I should be writing but the house move means there are other creative things to do. A look at the Dulux colour guide has convinced me I need a Coral Flair feature wall in order to inspire creativity in my writing room. This will mean that the green carpet will have to go. How I wish someone at the Labour Exchange (that’s Job Centre in Olde English) had suggested I train for interior design work but it didn’t exist back then. I only had two choices – to go into the carpet factory or work in an office. I went to the offices of the Kidderminster Shuttle as a junior. For those who won’t know, the Shuttle is the name of the Kidderminster newspaper.I digress. Back to Coral Flair. Before it can go on the feature wall there are cracks to fill then sand down. Furniture needs moving. Certain things need dust sheets to cover and protect them. All the boring preparation stuff has to be done before I can dip my brush into the colour that will inspire me over the coming months and years.
Does anyone know how to get a job making up the names and descriptions of paint colours? I could fancy that.
