LOTS OF TEACHING UNDERTAKEN THIS WEEK
PAINTING IS WELL UNDER WAY NOW
I’ve done more teaching this week than I have since the new term started, which is good. This coincided with my decision to stop procrastinating and get on with the decorating, which was not perhaps the best plan, but it made me make the most of my time.
I’m over halfway with the walls of the room I’m painting, and I’m hoping to get them finished today. I’m having to do three coats of paint, not the two that I hoped to get away with. I went to buy some more paint this morning, and thought I’d get a 5 litre pot. I could find 5 litre pots of almost every other warm neutral shade, but not Buttermilk. I asked at Customer Services and it turns out that they don’t make Buttermilk in the large size pot. Why ever not?? Do they think that people who choose Buttermilk won’t need it in such large quantities as the people who choose other shades? I have emailed the company and asked what their logic behind that is. So, I had to buy two 2.5 litre pots which cost me £7 more than if I had been able to get the 5 litre one. I was Mrs Irritated yesterday morning as I left the store.
