It’s been 10 days since my last post and for me that is a long time between posts. While I’ve been somewhat slack with my blog posts I have been keeping myself busy around the house. You may remember my post Ah, If Only All I Had To Do Was Blog where I wrote about all the work I was doing on my daughters room, well since then I’ve been devoting my time to renovating my son’s room.
Some of you may be wondering why I can’t do that and my blogging duties and normally you would be right in thinking that but then you don’t know the way I like to work. When I start a major project I devote all my time to it. I will work from the morning until 8 in the evening and I rarely stop for lunch. As long as everything is going the way it should be I’m pretty happy with this type of regime. That is until the wife came in with a venetian blind she wanted me to install.
I have to admit I was pretty pissed off, not because I now had to install the blind but because she told me about it after I had completed painting the room. Now I had to remove all the curtain fittings which meant I had to fill in 12 holes and finish off by retouching the paint. If only she had told me before I painted the room it would have been so much easier.
Having the right tools, as I had mentioned in the previous post, sure makes any job so much easier and knowing I had a lot of cutting to do I bought myself a Miter SawHardware) without which it would have taken me a lot longer and the job wouldn’t have turned out as good. The miter saw was especially good for getting perfect corner cuts on the quarter round timber.
Oh, apart from not having enough time to blog I also don’t have enough time to shave, much to my wife’s and daughters disgust.
The wife’s even amazed that I uploaded this photo to flickr saying the least I could do was smile. Truth be told, I was too damn tired to smile. :tongue_rolleye_ee:
