Being up a ladder is not that much fun! ( image )
I spent a good 5 hrs up a ladder ( or, alternately, squatting on the pavers ) painting our front verandah area. I must have looked gorgeous, perched precariously up a ladder, wearing on of my husband's old work singlets and a pair of yoga tights! And I do mean 'perched precariously ' - the rungs on the ladder were pretty narrow so the only way I could feel balanced was to have one foot either side of the top..... Which meant I had to squat down and reach for my pot of paint every time I needed more paint on my brush. On the upside, I probably did like a bazillion squats and had to engage my thigh and abdominal muscles to keep steady, so I'm going to have buns and abs of steel by the time I'm done!
With my sister volunteering to watch Tully tomorrow, I should be able to get my painting finished. And then I can start tidying up inside ( again.... ), the deep cleaning, and get busy 'dressing ' the rooms in preparation for having the duplex valued and, ultimately, sold!
So - are you hands on? Are you willing to risk life and limb up a dodgy ladder in order to get your house ready for sale? Or am I the only mad one around here?
Tuesday again - find this post at EssentiallyJess for IBOT !
