August has arrived and with it the delicious task of decorating. Eight years ago, when we fitted out our boat, we covered every single knot in the pine cladding with knotting solution before painting everywhere white. We have repainted at least twice, but the knots are now rampant in their leeching and our home looks like it is suffering a dose of chicken pox. This month, with hubby’s diary mostly empty and me choosing to work fewer hours, we will be turning our walls off-white. After a good scrub, and painting the annoying knots with a stain block, the walls will be going calico, hessian, cotton and other shades of beige. This will necessitate us living between piles of books, stacked furniture, and other stuff moved to facilitate access to the surfaces in need of beautification. Living conditions will be more cluttered and cramped than usual, access to a tabletop or seat to sit on is a dream away. Hence I am not even going to attempt to write until things return to normal and the paintbrushes have been put away. Blog reading will also be even more sporadic than usual, for which I apologise.

Have a great summer and enjoy all you might be getting up to. See you in the autumn.
