Yeah, my car needs washed. Pretty drastically.

I've taken this week off work, an action which I am all but certain will have dire consequences when I get back. I don't think my boss is going to be too happy with me about that, but I'll deal with that when I get there. So whilst sorting things out, or trying to, I'd also intended to do some decorating. I stripped the wallpaper in my hall last November, so I figure it's about time I actually finished it, only... I can't find my pasting brush or the smoothing brushes or any of the other stuff I need to put wallpaper up, so my pasting table is currently taking up most of the space in the hall, while I try to figure out where all the supplies actually might be...

Bosses are not there to be happy. That's your job!

Wallpapering... ooo... I've never been brave enough to try that. Seems too messy. What pattern/colour you gonna use?

I'm putting up a plain texture wallpaper thing - not woodchip - to try to mask the rough plaster. Then I'm going to do some cream/coffee/chocolate colours I think.

Sounds good.
Turn the music too loud and get messy!

That is a Very Scary wheel and the remnants of a Tyre.

Blow outs are not nice, i am just glad i have never had one happen to me while driving.

Good luck with the papering...

Whoa. Now that is one sick tire.

And hey - maybe your bosses will realise just how much you do.... Okay, probably not, but you can always dream, right?

Yeek. God, that must have been scary. Very glad you came out of it all in one piece, though sorry to hear about the resulting financial/work doom. :(

Good Lord Mara! That tire looks awful! Also, I admire you. You are brave to tackle wallpapering. I generally have to get help in that department.
