    Paint paint paint. *sigh*
    Spare bedroom and airing cupboard doors are now a Strawberry/raspberry red with a deep yellow/gold frame. It looks better than it sounds! Dulux names are Red stallion 3
    and Golden bark 4.

    And I've achieved the frictionless rippling glass mirror finish, so after tomorrows second coat it'll be super.

    Can't add images, so you'll have to google it I'm afraid. Bugger!

    There's a homeless who I've seen outside Starbucks a few times. I don't usually carry shrapnel (I go food shopping and use a card that debits from the account that has my wages - no coins carried) but I knew there were three coins amounting to a whopping 8p in a tub at home, in a drawer. I also knew that there was a bag of very nice wrapped flapjack slices from Friday, by my bedroom door.
    After shopping, I returned home, dumped my food on the bed and collected two flapjacks and 8p, then went back to the guy and gave them to him.

    He was thankful, which pleased me. Doesn't take much to say thanks (unless you can't speak!).

    The other day I gave a flapjack to a homeless outside Waitrose and he didn't even make eye contact or thank me..

    I have discovered something even more exciting than watching paint dry!
    I know it's difficult to conceive, but it's true.

    I'm waiting for some Hammerite Metal Paint: Hammered Copper to be delivered, and as it should have arrived Sat 21st July the excitement is palpable.

    Well, sort of.

    I've got an old metal chest, H52 W72 D51 Cm, and it'll look great, I hope, when it's done.

    My chest.
    With the copper paint outside and some eye-popping yellow inside.
    Had to do it late last night and 07:00 this morning to avoid the heat.
    Great for stashing junk out of sight.

    And there's even a lion to guard it too.

    Glad you like it.
    It hasn't been touched for over 40 years, so it was due a spruce up.

    I mowed the 'lawn' today.
    Well, sort of. The job consisted of me aiming at the patches of weeds that continue to grow, and demolishing them.

    A side effect of this was the mower stirring up all the dead grass and crap between the patches, so I moved around the yard in my very own private dust storm.
    Not super at all!

    Making hay while the sun shines.

    More sanding & varnishing, this time a pair of old speaker cabinets got done.
    It's one of those jobs that you know that you really ought to do but never quite get around to doing.

    So I had a 'if not now, when?' day.
