Moving house

Yesterday, for example, my two brothers and I started (START) painting the upstairs rooms. Unfortunately, while I was mixing (MIX) the paint, one of my brothers opened (OPEN) the door. Nobody told (TELL) him that we were (BE) in the room. So instead of painting the walls, we spent (SPEND) all morning cleaning paint off the floor. But worse things have happened (HAPPEN) since then. This morning, when I woke (WAKE) up, water was dripping (DRIP) through the ceiling next to my bed. We have spent (SPENT) the last five hours repairing the roof. It is not all bad news though.
