We last painted the front of the house, about ten years ago and it has been looking rather shabby of late.
Mrs M also wanted to change the colour: grey is the new magnolia.
First coat was done this morning and a second coat tomorrow. We have to get it done by midday, because that’s when the sun works it’s way round to the front and the temperature becomes unbearable to work in. And my aluminium ladders become unbearably hot to stand on, I discovered today.
I’ve really got a lot on, tomorrow, so I’ll probably have to start about 7am.
Michelangelo had it so much easier!
