I'm starting to get into "soon vacation" mode. As of next Friday I'll have four weeks off! Martin and Wille will be going back to Greece for ten days on the 23rd to go island hopping. Those two really need their yearly under water fix. I on the other hand will do a multitude of things.
I've started to compile my to-do list and if you check back later on in summer hopefully a lot will be accomplished. I'll be crossing stuff out as I go along and hopefully I can rope Martin in to do some of it too.

Paint in between kitchen window panes

There are also the left overs from my list back in August and hopefully some of these will get done too. Some of them are quite big jobs which is why I haven't gotten to them yet, I guess. They require either money, time and/or materials. At the moment I'm short on all…
Repaint (or tile!) downstairs bathroom ceiling
Finish the kitty flap surround on outside of back door
Dig for better drainage away from gutter at back of house
Lay underfloor heating in upstairs bathroom
Lay new tile floor in upstairs bathroom
Add new wooden trim in upstairs bathroom
Repaint inside of garage doors and trim + inside of windows
Gravel in front of garage
Repaint dining room table
Add new top to shoe cubbies and repaint unit
Lots of painting as you can see… The trouble with that is that painting is never just painting. If it were I'd be done already! It's all the prep work that needs to be done first and which is so time consuming and messy.
Also with Mini and Bonus around precautions need to be made so they won't step into the paint. My biggest worry is how do the kitchen wood work, there's no door to the kitchen… Bonus already has white paws and some other white features but do you think Mini will look good in white?
