Made it

Filofax entry on the task list for the month of May:

Paint fences

Phew, I've made it. I kept writing in 'Paint fences' in the daily slots and finally, finally I've finished all of them. No more until next year. While painting these last few I've had a lot of practice at squats whilst dipping my brush in the paint bucket on the ground and reaching up to paint the top of the fences. It's a good job no-one was watching me.

Low down I was on my hunkers, peasant style squatting.

I also painted myself, while I was at it!



  1. Lots of good exercise then Mum. I certainly don't get as much exercise as I should so when cleaning I try and bend knees.stretch and touch my toes as much as possible. Sr P looks on a little baffled sometimee! :-)

    keep well

  2. Reminds me of the Forth Bridge ! x

  3. Wow, what a job! So glad it's behind you now!

  4. I always end up with spotty specs!

  5. Well done Mum! Lovely day for it.

  6. We've literally just ordered our new fences to come Thursday. So then it'll be me turning myself and the garden blue !

  7. You're definitely my style of painter.

  8. When I moved in here I decided on hedges instead of fence panels. The thought of having to paint them put me off. Mind you, I get plenty of exercise now with a pair of shears and a step ladder.


Thank you for your comments. it's always exciting reading them.
