I had plastered my wall two weeks ago and the wall wasn't painted yet! Not fully, anyway. The week after I had only managed one coat. It needs two! And the woodwork hadn't had any paint at all (except the cupboard door). But then another weekend appeared. And I gave that wall a second coat! And when that was on, I could take off the masking tape that protected the woodwork. Next step: said woodwork! I think the frame of the cupboard needs a base coat first. But the first thing I did was the hatch to the loft. I want that to be sorted before it gets even colder! Painting it, after all, is best done when it's not in position, and that means a big hole in the insulation. I will need several weekends more to finish this, but some progress has again been made!
This blog started as a tool to keep my Dutch friends informed on my whereabouts when I moved abroad. It quickly also became an external memory for my own use. It largely failed as a stage for discussions on whatever is worth discussing. And it has become a way of sharing my scientific knowledge with a lay audience. And who knows, it could become even more! And whatever it is you are looking for among all this: welcome.
