Front Door Gets a Lick of Paint

Our front door needed some smartening up due to the regular wear and tear it receives. There were a few cracks and the paint was looking a bit tired. So Liam rolled up the sleeves and sanded it down, filled it in, added primer and a few coats of fresh paint with a lovelly gloss finish.

The door should be looking good for the next handful of years.

A sample of the thoughts:

Question 2:     What are you most nervous about on the night?

To be honest, tearing a hole in my fishnets. And Tiarnan dropping me!

(Ed: neither happened)

Question 3:     Do you have any funny stories from rehearsals so far?

Tiarnan calls me “Annette” when I get ratty with him. My alter ego, apparently.
