    "The hardest part is working out what to paint, in what order, so Pooch doesn’t get near it :eek: I don’t think “glossed” Pooch wouId be a good look :rolleyes:'

    We've got painters in the house (fortunately sent by insurers after a leak) and I've got 'gates' (large bits of cardboard) across doorways to keep the dogs out....the painters aren't too amused about having to navigate them and we already have a noseprint! (checked noses and no sign of paint....maybe wiped it off on the carpet :rolleyes:). Trying not to make them spend all day either locked up or on their own in the garden (that's the dogs, not the painters.....although.....:D )

    Hope you finish soon and baby girl rewards you with cuddles and dry nappies ;)

    I have the same @charlie10 ... I shield one side of the door while painting, then open it & put a stool in front so Pooch can’t knock it, I’ve had a piece of MDF across a doorway to stop Pooch walking into a room & rubbing against the door frame :rolleyes:

    Pooch is so insistent on being near me, I’m convinced a paint can will be upended soon :eek:

    I hope your leak wasn’t too bad ;) Shortly after they moved here, the shower poured through into the kitchen, I don’t fancy that one, but some friends were flooded a few years ago, the whole downstairs :eek: with burst river banks :(

    If the painters aren’t happy ... they can go in the garden :D

    6’ Louvre doors, I did one side of one today with a side of one door & a door frame. I think I’m flagging

    Sam, it sounds as if you are pushing yourself hard - as usual! At least it isn't long until you get lovely baby cuddles :)

    I hope bathing Pooch didn't render you wetter than him! :)

    To be honest @Slugsta he was very good in the bath, but a nightmare after it. For the 3 years we’ve had him, he has always dried himself by rolling around on a large towel

    Not this time. He sat on the towel & just looked at me. No matter what I did or said, he wouldn’t budge. Of course, he had to do this on a day when I couldn’t find mums hairdryer (I don't use one). So, I was trying to mop floors etc, hunting for the missing hairdryer (still missing) & getting quiet cross

    However ... Baby Girl is here :D She’s adorable of course :p Not only have I had cuddles, but I’ve even fed her :) Yay. Nana Sam is well happy
