Never think about how much you’ve got left to do or you’ll never finish, just give up and drink tea instead!

I take skirting off, because cutting in along skirting makes me sob, and that way I can properly cover the floor. So, skirting off, tape glass, sockets, light fittings etc, then paint ceiling first if it’s being done (because it’s easier to cut the walls in), then cut in walls and use softish brush to do corners, then roller walls, rinse and repeat until have good coverage, then do other woodwork (i do this after walls as again find it easier to cut in), then replace newly painted skirting and ta da!! 😀
I usually set aside a couple of hours a night for three nights to do each room.

Oh, and can highly recommend a paper boiler suit – or clothes you hate!
