Adolf has been preoccupied with a paint brush for the last couple of weeks.
Getting the house ready to put on the market with a move to Bunbury in Western Australia on the horizon. The Cook has been angling for a move for some time. (The younger Adolfian daughter lives there and runs a small business.)
Paining in this part of the world requires unusual hours. The job starts at 0500 hours and ceases before 1000 hours on account od surfaces becoming too hot. Paint dries almost before it's off the brush.
One thing I'm pleased about is the fact the house is brick and tile, unlike our previous home in Auckland which was weatherboard. So, thee job basically is spouting, down pipes, window frames and doors.
Oh, the lawn? Santa Anna couch with heaps of water, urea and high NPK fertiliser and trace elements. It's the greenest lawn in town. Funny thing is, Australians only water their lawns after they've died. You have to think about that.
