The painting day has now come to an end as indicated by a little tell tale sign. It is still light enough to paint, there is still painting to do and I am not yet so tired as to start making silly mistakes, there is another more subtle clue that the day has ended. When I have covered myself in enough paint that I am leaving marks of one colour on surfaces whilst painting a different colour then its time to quit for the day.
I am seeing some progress in project paint and that, coupled with concerns about getting the deep clean done, is keeping me motivated. As predicted (wasn’t ever really a question) locking me down has not broken the workaholic in me and I am still managing 12 hour days albeit with some additional tea breaks.
I had to shoot to the shop today and all this crazy hopscotch is not helping me. I had to purchase three items, all of which were in the store and in my mind. By the time I had completed the shuffle pass twice and rolled a 6 to get to the fridges I found myself at the new snakes and ladders for the till. Feeling like I had scored some victory to get to this level I carried on, completed the slalom and left with two of the three items!
Of course in the new world you can’t go back to the shop for that item can you? Its embarrassing apart from anything else. You go out for your essential trip to the store, play the game and just deal with what you bring back, that’s just how it is. Now has anyone got a recipe for butter and mustard?
It would appear that Terry duck’s sniggering was not an indication of responsibility for the arrival of Gav duck. It was probably still aimed at sausage ducks enforced abstinence although, judging by the rocking on the bar stool, I think the abstinence is not being fully complied with.
Responsibility for Gav duck has been claimed by Tiggy and Pete who felt that he would add something to the menagerie which he certainly has done. Not only is Gav duck a great addition but he has opened up the world of duckshop a previously unknown emporium of drinking buddies so thanks guys.
