My friend is a post-office worker, so she had to be home by 9pm. This left me with an evening free. I know. Some people might go to bed. Not me. I started the DIY.
One of my kitchen lights is not working. That was soon down, replaced temporarily by a hanging pendant bulb on a wire sort of a thing. Then there was the bit of wood above my kitchen door which I've been fantasising about replacing with a proper architrave. Architrave applied! Then there was the bit of architrave with a gap in. Bit of architrave of same basic style was applied to the gap with filler. Job done.
There was the awful gap in the paintwork on the door frame where the "door stop" was replaced. I had considered sanding. In the end, I spent an hour or so removing the paint with a paint stripper. That wasn't bad, considering I didn't have a suitable scraper.
Then the challenge. Could I maybe sand all the woodwork in the kitchen that needs painting? Could I? Well, I'll have a go. Oh, yes I could... ok. I know it's late, but I bet my housemate, who left the room at about 9.30pm, would be really impressed in the morning if all the woodwork in the kitchen were primed. I'll just...
At 2.30am, I'd finished my marathon DIY session. I can't actually stop working at the moment. I'm quite productive too. I quite like that.
