The company I keep on cold Saturday nights.

For the pass month I have been slowly trying to strip back all paint from the front porch.  As I work full-time I try to do a little at night.  It’s an incredibly BORING job but today I finished the walls.  I’ve just got to work on the rest of the timber trims.  THEN it all needs sanding.

but…

Last night I had company while I worked. This possum is a new visitor. It wasn’t bothered by the noise of the heat gun, which sounds like a hair dryer.  Maybe it was enjoying the warmth that the heat gun produces.  It was a little cold last night.old pearly jenkins

A nice suprise after a long day at work.

What a wonderful surprise to find these waiting for me when I arrived home from work yesterday afternoon.  I’ve had a quick look but I’ll sit down with a ‘cuppa’ over the weekend sometime and have a good read.

I did something kind of odd last night that I want to share.  I got into bed and started feeling around for the switch for the electric blanket down the side of the mattress.  The thing is … we haven’t had an electric blanket on the bed EVER and its still  way too hot here to even think about using one.  I’m  thinking  I was just incredibly tired.  Either that or I’m  starting to lose my marbles.

Bring on the weekend!!! (of housework, grocery shopping, sanding and painting.. oh and parenting)
