Be finished on the flats on Monday whoo! No wait maybe Tuesday, forgot the electrician did his job twice :rolleyes: and there’s holes everywhere that I’ve already plastered :llorando:

I get so excited when I’m finishing a job and then remember I’ve got to start another.... boo. Got standard room skims for a bit and then an extension. Then I’m taking a break and sinking into the workshop

I'm actually going to work!
A bit of coving and render repair tomorrow and Tuesday and then maybe start tacking and sticking a three storey extension we've got.
I'm going to miss the lake:cry:

The memory’s this brings back, honestly reading this gave me that horrible feeling in my stomach that I used to get all the time when under pressure.
