This sums up my afternoon labouriously spent with a paintbrush in hand. It is while I paint that I wonder why it is that we all, and I am sure I am not alone here, live in our houses without doing all those finishing touches and as soon as you decide to sell, well! - I have to paint everything in sight and tidy up like a maniac. It hasn't bothered me all this time but suddenly now that some suited chap with a clipboard is going to stamp a sum on our humble abode I find myself preparing like is a royal visit! People are funny, or just me!
