Short DIY update. Painted one wall of the living room "DH Red". So 2/3rds of the way there now.
Meanwhile, over in the spare room, we're pretty much done. Gloss applied, radiator painted, walls finished and the fiddly join between the ceiling/walls done to the best of our ability. So don't look up.
Outside, I've painted the veranda, blueish.
Next week, the plumber visits on Thursday and we replace the wooden steps at the weekend. Watch this space!
