So there I am, merrily varnishing a new baseboard.
A cup of tea is presented to me - excellent news.
The tea is placed on the worktop.
You can see what's coming, can't you.
The next dip of the brush, brings up something a lot runnier than varnish. Fortunately it was only a tiny dip before I realised.
Anyway, you'll be pleased to know that the tea was wiped off the brush and work continued. I decided against drinking the tea...
So - today's advice. Keep tea and painting materials well apart. You don't want to waste a tasty drink.
