Help! Let me out of here!
For the last few days, I have been trapped in our house. She who must be obeyed has been swanning off to work, leaving me to get on with decorating our hallway, stairs and landing. The colour is "natural calico" and of course the expensive "one coat" paint will require two coats, Thank heavens for Radio 4 which has helped me to endure this unwelcome incarceration. Five hours of decorating drudgery today and a full day tomorrow so that on Wednesday - when the weather forecast is encouraging, I shall once more have licence to plod for miles in the countryside.
Masking tape, sheets and plastic to cover carpets. On Saturday, I was horrified to see that the modern eco-friendly "Dulux" paint had seeped its way under the masking tape into rivulets around the edges of our landing window with its nineteen twenties bobbly glass. I had to get wire brushes to the mess. Two more hours of slave labour.
And when you are trapped like this, there's little you can blog about so instead I will just share more pictures from last week's lovely walk around Crane Moor, Silkstone Common and Thurgoland - it's the same day I saw the mining memorial in the woods... Click to enlarge
