Kiyomi and I had ordered some more “cream” coloured paint from one of the main hardware stores here (called “How’s“) and were told that they’ll call when it’s in. Not a problem.

They called us this morning saying it had arrived. Excellent. Only problem was they called us at 8:45am and you can get a 10% discount if you buy before 9:00am.

Gotourstufftogetherjumpedinthecaranddrovetothehardwarestore. Phew. Got there with about three minutes to spare and was able to get 10% off.

Don’t laugh, 10% is 10%.

Took all of the paint to the office/classroom and started applying the second coat to the ceiling.

We finally finished the ceiling at about 12:30pm. Were my arms, shoulders and back tired. What.

The ceiling looks a lot better now. All that remains are the walls, window frames/ledges and skirting board and then we’re done.
