OK, this is take two after my original post for December appears to have vanished, despite me saving and publishing it yesterday. Thanks Google.
The main news is that there isn't really any news. A lot of my time had been spent sorting out the redecoration of the lounge, so I've not had a chance to do lunchtime painting pretty much since a few days after my last post.
I now have my new lighting in, with Philips Hue bulbs so I should be able to change the colour temperature of the lights to something more conducive to painting. That said, I'm not sure yet if the lights go bright enough to paint by without any other lamps and I'm unlikely to find out until after Christmas when we can hopefully get the decorating finished.
The office move at work is now looming large. I think I should be able to make space in the lockers we're being given to keep some painting stuff at work but I might have to make do with keeping a lit less stuff at work and be smarter about what I keep around for painting.
