Although he's posing with his axe the children were under strict instructions that no weapons were to be taken in, much to his disappointment. Anyway, he had a fantastic day and wishes school could be that much fun all the time.
I had the urge for something really juicy today, and this melon was perfect. No slicing or chopping, I just scooped the seeds out and dug in with a spoon. Delicious. I also got on the treadmill today, for the first time in a long time. Go me!
On the jigsaw front there are now flowers in the vase and the arch border is also done. Which just leaves all the black and white pieces to fit. It's a bit heavy going to be honest. Unlike a pile of sky pieces which at least have different shades of blue to help you, these are solid colours, so I'm literally trying one piece at a time.
And the decorator has been working up at Number 14 today. Having initially thought the yellow wall was just backing paper that had been painted, on closer inspection he decided it was layered wallpaper and the best thing to do would be to strip it off. The top layer came off really easy to reveal another 3 layers underneath.
To be fair most of the layers had been removed but for some reason patches of the 3 layers have been left all over the wall. Anyway, see the 3 brown patches, that's wall and that's what we're aiming for. Thankfully my nephew is coming down tomorrow so this will be his first job.
I love nephews!
