"I'll wallpaper, you take a rest" 

So my wife just said to me and don't mind if I do.

When she told me she wanted to wallpaper a couple of rooms in the house I had visions of people wallpapering in 1893 and wondered if they still even made wallpaper but a trip to Resenes has shown me that they certainly do. In fact there are tens of thousands of designs to choose from and a lot of them are very cool. Just a shame it is costing about 320 dollars to wallpaper a room that it would cost 20 dollars to paint. And then of course there was the moulding that we put around the room that was another $100. There goes SKY for another year.

Anyway, I'm off to rest.

I never see wallpapered houses anymore (which may be a Wellington thing) or at least ones in which it hasn't been painted over (giving walls a nice texture btw). Did it enjoy a heyday in our childhoods?

Regardless, those were the days before SKY Digital and series linked dual record functions - meaning the one-dayers begin the second I get home from work and not a moment before. Don't mean to go on Yamis, but happiness is a SKY remote in hand, flicking between two games of international cricket.
Shut up immediately. I am going to have to go for a swim to cool off.
