Day 20: Kutchan
Today is my 28th birthday. I celebrated by painting the studio and cleaning the toilet.
I suppose I could have taken the day off and chilled out – but this place is still too dirty to chill out in. I like relaxing in a clean house.
I wouldn’t exactly call myself a clean freak ... but I definitely like the layer of dirt in my house to be less than a centimeter thick.
We did the second coat of paint today. Luckily there was just enough paint. It’s not perfect and if a professional looked at it they might not be impressed ... but I think it looks pretty good ... and it’s definitely a big improvement.
Now the walls look good – but as for the floor ... mmm ... this lino is full of holes and really needs replacing. But that would cost a lot so I thought I’d just scrub it and see how it looks.
It looks OK scrubbed. Sweet. No-one looks at the floor anyway and at least we don’t have to worry about damaging the lino. We can drag the furniture about as much as we want.
I was pretty exhausted after a day of scrubbing and painting. Mmm nice clean floor.
We don’t have any friends in Niseko yet and it would be a bit sad to have a party with just two people, so we’re going to go on a bit of a bar crawl tonight and check out Kutchan. I don’t know how happening this town is going to be on a Monday night ... but I’m sure it will be fun.
