Day 174

Came out of office yesterday afternoon and most surprised to see tradesman upstairs in frightful attire, positively covered in paint spots and swearing liberally.  Mrs Payne said with excitement decorating would be done awfully quickly, chap was terribly professional!

Mrs Payne showed decorator paint and wallpaper, at which chap queried with hint of nausea as to what was going where.  Following quite some moments of thought, Mrs Payne said with pleasure,
"Can I have half and half?".
Decorator and I stepped in rather quickly, said this possibly not wisest of choices, why did she not consider feature wall with wallpaper, and paint rest?  Mrs Payne most displeased with alternative, after some awfully serious looking thought, said with renewed excitement,
"I say!  I'd like three feature walls!".

Estimation of job ensued, and followed quite some discourse as to "only an idiot" would put wood chip on the wall, and could he have a cup of tea, was parched.  Went back to work in much annoyance, as heard Mrs Payne exclaiming,
"Oh yes, super glue!".
