Amanda wallpaper is too much trouble, though I believe that it's coming back into vogue - many people using some nice designs on accent walls.

The Duchess did all the papering here years ago - she was good at it, but I was hopeless :-D

It just depends on the colours Tec bright red on the chimney breast and lime green on the other walls would not meet with approval

You don't waffle on about it Amanda - we're just sorry that you are subjected to that kind of harassment - you don't deserve it :-(

Enjoy your breakfast Sue - bye for now

Have a lovely time Sue :-D

Tec , I like a painted room and have very little wall paper about my house . I have no doubt your new look room will be very swish when it's finished :-D

I want three walls in one colour, and the chimney brest in a contrast colour.

There is a very pretty caste iron fireplace in the bedroom that I may do in matt black

I think your OH is right Linda but unfortunatly it isn't our call and so it goes , full circle , back to the commitee :-| I excect it will get sorted , eventually , we just need to keep our heads as level as possible and watch out for each other in the mean time .
Thank you all for listening to me waffle on about it :-)

Tec wouldn't tell us if he was climbing ladders - he knows he will get a telling off if he does :-|

I have just been telling OH about your allotment loonie Amanda. He says you definitely need to get the police involved especially if you have photographic evidence

I am stripping the walls from the wheelchair, standing on one leg like a stork to do the high bits.

As the ceilings are so high there is an emulsioned freeze about 18 inches down, so wallpaper not too high.

When the walls are stripped I have a man booked to emulsion all the walls - no more papering.

Eventually, I think I could use a step ladder using Archie, but not that confident yet

Great minds think alike Linda :-D

Ah yes now the kitchen is done, you can get on with the bedroom. I hope you aren't standing on ladders to do the top part

No Sue , there was never any hard evidence regarding the chickens :-( just a great deal of circumstancial (sp) stuff . For all he is an idiot , he isn't stupid ( if that makes sense ) .

Tec , I wish you meant that :-)

Will you be hanging new paper in the bedroom or painting the walls ? I hope you are not expecting poor Archie to get you up any step ladders :-S :-|

Is there proof that he killed your chooks Amanda as surely that is a definite crime. What a worry for the other allotment users :-(

He did strim down a womans pototo foliage ( he decided it had blight ) , I think she was one of the people that wrote a letter of complaint but we get all our pieces of infomation via " chinese whispers " .

Hello Sue :-) I hope you enjoy your breakfast out . I was up early this morning , 4am to be precise , thanks to Grand-daughter Bella , the blighter just wouldn't go back to sleep .......grrrrrrr .

Good evening Tec , yes , I believe you are right and that the police will be involved eventually . The community police , special officers ( that walk around on the estate ) are aware and have a site key , so they can come in and make themselves visiable .
I hope no one thumps him either , as you all rightly say , it would play into his hands and no doubt delight him !

Good Morning Sue :-)

Hope you have a nice breakfast out.

If his strimming has cut down other peoples crops, he should be reported to the police Amanda

Good evening Tec, I hope you have had a nice day, good morning Sue
