At last

The painter Jack packed his trestles, paint brushes and cover sheets and headed off to his next job. I received a  gift of fresh grown broccoli and red cabbage grown by his wife. Each day we have shared a fresh brewed coffee made when he arrived, sitting by the fire to have a chat but with the coffee drunk  Jack had to venture out into the freezing cold mornings to start the painting.

Still no frosts but the chilling wind made the dog walking adventures postponed until after 10am.

So I have changed the dull brown around the windows to a colour called “dune” which against the white house and green screens visually looks like a soft grey. Still brown under the eaves. Will save painting that for next year.

The room is almost there. Just a few finishing touches and a few days to clear the paint smell and we are ready to start the new venture.
