I had really become almost totally immersed in Diamond Geezers, even to the extent of, well, not boredom exactly, but I needed a break from it. So, by way of light relief over the weekend, I cut the wood to size for the replacement gate from France (it will be taken over as a flat-pack and put together over there) and primed as much as I could before I ran out of primer. That happened yesterday morning and I could have driven to our DIY store to buy more, but I try not to do any shopping on a Sunday as a matter of principle. So I painted the two garden gates, and this morning I put another coat of stain on the front door - and not before time. It was becoming embarrassing answering the door as it had got into such a bad state. The trouble is, we don't actually use the front door ourselves, so we rarely see what it looks like.
Light relief? Huh, I'll be glad to get back to Diamond Geezers.
