...been stripping the cack varnish off a south west facing window frame. It was original with the house 15 years ago and I've been meaning to strip it and repaint ever since we moved here 8 years ago. As it faces south west it gets the sun and the rain. So I set about it with a hot air gun. I was only out there for 30 mins before I realised my head neck back and shoulders were pricking so dived inside - but too late. I got moderately bad sunburn and I look like a lobster Anne is administering the after sun and saying it serves me right, I should have put some suncream on. I hate the stuff cos it's so greasy but better that than a burn I spose And I didn't finish it, now I need to get out with the sandpaper as well. Damn X 2.
