Nouja, hoe dan ook, broer gaat dus uit huis, maar voor het zo ver is moet er natuurlijk van alles gebeuren. Voornamelijk verven natuurlijk en hij heeft het grote geluk dat hij drie grote zussen heeft, elk zonder baan en meer dan genoeg tijd en alle drie goed in schilderen ook nog!!
Did I tell you that my big little brother will finally move out of our parents home??? Yesssss, it's really true!! It's about time, he will be turning 32 years old end of this month and our parents can finally put their last child out of their home. Finally get the house to their selfs for the first time in 37 years of marriage is about time.
Well, how ever, brother is getting his own home, but before he can move in there has to be a lot of work to done first. Mainly a lot of painting and isn't he the lucky guy with three older sisters, all without a job and enough time and all rather good in painting too!!?
Vandaag zijn we een eind gekomen en kunnen we volgende week beginnen met de muren. Als dan de kamer klaar is kunnen wij verder met de boven verdieping en kunnen de kerels beneden verder met de vloer leggen.
Wednesday and today we've been painting there with the three of us and it was rather nice too. Here and there it gives some troubles with three women in one hallway with all the trimmings and doors painted - we had to re-paint surtain parts multiple times again because of bumping in to the fresh paint - but it's fun to do I think. We came a long way today and can begin with the walls next week. When the living room is done we can go on up stairs and the guys can start laying the floor downstairs.

Maakt niks uit, komt wel weer. Ik heb de laatste maanden zo veel naaiwerk in opdracht gehad, dat ik daar ook best even een pauze van kan gebruiken. Zo gauw al het schilderwerk klaar is kan ik weinig meer helpen, dus dan kom ik wel weer aan mijn eigen dingen toe.
During the time he is not living there yet I will be going over there for several days in the week to work there and because of that I don't do too much here at home. The days I'm not there painting, I have to rest to give my body the time to recover. To go short; I'm not doing anything here....
Doesn't matter, it will change again too. I have done so much sewing the last couple of months, that I can use a bit of a brake from that. As soon as the painting is done I can't help with anything else I guess, so than my own things will get its turn again.
Fijn weekend allemaal!!
For now, we'll have a weekend first. The plans we had - going to a big quiltshow - I decided to not go this time. I'm still not completly recovered from last week and after painting a bit too long today my energy is drained, so I will have to take a break from everything this weekend. I'm getting rather wise at my old age...
Have a great weekend y'all!!
