The Painters and Decorators are in!

A wise old woman once said, in the not too distant past,..."When painting your bedroom or anywhere else, concentrate on the job in hand.....and keep the cats out!"

Was her advice heeded?

Ack....Nah! No chance.

We now have some exotically multi coloured mogs.

LooLoo is now the possessor of blue-tipped whiskers, Popeye has a lavender coloured back end, Honey Pot has just sashayed down the hall with the latest in lavender moustaches and Tinkerbelle? Ah...could only happen to Tinks. Now sporting a lemon tail:o) Doesn't quite match her brindle colouring. If I'd been her, I would have chosen the Burnt Paprika!! Interior design is not for her:o)

So, must now pretend to stroke and pet my little by one, so I can relieve them of thier Dulux emulsions:o)

Next time, lock puddy tats AWAY...far, far away from any decorating! Ignore any looks of "We only want to help".

Lesson learned. Sigh......

So , yes...we have been decorating.

Junior is a vision in lavender and sky blue:o) is her newly painted bedroom. She got well and truly "stuck in". Bless...and is and should be, proud of her efforts:o) She painted along to her one and only tape that was in the bedroom and knows all the Bryan Adams tunes pretty well:o) lol She's now in the throes of making a huge collage on canvas for her newly painted walls.

I have de-tangoed the upper hallway from the vile orange that was to a more serene cornmeal yellow. Normally, painting has a relaxing effect for me but this Badman crap has just annoyed me so much. Arghhh! He just strikes me as one sad plonker. Go to Grit's blog for details. She rages about it far more thoroughly and eloquently, or Gill's at Sometimes it's Peaceful. There's also a link to Blogdial on Grit's post. Some of the Select Committee submissions make juicy reading, proving what a farce this all is. Read Tech's.

I have to go and catch a cat or two:o)
