Now there's irony

Posted: 02/08/2014 at 21:34

There is a lovely line in the Blackadder series, when he asks his servant; 'Do you know what irony is?' and the servant replies, 'Yes, it's like coppery and silvery'.

Mice or possibly Mouse

Mice or possibly Mouse

The Jack Russell has just caught this, right outside the house, 1 metre from the undersink cupboard

 I don't think it is a mouse. I put the snail there for an idea of scale.

Obelix, that box/chest you painted is original and professional

If you go to Johnsons Leyland, they will mix any colour you want, they do very good versions of Farrow and Ball for far less and the quality is good. I did the outside of my house in F&B Dorset Cream using Johnsons exterior paint and am pleased with the way it has lasted.

Obviously they can't achieve the very matt finish of some of F&B's emulsion paints, but one would varnish or wax it anyway. They can mix, I believe, 15000 colours I'm a professional in this field and often recommend their paint to clients who are balking at the price of F&B, Annie Sloan, Paint Library etc.
