glam, happy

I am tired, I am weary

And my elbow hurts because I slept on it in a funny way. OK that's not very poetic but it's has the poetry of truth.

Phoned a few removal companies and found them booked up, which is discouraging, but I found one which may be able to do Wednesday 11th. This would mean getting someone else to record Buffy and Angel for us, or leaving the TV and video behind and moving it later...

I can't think of anything else to say, so Collapse )

when father papered the ceiling

Once again I must consult with the hive mind that is LJ. Me and sibelian have been (graciously!) given permission to remove the flowery wallpaper in our new flat and paint the walls white or cream. So who out there has experience of wallpaper removal and what's the best way to go about it. Especially since we have high ceilings (though we do have access to a ladder, which it would take a roof rack to move from Mir to Laputa). Should we hire a wall paper stripper, and if so where from. Will we need to prepare the walls before painting them? We're only doing the walls because we only have a few days for this, but I'm quite keen to get rid of that wallpaper...
