Saturday Summary

We were wide awake at 7:30 this morning, so we got to Homebase and back and had the first coat of paint on the bathroom by about 10am. It looks pretty good actually.

We’d planned a ride to Greenwich with Mikey but he cried off when I called him so Brett and I went on our own. It was a very pleasant little run. We lunched at Tae Won Mein and then lazed a bit at Costas before heading back.

En route I got called by both Rosie and John W wanting to call by when we got home. Rosie was just coming to hang out. John & Rich were returning my tripod and wanting hi-res copies of the photographs I took at their wedding. We hadn’t had much time with them since before the wedding so it was a good chance to catch up.

After they left though, it was back to the bathroom for touching-up the pale patches and removing the masking tape. There’s a bit more cleaning and tidying of edges to do before it’s totally finished, but even now it looks better than it did with the yellowy magnolia. It’s kind of spurred us on to think about doing the lounge too.

Going to have a quiet evening tonight, maybe see a movie. Tomorrow we had an invite to Ruth’s birthday but ultimately decided to pass so we may do another bike ride instead since today was quite enjoyable. We have Martin K’s birthday party in the evening too. Could be a busy day.
