Spilled ... Paint

This afternoon was not the best for me.  I bought a new paint tin for my mum and on my way home I turned a corner and the paint tin fell from the seat, the lid came off and my poor car had paint everywhere!  Needless to say I spent the next two hours cleaning and cleaning (then hubby came home and took over until it was cleaned as best as it was going to be cleaned). 

There are some upsides to the story!  My sister was hanging out at our place spending time with our princess so she was able to babysit while I cleaned AND the paint was water based THANK GOODNESS!!!  And I learnt to ALWAYS ALWAYS put the paint tin on the floor and if possible wedge it in between things so it doesn't move around corners. 

I didn't take any photos at the time because I was too anxious about getting the paint out and when we were done cleaning it was dark.  Fingers crossed we cleaned it well enough!

So how has your day been today?  :)
