All wall (apart from the light)

Here, Richard is plastering the side wall, or the back wall, depending on your point of view.

And this was the magnificent sight awaiting me when I returned from Arne's tag rugby match. The back wall with a coat of hardwall plaster on it. I think this is definitely the back wall, now that I come to think of it, so the other one must be the side wall. But whatever, if I'm brutally honest with myself, anyone who was whipped up into a frenzy of excitement and anticipation by my earlier post might be a tad disappointed with a couple of pictures of bog-ordinary walls.....

......But Holy guacamole! What's this? Only the shower room light, that's all! Sparky has been back in action! Oh my God!! I don't think I can take any more, I have to go and lie down!!!!

I'm worried. About you. You'll be running your hands over those walls purring about the velvety texture of the plasterwork next. Mmmm, this wall is even nicer than that one, you'll say in your best Homer Simpson voice.

Actually, having tried with limited success to plaster a small wall before, I think that people who master the plaster are indeed magicians channelling the divine. When it gets that glassy quality instead of the dusty quality..

hang on...

can I come round and feel your walls?

I'll have no more dirty talk on this forum thank you! But.... well, OK then. But only if you wear a T shirt with holes ripped in it like Richard does....
