I think I may have a tennis elbow, not that I have ever played any tennis but my right arm/elbow is really quite sore. However instead of improving my non-existent backhand I have been brightening up my miniscule back-yard with white masonry paint and brush.

I really only store my bike in this space but my little office looks out onto it and it is less than inspiring. So since the sun is out and  my lovely neighbour helped me anker a bike-lock to the ground in the front of the house, I decided it was time to change my view.

After a good few hours of painting (it was much harder and took much longer than anticipated, since masonry paint isn’t like other paint), a visit to a garden store and a sore elbow my back-yard is now a much happier place. All I need to perfect my view is a little birdhouse to encourage my winged neighbours to visit now and then.
