Decorated Heroes

Or decorating heroes to be precise. My mum and dad came down recently to help with some decorating in our living room. We’d had some water that had come in a while back and had left a horrible dark mark where the paper had once been.

It was practically a black hole (without there actually being a hole of course) and was the focus of the room once you entered it, dragging your stare into the darkness. I felt really bad as my mum and dad offered to come down the day after their wedding anniversary and my mum had a bad leg, which meant me practically being the Daniel Larusso of the decorating world for that weekend.

She was soon scootered out of the room before she ended up like that bloke stuck to the board hanging over shark infested water/ on a board dangling from a helicopter in the old  Solvite adverts!
