I was looking for an image to illustrate what i’ve been doing for the last 2 days.
Instead of kneeling in mud weeding flower beds, Arjen, my boss, asked if i’d help him decorate a room in his house.
All the images I found of ‘steaming wallpaper’ were pretty boring, but there were plenty of images of wallpaper, and I found myself reading a blog by a guy who designs wallpaper (for computers and cell-phones).
Before I knew it, I had blog-hopped to loads of other sites using the links on them.
Anyway, all the steaming and scraping is now done thank goodness, any of you who have had to remove wallpaper from a ceiling with one of those machines will know how much fun it is! Today we start filling and painting………now I wonder what obscure site I can link to if I put THAT into Google Image search………..ooh look!
Last week Arjen decided we needed help to get on top of our weed problem, i’m sure that i’ll find a lost WWOOF volunteer from last year in the undergrowth one of these days!
So we drafted in one of the BD (BioDynamics) students to help us.
It was while in conversation with ‘ex-rock star’ Claire that she said to me “so you’re a geeky gardener really then?”, hence the tagline on my title above.
