Just a little bit of stalking...
For the past couple of weeks i've been driving past the shop as often as is practicable to see if it has been painted. After a week of no action, I concluded that the landlord was only active on the painting front on weekends.
So today, with a little hesitation, I pulled up outside.
The shop has been painted!! And it looks amazing!!
Finally it is starting to look like the shop in my daydreamy head - hurrah! Tomorrow I call the landlord and grovel for some keys. Wheee!
