The Painters are Here!

Posted by berkeleyscot on August 22, 2008

We want the hall, living room and dining room painted, but I don’t want it to be done!

I don’t want the upheaval, the noise and the mess.

I don’t want men arriving at the house at 8a.m.  I don’t want them in my house, doing things to my house, even if they clean up after themselves and leave at 4.30pm., every day.

But we were ready for them. Richard packed up all the ‘stuff’ in the rooms.

Now the ‘stuff’ is a collection of ornaments, knick-knacks, generally stuff that sits on the shelves and just sits there, serving no purpose than to be looked at.

We have chosen to look at this as a life-altering opportunity.

Once the repairs and painting are completed, we’ll go through the boxes and decide what to keep or to recycle.
