Bank Holiday weekend. Some slapdash and unenthusiastic DIY has been done. A dozen useful jobs out of the way, couple of hundred left to do. I still managed to find a few hours to paint, and skivved off the work I should have been finishing to mess around with some little boards I bought ages ago. First trying out some paint effects I saw on YouTube. Chucking surgical spirit around on the dining room table was wildly unpopular, it turned out, and I had to pack up halfway through so we could eat dinner. Then painting on top with primary colours, no planning or sketches or reference, just playing about. A relief from the weeks of careful, meticulous work I’ve just finished, some of it interesting but more useful for the doing than for the results. Remembering it’s meant to be fun.
