We are decorating. I have to say “We” because Brian has been telling folk “he” is decorating. What he actually does quite well is follow instructions LOL.
This morning I finished painting the woodwork and tomorrow I’ll be ready to start wallpapering.
My hands are telling me this will definitely be the last time “we” do our own decorating. Unfortunately I find it difficult to stop and rest up when I should especially when there are things that need doing because as everyone knows, “if you want a job doing right, do it yourself” but don’t you just love being able to stand back and say “I did that,” and it’s pleasing also to be the only one who knows where the faults are. - oh yes there will be some for contrary to popular belief I am not perfect but I do think if a job is worth doing it’s worth putting an effort into getting it right. That was a problem when I was a production supervisor…my expectations were somewhat higher than everyone else’s which led to frictions. I guess if I’m guilty of anything it’s pride, so gowon shoot me
If it appears I’m not around much it’s because I’m spending more and more time on Facebook. It’s so comfortable and with more and more of my online pals also there I am still able to keep up to date on their comings and goings. Oh alright then I admit it, I’m hooked on Mafia Wars and play it once or twice a day until my energy is exstinguished LOL, harmless fun surely?
Apparently last October was the coldest NZ has experienced since the 1940‘s. Thank goodness it’s over; I wonder though perhaps we should start getting used to it?
A couple weeks ago Brian and I began watching a Korean drama “Jewel in the Palace.” Unfortunately we missed the first two episodes but via the wonders of the internet caught up on the story line which is loosely based on fact.
Set in the 15th and 16th centuries it’s about a woman who becomes Koreas first female Royal Physician. She experiences much hardship and strife but in the end perseverance wins out.
The shrillness of the language takes some getting used to and although there are subtitles I think much is lost in the translation because it‘s obvious by the body language there is humour.
I am not even going to try and remember the names of the characters believe me they are not Bruce or Lee because of this I found it hard to recognise the grown up versions of each female character at first as they start off as 7 year olds then suddenly in episode 4 or 5 they are teenagers and portrayed by older actresses. Could be an interesting ride ( 54 episodes.)
I’ve managed to take time out from decorating to plant up a vegetable garden with cabbages, cauli, carrots, spring onion, tomato, cucumber, and lettuce. Oh there’s also potatoes (Brians effort) and broad and runner beans, the former are being harvested as I speak but the latter have yet to show. Better walk about with the hose so catchya later and I hope you all have a wonderful weekend, bye for now.
