Weekly vlog number 5 | DIY Disasters, Family Time And Not Burying Andrew Under The Patio | Weekly Vlog #5 | Barefaced Chic

Well, there’s been quite a lot of laughter in the Barefaced Chic household this week – nothing new there then. If you watched last week’s vlog, you will know that we have made a start on the HUGE amount of DIY that’s been hanging over us like the sword of Damocles for that last ten months.

I’ve been attempting to do some of it unsupervised and it didn’t quite go to plan. Now I’m usually pretty good at DIY, in fact I was once dubbed the glossing goddess. Which sounds kind of rude to me, but I’m sure the person involved was referring to my skills with a paint brush!

Yet this last foray into the world of gloss paint was a bit of a disaster. The paint was beyond rubbish (thanks for that Wilkinson) and my once awesome steady handed painting perfection has turned into utter pants. I think it may be due to the fact that I’m useless at focusing properly with my varifocals.

I also managed to tip an entire pot of paint over the floor, put a handle on backwards and get my hand stuck in a washing powder dispenser.

I did spend some time with family (that’s my daughter Rachel in the above pic), caught the Red Arrow air display and almost got my camera eaten by a couple of furry terrors. You see, my life IS madder than a box of hairy eggs.

Enjoy watching the mayhem that is weekly vlog number 5 and please do subscribe if you want’ to keep up to date with the madness that is my life.

    I hear you and agree, eyes are not what they used to be. I hate painting, more of an emulsion girl! thanks for sharing. x Jacqui
