Decorating: gives so much pleasure but causes so much pain!

I am re-decorating the hall. It is the first room in the house I decorated, purely to get some colour in the house after 5 months of living with magnolia rooms when we moved in. However, after 4 years, it is looking rather tired and the colour is a bit, well not quite gaudy, but it doesn’t match with the ‘pallet’ of the rest of the house. (I sound far more artistic that I actually am there!). However, the hallway has the biggest amount of wall space to paint, so I am using up two days of my annual leave from last year to get it done.

Day 1 has gone well – I got the ceiling done before lunch (albeit a late lunch!) and then I got about 50% of the upstairs walls done. Tomorrow I have the ‘big’ wall (stairs to ceiling) and the downstairs to do. But, I won’t lie, I am shattered! I had forgotten how tiring decorating was and I think this is more so because I have to keep going up-and-down the stairs and back-and-forth along the landing. According to some research I have done, you burn approx. 160 kcal per hour when decorating – I did 8 hours of painting today (excluding breaks), so I don’t feel too guilty about not training! It also explains why I even thinking about what to write here is hurting my brain!

So I shall end this rather dull blog and zone out to ‘Location Location Location’ – that shouldn’t require any brain power and I might get some decorating design tips to boot!
