I have been to Barley-land today and ended up staying longer than intended as my colleague's company car got a flat tyre...fortunately we found it after our last meeting! I changed the wheel but with her planning more road trips tomorrow and fri, she needed a new one. Glad I only noticed the tyres after we got there as there were bald!!

Bald tyres!!!  Thats pretty poor on a company car 

I have done allsorts but pleased to report it stayed dry whilst I went out with my boy

The plumber has been fettling around in the loft and I have hoovered

Obama seems a lot more personable to me than Romney, thats what I shall base my virtual voting on for now

My colleague is a bit of a numpty with cars and assumed her tyres get changed every time the car is serviced so has never checked them! She didn't get much sympathy from me and knows a bit more about car maintenance now

She wanted to play shoot, shag, marry on the way back but with names of our male colleagues *shudder* I really wanted to shoot her by the time we got back.

i want to go to bed but have started stripping all the layers of paint off the fireplace...i wish i had just spray painted it brown............i feel this is not going to end well........and the fumes are going to send me over the edge no doubt

With all this energy, I bet she's a great shag.

Was that a 'think it, don't say it' moment?

and i'm pissed off with this foreplace..........the nitrostuff is slowly taking the paint layers away but not really working on the bottom original black layer...so not sure what that is............

so the last couple of hours have been for nothing.......

i think i'm going to have to give up............paint a gloss layer back on the bits ihave stripped and then get a spray can and try and spray it some kind of suitable colour

Seren - is it a proper old fashioned black fireplace? If so, google how to restore it. They're worth a fortune btw.

Whatever stuff you are using Seren as far as I am aware you need to lather it on and let it stay on if you have numerous coats of it

5 hrs to go and I can head homewards ....

its the horrible toxic stuff that you musts't keep naked flames near........it has managed to blister and bubble all the coasts off apart from the bottom on..........at the rate it has had to go on it will cost me a fortune to do it all and i will still have the black paint at the bottom.they must have laquered it or something.

i hate it now as I'm running out of time..............

got to do and varnish all the banisters etc that i sanded the other day.............and hopefully apart from the fireplace and recleaning we will be ready to go for the carpets monday.....................

Morning all,

if it's proper fireplace blacking Seren then I think it will be graphite based and I haven't a clue what would get that off.

Mouse is allowed not to go swimming at some point this week as I managed all on my own last night.  Was going tolerably well until I had to do a Hungarian (25 fly, 50 back, 100 breast, 200 free and down again).  My interpretation was more thrash about a bit for 25m, 50 back, and then a combination of breast and free to prevent myself being lapped.
