I also have to put some filler on the roof. It needs to look a bit wonky, or undulating as it says in the instructions.
I just got some cheap filler, £1.50! You don't need the posh stuff. The tricky part was getting the consistency right, not making it too wet. I added the water gradually, just till it spread a little more easily onto the walls.
I used a knife, it was just easier than the palette knife, or the plastic spreader. The paint will pick out the tatty nature of the bricks. It has been very fiddly painting the windows for the cottage, they are smaller than those on Teacup Cottage.
He was also after my dinner last night! I bought one of those frozen meals, a roast beef dinner. Well nothing ventured... but for £2 it was delicious. But Harvey could clearly smell the meat. No, he didn't get any, I've never fed any cat from my plate, it is a bad habit. I'll sometimes leave some meat for him, but I put it in his bowl. I don't want him to get the idea that he can scrounge from me.
A nothing day in terms of going anywhere, back has been really sore these last few days. I have been told that I have a curve in my spine, and not were it is supposed to be. This means I'm prone to sciatica, and boy do I know it. Even just getting out of the car can do it. I also wanted to get an early start on the cottage so that the filler would be dry.
Well all for now, I should finish the back of the cottage tomorrow, still have one more side to cover with filler. It is the fiddly side with the windows. Hope you're all enjoying this last bit of summer!
