World’s best Dad

came to the rescue. After the long weekend he had a couple of days to spare and decided to come down and help us finish the big guestroom (or as he calls it “my room”).

With all the hours of work he has put it, he definitely deserves it and, most importantly, he deserves the biggest hug, a pint of Guinness and the golden key to the guest room.

This is the room when we came to look at the house first in August 2009

And this is the man hard at work. Not only did he spackle the unsightly walls, he also sanded them down. An ungrateful job, after which he looked like this

Und das ist der Mann, der die Arbeit vollbracht hat nicht nur den Rauputz zu glatt zu spachteln, er hat ihn auch noch abgeschliffen. Eine undankbare Arbeit, nach welcher er so aussah:

Covered in dust from head to toe.

Von Kopf bis Fuß mit Staub bedeckt.

After that he cleaned the room, painted the walls with a layer of foundation and two coats of white before he got down to business and layed laminate throughout the room and upstairs hall and cut down the door to size.

Nachdem er den Raum gesäubert hatte, hat er nicht nur mit Tiefgrund gestrichen und zweimal gweißelt sondern auch im Zimmer und dem oberen Flur Laminat verlegt und die Tür  zurecht gesägt.

Thank you so much Dad. We love you.
