I am feeling slightly better. Still need to go sit down more than usual though. Yesterday I was all dizzy and shaky in the morning so though I turned up, I did not contribute at all to the pizza oven building at doushkasmum
abode. By afternoon I had improved enough to manage some pruning and weeding activities in their front yard. So the rosemary bush* looks healthily growing rather than half dead. I also knitted the first 10 or so rows of an important hat.
I should post more about the hat later I think. In addition I took over many dozen squeaky clean crown lager bottles. I collected and cleaned these about 3yrs ago thinking I might do some brewing. Well, brewing has not managed to squeeze itself onto my active list so the bottles go to doushkasmum
who is brewing enough to run out of bottles. Yay, they get used, they are out of my house and I might get to drink some of the eventual contents.
I stayed home this morning swearing that I would actually paint something! Well I did but it wasn't bathroom proper yet. I painted the chest of 8 drawers instead. Frustrating, I keep finding more prep that needs doing before walls and architraves can be painted. So I applied more spackle this morning and then had to wait for it to dry before sanding etc. Hence the painting of the drawers, they could be done while the latest lot of spackle dried. Somewhat later and I now have sanded spackle , a door stripped of fittings and I think I can actually paint that bit!
I am being amused by the colour for the walls. They have been asking to be painted a soft pale pinky beige. Sort of an echo of the terracotta floor tiles but vastly paler. I went through the paint charts in the house and the winner was called..."Pantaloon"! how sweet. I swear I did not pick it for the name but as the best choice of all the pale pinky beige options, really. What is now amusing me further is that the drawers were not painted in Pantaloon colour, what a pity. The drawers are "Whisper white" **, chosen to match the new cupboards.
Now I have to decide whether I will go to catch the last hour of Irish or paint a door before going off to my visiting appointment this evening. I had meant to go to the full session of Irish today but the way I am feeling, 3hrs of solid exercise would be way too much.
*that I feel somewhat responsible for as it came out of my garden
**which name is amusing in itself given the regular contents of these drawers
