I was worried the scaffolders would be rude oyks but no, they were polite and got on with the job, they even moved my plants off the fire escape for me.
Random fact: You have to go back to 1913 (just 30 years after our house was built in 1883) for the last major facelift on Buckingham Palace, when it gained its familiar white stone façade. The facelift came because the original soft French stone had decayed due to all the pollution.

Anyway, back to me. I am really liking this orange ladder against the natural colour of the scaffold planks. I had a little rummage around Pinterest and I am now rethinking our planned colour scheme. Maybe some orange in the bathroom would be cool?
