stripping (paint)

Yes I am still here! We have had a busy weekend, combining christmas shopping with lots of diy. We are trying to get some messy jobs done so that we can start to clean and tidy for christmas, so I spent lots of hours stripping paint from woodwork while Stuart ripped down part of a wall and did lots of plastering. Here is part of one of the door frames I was working on, and the second picture shows the huge blister I managed to get by burning myself. A really hot bit of paint decided to weld itself to me and I couldn't get it off. Ouch. But we have managed to get a lot done, and I even fitted in a trip to the post office on saturday too. : )
