I was thinking about starting my decorating programme and realised that I was a bit limited in how much i could reall do myself. I know of course, how to rub down paintwork, woodwork and doors. I have the materials in my garage to do all this, but my stability on a ladder is not as good as it should be and a slip last year has dented my confidence in doing even simple things if it involves anything higher than a step stool. This is a shame because otherwise I am quite capable. I can’t really do half the job, i.e. do all the levels to which I can reach without climbing. So I’ve decided to invest in having a company come and do the redecoration work. I will beforehand though, have a professional carpet cleaning company to deal with years of build up in my gorgeous honey coloured woolen carpet.
