I can only go up from here

I built a ladder! This was Sunday afternoon's project because I wanted to be able to get up in the roof where I have all sorts of goodies stored. One day that space be a loft (okay, that's how I'm dreaming of it), but for now it's storage.
If you're wondering how I got into the roof before, well, the old ladder was just too big and heavy.
Sunday morning I said to Hubby, "I want to make a ladder." He said, "Don't you want to do something better with your Sunday?" "No," I said, "I couldn't think of anything more fun. If you can show me how the table saw works, I'll cut the wood down".  He said, "Just go and buy a ladder". "No," I said laughing, "it goes against my principles.We have the wood lying around, so it won't cost a cent and we'll be recycling". So that's what I did.  To finish, I gave it a little white wash. I think, just between you and I, he's quiet proud of me.
And another thing just between you and I: don't tell Mum and Dad I used the table saw.
