It's school holidays,
and we are blessed with not one,
but two lots of child-free time,
... and we've been painting again!
Originally, the painter was going to paint the fence.
But he was called to another job,
and the weather was never right to call him back.
So I first painted some of the fence a year ago,
after much waiting for the elusive combination
of available time and dry weather.
And now another year has gone by!
Dad came with his gerni and we bleached
and hosed the fence last week.
Since then we've had
so no excuse not to paint.
I got the last little bits of the first coat
done this morning,
just before it started to rain at last.
Thankfully I can't paint again until the fence
has dried out, another 3 days.
And we've run out of paint.
It's been hard work,
especially in the hot sun,
but it's a good feeling to be saving about $1000.
Next job will be some landscaping in the front yard.
(In addition to painting,
we have had some dinners out,
a trip to the cinema,
and time to do other projects
in some peace and quiet :-)
