I've been painting and I put one of those Bounce sheets that you put in tumble driers in the hoover. Now when I use it, it blows out a lemony smell. Better than paint.
And when you do any painting always keep some of the paint in a small container for touching up scuff marks later on. Paint kept in the tin usually congeals and hardens, but in a tablet bottle or suchlike remains usable for years.
Aren't drills fantastic?. Just done numerous odd jobs. I love DIY.

Sounds like you should be on TV. But would you be the big blond one or the short haired Scottish one?

Wondering how today went for you, Sarah - maybe I'll find out on the SE1 Discussion ..

so where did you put the bounce sheet?

inside the dust bag maybe?

yes drills are great? but a saw is better! less likelyhood of not seeing a pipe, or cable and ending up electrocuted, or wet.

I put it under the dust bag so as not to block the filter.
Works a treat.

They say they work well in cars, instead of Magic Tree fresheners - just pop one under the driver's seat, and hey presto!

under one's bum? :-) might benefit a few people I know..

but don't people only have magic trees because of Repo Man??

I can't see a Bounce sheet having uneplained links to extraterrestrials.

...there's plenty more c**** in the cup.
