Today, I have two main jobs I want to do, which are:
1) chop as much wood up as possible and 2) paint the kitchen ceiling.
Wood chopping – we have a load of rings up at the stone shed which is set back at the side of the field. The wood is from trees that Chris has cut down since we’ve been here. If you’ve ever looked at my husband’s videos on YouTube you can see the shed on there I think.
As today is forecast to be dry, I’ve figured I’d better get on with it. We keep a close eye on the weather now for these very reasons! We keep needing more wood daily, as we’re trying to just use the fire for heating at the moment (saving the oil) and it’s also often pouring down. So obviously when the weather’s good I need to get on with it. Where we chop the wood turns into a squishy mess too so you’re sliding about whilst you’re cutting it up. I might look for a piece of stone to put down. Chris has put one down at the entrance to the chickens because that was getting very gloopy and it’s great.
Kitchen – I’ve finally started preparing and painting the kitchen. I spent a lot of yesterday filling and did a little painting. So today (hopefully) I need to water down some white paint, cover the floor and paint the ceiling. I’ve been avoiding it as I really don’t like painting ceilings, but it needs doing. It’ll also splatter easily as I’m painting thin paint onto plaster, so I’m just going to try to get it done.
So instead of sitting here writing I’d better get on with it! I also have a three year old climbing on me and the laptop (which is quite nice :)) See ya!
