Mark and I seemed to wake up with the same idea today. To put off the important but boring jobs by appearing to be busy all day doing something else...
It worked well.

Instead of flattening the garden and covering over our new septic tank lids (exciting..), Mark tidied his shed.
It took all day and he's now out there in the dark fitting a new light. (He's jealous of our next door neighbour's Man Cave.)

Instead of cleaning the carpet and hanging out yet more washing, I....decorated the toilet window.

Yes, it really needed doing.

Here is the Before - perspex with handy ventilation holes to let the mozzies in to bite you whilst sat on the loo in the middle of the night.

One roll of white contact paper later...

Here is the After:

Yes - it look so long to do it was dark outside when I finished.

The outside view is even better than the inside! Pity no-one will see it apart from our resident frogs.

Job done. My sense of satisfaction is marred slightly by the pile of washing still in the machine....


  1. It looks awesome. Don't worry, the washing will still be there tomorrow!

  2. That is very cool! I love the sound of frogs at night, hope they are not too noisy though xo
