A test of skills (or lack of…)

The weekend beckons, and with it the prospect of hand-making some more furniture. Yes, that’s right folks, we’re building overhead storage.

Not furniture related, but hopefully we'll be looking out on something like this if we ever get beheaded by bedroom furniture

It’s a scary prospect for me, because I’m quite partial to a night of sleep undisturbed by home-made wooden boxes complete with too many clothes landing on my head. But, the wonderful other half has insisted. And quite right too, I suppose, as the alternative involved us both getting two or more jobs and begging in doorways to pay for a random fella to make us some. And he wouldn’t even put it up for us! Flatpack, indeed! I know. What a joker. So, for now, the one job between us will have to do and so begins home-made everything (you read right, blog fans, I told ‘em to stick it).

We don’t stop there wise readers, we’re also attempting to put our lovely new little stove in there ourselves too (we might let someone else cut a hole in the roof though…). Health and safety can obviously bugger off. It’ll be alright (probably).

Hopefully, the weekend has some other little nuggets of joy to bear as well, but that’s for another rambling. You’ll just have to wait and see won’t you!?
Right, I’m off, I do hope you’re all jolly happy today.
