Joe stayed up all night painting his bedroom. He also painted the kitchen floor.

I coped with his "music while you work" (great hits of the 60s- how I hate great hits of the 60s) by inserting ear-plugs.

 The kitchen floor, which was black, is now slate grey- a huge improvement.

His bedroom, which was blue, is now pale apricot with little, glossy, black squares dotted about- which is nicer than it sounds.

And his door has the Eye of Sauron painted on it along with his army nick-name, PIG DOG.
