Different type of painting today

Good afternoon you lovely lot!

I just thought I’d share with you all, the other type of painting I do. Yes, I am a painter and decorator by trade. Alot of my adult life has been, not knowing what I really wanted to do with my life and in the midst of my other half wanting to learn a trade, not long after we met (and had started doing at the time…plumbing), I thought I might like to too.

The only one I thought would fit in with me as a person and my background, was painting and decorating. So back in 2006 I enrolled back in college to do a course and did two years of it, which enabled me to go out into the world, confidently knowing my trade. I continued with it, on and off until around 2013 and decided to take a break from it.

I was still working nearly full time (32 hours a week…evenings) at the time and then was decorating in the day and I was burning the candle at both ends. After suffering a miscarriage in 2013, I decided that something had to give, if we wanted to start a family and that’s what I did. We had Emily in 2014, best thing we’ve ever done.

As you can see, I still dabble at home…this is something I wanted to help Matt with today. He has a business running mobile bars and he’s built this new one, it just needed varnishing, so I stepped in to help.

I absolutely love what I’m doing now with my artwork and would never want to give that up, as I think I’ve finally found what I want to do, but having trained and learned the skills needed, I know this is something I can take back up again in the future if I want to.

Wishing all a wonderful day

Lots of love
