Let the job winding down really begin.

Today I  have ONE shift in the morning, then NOTHING until next Friday!   Bliss.  

I'm gunna get so much done around here in that time.

Last night, while Stew cooked dinner I went into the spare bedroom and put the first coat of paint on the walls.

 ABOVE:  Lacy kept texting me, so I sent her this photo saying "I'm painting... go away now".  lol
She did.   (have ya seen me in my glasses much?  I usually only wear them to drive, watch TV, work on the computer and so on)

Anyway....  It took me about 2 hours to do the first coat.

ABOVE:  This photo was taken last night... I'm dying to see what it looks like this morning.  I need to get outta bed though, and its bloody cold as ... well...  you know what.

I have a feeling it's going to need a second coat.  If it does, I will get that done when I get home from work.  

And that's me for now... I'm looking forward to getting this shift over with, it's a hard slog one.


3.01 pm:  And that's another one done and dusted... it's always a hard slog on Sundays.  So much more to do, and less time to do it in.  Glad that was my last Sunday!

Three more shifts to go... I'm rather excited *smiles*
My back was killing me when I got home.  

Stew took me to Podium Cafe, out at Lake Karapiro for lunch.  We ended up just having some chips and a piece of cake!

I simply wasn't hungry.  I slept really badly last night, and even woke in the wee hours with a awful headache... so took some panadol.  

Now, instead of painting, I'm going to take a nap.  I'm so tired.

And it's a really wet, dark and gloomy day... perfect nap weather as far as I'm concerned.

It's done!  The second coat of paint is on the spare bedroom walls.... now tomorrow I can put a few things in there. 

And I'm now done for the day.  It's been a good day really.  I'm now going to just chill out for a couple of hours before going to bed.  Catch ya tomorrow.
