Boredom strikes!

My Dad is a lovely, very funny man. By day he is a manager of 'people' and by night he plays in a band. He recently decided to have a week off work. One whole week to finish off the bathroom (which has been upside down for sometime) and generally relax.

I really believe that some people should not be left alone. Especially when they have time to waste and some camera film to use up.

My dad is always telling people to tidy up, saying that 'everything has a home' and he doesn't understand why people need so much of the same thing. He is a 'you only ever need 3 pairs of shoes' kind of guy. 1 pair of general shoes, 1 pair of smart shoes and 1 pair of slippers. He lives with 2 women; my Mam and my sister (and me some of the time). While he was off work for that whole week, this is what he did; (please feel free to click on each image to get the full effect)

He was so proud of himself when he showed me the photos :D

I only have 3 pairs of shoes, hiking boots and 2 pairs of slippers (well ok I have 3 other pairs of wedge shoes but don't ever wear them because I can hardly walk in them, just bought them because they were pretty,..and technically free :p)

that is a lot of bathroom stuff! did he get the bathroom finished after taking photos?
