Home & Family TO BE FIXED

The Walls of Jericho came tumbling down…

Well, maybe not the Walls of Jericho, but definitely a dining chair!  I took the first load of boxes etc over to the storage unit, only to put one box into the space and have a dining chair come flying down from above!!  B*gger!!  I didn’t get hurt at all, and it seems that the chair is still in one piece, but it poses a bit more of a challenge now to get everything into storage.  While I had everything neatly laid out, I’ve now had to balance the dining chair in a space where there should be NO dining chair … that space was nicely allocated to about 4 more storage boxes … mutter mutter mutter.  Unfortunately I can’t reach to put the stupid chair back where it was before (although if there’s any possibility of it moving again, it probably isn’t wise anyway).  It will be interesting to see how I manage to get the rest of the goodies into that tiny wee gap that’s left, ‘cos there’s still my computer to go in, 4-5 boxes of stitching stuff, my sewing machine, and duvet inners … haha, I’m laughing out loud just thinking about how it’s all going to fit it!  If I wasn’t so delirious with sleep deprivation I’d probably be quite miffed 😉

Anyway, time to head out into the bitter cold again … I very stupidly left my shopping bag with my wallet in it at work (duh!!), and I asked a lady who lives about 10 minutes drive away to bring it home with her – I’ll just have time to pop round and pick it up, come home and jump in the shower, and get tucked up in bed.  The ducted heated has been cranked up all afternoon to soothe the chills (6C yesterday during the day … woohoo LOL) so the room will be lovely and warm when I get home again {{sigh of contentment}}.  Talking of which, I’d better run …

  1. Ah, the mad cackle of insanity. You can always try my husband’s approach – it WILL fit, regardless of how it looks when we are all done. 😉

  2. Oh gosh, I’m glad you’re not hurt. I feel your pain – I’ve got two storage areas chockful of stuff, and I’m still trying to figure out where I’m going to put the boxes when I start packing up the apartment.

  3. It was very lucky that you didn’t get hurt with that chair. I don’t know how on earth you’re going to fit all that into the tiny space you’ve got left! OMG it’ll be piled to the ceiling.

    You know, I find it really strange to read your blog and how cold it is. I had no idea it got cold like that in Australia. I always assumed it was hot all the time and your winters were like our summers – kind of in the early 20’s. Yeah, I know. I’m a dumb ass. :o)

  4. Glad you didn’t get hurt! What a pain though – hope you find room for everything.
