soon you fall prey to the demon addiction of DIY :)
I myself succumbed last night, staying up all night to try and finish, unsucessfully, the bathroom floor then being somewhat distracted by the temptation the use the steam powered wallpaper stripper I bought from Bruce 8 years ago. I stripped all the hallway and repainted it. Then I cut the grass and tidied the rest of the house like it's never been tidied before. A quick bath and then 'drrrring' the doorbell rings, the surveyor has arrived. He pokes around for half an hour and buggers off.
Hopefully they'll now give me some money so I can fix the outside of the house.
However , now I can't get the smell of paint out of my nostrils :)
right , I'm off for a cycle ride to Woking to get some garden sacks, towpath exercise time , excellent.
PS Nice pics..
