The last few weeks I have been busy with painting and decorating,after taking much advise and quotations form various decoraters I came to the conclusion that those who I liked were way too expensive to recruit and those that were cheaper would not do the job to my satisfaction.So I decided to give up all my spare time and do the decorating my self of course with some help from my partner.
At the moment I am currently working on the bedroom, the preparation all done the walls are ready for painting we went off to the DIY shop . Armed with a shopping list of tools we needed and to choose the paint of course.
Now you may ask, well whats the problem you are only buying paint, ahem !! its was not as easy as that. Just as women can spend endless hours walking from department to department just gazing at the clothes, shoes and handbags, men do the same in DIY shops.To think that we would be in and out of the shop in less than an hour was a mistake. My partner dragged me around each and every isle , be it plumbling, lightening or electrics not forgetting the power tools. Here we spent ages looking at all the new gadgets that would make a DIY enthusiasts life simple or look very impressive in the garage!!!It took me almost an hour to drag him away from the power tools ,loosing him on a few occasions on the way to the checkout. I certainly know what it feels like now that the shoe was on the other foot.In future maybe I will be more sympathetic towards his moaning when I drag him shopping with me! 🙂
We still havn’t decided on the paint colour but have picked some sample pots to check out at home.My only worry now is dare I take him back there to make the final purchase???lolz 🙂
