Now for day 5 progress report. Colin had to go into work this morning so Ian decided to wire and fit the chandelier for the landing. This was not an easy task as the light was to hang from the ceiling and down the centre of the stairwell. His ingenious idea was to incorporate two ladders, one to lean against the stair wall, and the other to go across from the landing banister rail and mate up with the first ladder.
Colin returned just as Ian had finished and promptly told his Dad the light wasn't in the centre!!! I wont tell you what Ian said! Anyway, Colin got changed out of his suit and tie and into his scruffs. Then he climbed the ladder to finish the emulsioning above the stairs.
Iwona was still painting walls and ceilings and I started on the final coat of the stairs. Then Colin promptly grabbed hold of the banister rail after I had specifically told him the paint was wet!!!! I had to rub it down again and re paint it! After that I gave up on the job and told him I would finish the stairs after he had left for work on Monday morning when there would be no danger of him sabotaging the paintwork again. Last but not least the garden wall is nearly finished.
