Stamp? 24. March. 2009 Another late upload. Decided to get it done a bit earlier than I have been - giving myself a better chance to do it all on the right day... But hated all of them, and by the time I'd edited, coudn't stay awake. I hate hat month. What a stupid idea... Since I haven't been writing about anything I've done lately... I guess I won't remember. On the day this was taken, Ben was home ill, with some body ache, head ache, sore throat, cough etc. thing. So, I spent most of the day in my room reading a story online, cos he was sleeping in the lounge, and outside with the chickens. Other than that, I guess not too much has happened. I keep having weird headaches/kinda foggy head feeling every day, and am tired - probably something to do with hayfever... and the fact I've slept on a sofa for about a year. And on Sunday, we tried to put together the stupid IKEA bookcase that I had to lug down the garden the other day. Not easy. Very heavy. So yeh, we finally got round to constructing it... did not go well. It must literally be the worst bookcase in the world. We just really needed a bookcase, to be able to even get in the cabin any more - so we got one. When we finally got through to make sure they delivered it in a small van this time [as last time the drivers had a go at us for not specifying - when you actually can't online, and I had told the lady on the phone we'd need a small van as we lived down a small lane!] - and this added another week to our delivery date? Why... I'm pretty sure DHL deliver every single normal day. So at least they were nice this time. After that I had to take the thing down the garden - and let me tell you, for such crap 'wood', it's heavy. The shape of the box would make it heavy for two people to carry, and since there was only me... that wasn't an option anyway, but the shape/size also made it too heavy for just me to carry. Though I did with one, and then opened the other and took out the big bits... Tbh, the whole bookcase is crappy, the paint? covering? plasticy crappy paint layer, was already chipped. When all the sides slid off the sack barrow, cos of whatever they're coated in [which btw marks if anything touches it] I about gave up... then just carried them down there 2 by two... So, that was getting them down there... That was first thing in the morning - and after that I was too tired, energyless, and pissed off for much else. Putting it together... well... you wouldn't understand unless you were there... or have made flat pack furniture that had defeated you to the point it breaks beyond repair and in a state of rage you have to walk away. Well this was, me, my mom, and my brother, who was only down there for about the last half hour... So yeh... a the pathetic wooden dowells, is that how you spell that? Dowels. Okay, half of them broke, or started to because of the way you had to hammer them in, or nearly broke off one in beacuse the wooden dividers for the shelves were too heavy for them. Then the shelves wouldn't go in. My mom and I probably will have future back problems because of trying to get them in, before I found a slightly better way... which lightened the mood... for five minutes, until we got to putting the the other side, and bottom on. The holes for the screws [which btw, don't work without a hammer] didn't line up - the dowels would all go into the holes the were meant for, at the same time... but even when that was on [with a hole in front where mom could only get it on with a hammer]... none of the holes lined up. And the worst bit of all. It says to make it flat on a carpeted floor - so we did, except, to put the screws in, it's too close to the floor to turn the allen key... We'd done it all right. Mom called my bro to help us lift it, because it weighs a frikin' ton, started lifting it, so that we could get to the screws to do them up, as instructed... and the whole bottom broke off - all the dowels snapped, all the shelves fell out or swung on their one intact dowel. At this point, I was ready to hack it up with an axe. But, willing to still have it - with no patience, or nerves left untrodden, we began a plan to modify it, with the Surviving dowels, and only two of the four shelf dividers on the bottom [losing the support for the rest of the elephant weighted fake wood]. Apparently, this wasn't going to work either. Trying to get the dowels back out only broke the rest of them, and there were broken halves left in the hole we needed. At this point I gave up. And left to try and calm down. Mom and Ben stayed to stare at it, and try and find a new solution... Which was apparently to leave out all but one shelf that wasn't properly attached - may have worked - but have it upside down, to support it's weight, and have a big open ugly shelf at the top, with all the visible holes that should be filled, and half broke dowels... and the brown bottom of the bottom as the top [ the rest is white...] - nice...

Our partially painted bedroom
Our partially painted bedroom
This is from our bedroom door which gives you an idea of how small our bedroom is. At the same time you can check out the side table Wendy fixed up. The table itself is made up of particle board, wallboard, counter-top, and was five different colors or brown and orange. I bought the wooden boxes from Jysk and Wendy painted it all a mochachino brown that we have used on quite a few other pieces of misfit furniture at the cabin.
