    I've been decorating ... but I've reached that go slow stage where having failed to meet my own imposed deadline, it drags on - mainly painting a sash window - first time of doing so and I suspect I don't know the right way to do it. Look at it this way ... in a weeks time you will stand back and think how shiny and new it looks!

    I've just painted the stair walls on a special platform step-ladder (my real ladder left home when I was a kid.)

    Two coats of white emulsion, a new plastic ceiling light pendant and white paper shade and it looks good if I say so myself, but I'm sweating like a paedophile on a bouncy castle.
