Time For A Haircut

When I woke up yesterday I noticed that my hair was a mess. And when my hair is a mess there is nothing that can be done to save it. Definitely time for it to be cut off as that tends to get rid of the problem of bad hair. At least for 2-3 months.

The Real Painting Has Begun

Last night I put some real paint on the ceiling in the living room. Painting isn't one of the most fun jobs around the house but it reminded me of when Miky and I lived in our Mt Lawley flat. When Yu-Jin was very little we waited for him to go to bed then we covered all of the furniture in one particular area and painted that room. For a few nights in a row we were up until midnight and felt quite buggered afterwards. It was very rewarding work though as our paint job came up very nicely. I let her choose the colours though - I'm not that stupid.

The day after we sold it I popped back to ask the new owner if she could send any mail on and gave her our new address. To my shock she had lots of friends over and they were painted the walls green and purple. All our lovely work was gone.

I know as soon as the ceiling is finished it will be time to paint all of the walls in the house. I'm not that stupid. But I'm stupid enough to be the one to do it.

Which is better, to renovate when you are about to leave the house, or to renovate to enjoy enjoy a better house?

I am debating with myself, do I renovate my roof now, so I can enjoy a good roof, or I renovate later just to make it more presentable to potential buyers.

You'll find that over the years you will renovate as your wife picks fault with the house and by the time you are finished she will want to move. At least that is my experience.

Not that I blame the wife. I'm glad we moved out when we did.

Do what you need to to make it liveable and comfortable.

Being such a Frugal Bastard, you should be living closer to your sister. She would give you a No2 for nowt. She cut Pa's hair last week. Damn good job, too.
She does all he man's haircuts.

green and purple walls, hmm.

Ma - Are you referring to He-man and the Masters of the Universe?

I could say that living closer to my sister for a free haircut is a high price to pay. I could, but I won't. I promise, I won't. I won't even think that. Oh, damn. Too late.

Kill me now.

Smarty! It was a typo. It was meant to be men's hair cuts.
