I think that the Duck Egg tint adds a special something to the cookies and the crumb texture in the bathroom will be a talking point for years to come.

Anyway, everyone received their cookies (some with a suggestion that they eat them in the dark) and I have a lovely green bathroom (which is a bit of a mystery as I thought I was paining it blue, but hey ho).

So what’s the plan for this weekend?  Well Saturday the focus will be making cards for the WI’s boot-fair-involving-no-boots.  Sunday I’ll be cycling 50 miles around the Kent countryside in the Cyclo Sportive as fast as I can so I don’t completely lose face when comparing times with my very speedy friend.

Maybe the weekend after I could catch up on my sleep a little…but we’ll see…:o)
