Yesterday morning and this morning, the mulch from the tree stump grinding was spread throughout the various garden beds in the backyard. But there's still a lot left over. Next weekend we'll do the front yard.

After the yard work, the leadlight French doors which lead out from the kitchen onto the deck were stripped back. There didn't seem to be many layers of paint and with the help of a heat gun the paint just peeled off.

It was a laborious job, but Jason seemed happy enough to do it. He wanted to see how it would look with an au naturel oil finish. My preference is a simple white gloss finish.

The doors looked like they had a really bad fake tan. They will be painted white gloss instead. At least we won't die curious...
Also, it seems I have unwittingly propelled Jason and Mr Rooney, our debonair builder, to superstar status via this blog. I've been inundated with email questions regarding Mr Rooney (actually just one enquiry, but that's better than none, right?). And Jason, well...without him there is no blog.
Anyway, they think chicks dig them. Now they've developed a bit of a strut when they're out and about. It's very funny.
I stumbled upon this hilarious The Flight of the Conchords music clip, so I thought I'd dedicate this song to Jason and Mr Rooney - legends in their own minds. It should be their anthem.
You know what I'm sayin', baby.
