    I need some inspiration and motivation.....

    I started painting the barn this morning and have just had a break for lunch. I'm about to go back out there and start again but as I've been at it all morning and have only completed about 1/8th, I'm in dire need of motivation.

    Do you think some juicy tit-bits or a squeaky ball will help?:confused:

    Try some liver cake or tripe. Always does the trick here :lol:

    Put a nice treat to one side - your favourite cake or chocolate or something.

    Now - you're NOT ALLOWED to touch it till you've finished painting :D

    Only if you're training your Collies to do the work :)
    I'm sure they'd love to help!

    It seams to be the cure all for everything else so worth a try

    Having been at it most of the week-end, I feel like a big glass of Brandy and a lie down in a darkened room..... The good news is that with the help of hubby today, its probably three quarters finished.
