The optometrist rang to let me know my new specs have arrived for fitting, hoorah!

Things I need from a painting station:

Well it has been an odd couple of weeks for me personally speaking. Today I have finished Portal and just sent it for an final check after the amendments have been done and completed 2 out of my "30 things to do before I die" list.
