one of the jobs that been getting me down is the kitchen and bathroom windows that needed painting not been done last two years so were green and flakeing. but washed, rubbed, filled and painted them this morning now have bathed taken pain meds and sat with feet up and big smile on my face might need another coat but look so much better than they did had to use steps for kitchen window as to high for me to reach from stool hip and ankle moaning a bit but well worth it and why does holding paint brush cause middle finger to hurt tut tut :grin::smile::grin::grin: val

    Well done val..I tackled the windows the other day. Outside was full of cobwebs & the windows were disgusting. Not been upto doing these jobs for a long time. I managed to wash them all down but i cant do the inside kitchen window..OH will have to do that for me.

    I hope your feeling so proud of doing it all & you deserve to put your feet up & smile.
    Take care, debs

    Well done on doing what you achieved. I am afraid that I wont be the one coming round to help. I get dizzy sitting on the floor so up a ladder would be no good.
