Went to Northampton with Sam = great
(and that was it!!!!???)
I can't believe how quickly my 10 days off work have gone.
But I have done a lot.
Spent time with my Mum in Southport, had my niece and children to stay and had a fabulous day out yesterday in Liverpool with Annie Mouse & my cuz CKX. (not to mention the painting of the hall and half the dining room)
We shopped, had a tour of the Conservation Museum by my cuz (it is fabulous... I so wish I had become a conservator!), we sat in the new gardens at Liverpool One in the sunshine drinking coffee and had a most excellent meal in La Tasca.
This lady is the Pride of Liverpool. She sat on top of the Walker Art Gallery from 1877 to 1993. But as you can see she has worn a little up there and now lives safely in the Conservation Museum.
Loving her reflection on the wall
looking across the Mersey. I am wanting some B&W prints of my photos to transfer onto small canvasses to hang in my newly painted hall.... this may be an contender.
After dropping my teen off with her dad, taking the pup on an epic walk, cutting down next doors tree..... I decided to build an IKEA buy that I got in bargain corner for 15 quid.
I undid the packaging and poured the contents onto the dining room floor... found the instructions and ......these were they
check have the tools, check have only me, check have a rug & a phone.... but that was it... the last picture shows how to attach the unit to another piece of furniture.... the building instructions were missing !!! damn
I checked all the pieces and sat figuring it all out (50 odd screwy bits and numerous pieces of wood!!)
Then set to work. I now know why it was reduced from £50 to £15... the guy who had the dowel drill had too big a drill bit and the other guys that did the rest of it had a too small a drill bit ... it must have been a Friday afternoon lot!!
Anyway after an hour I DID IT .. feeling very smug :-)
oh I do have to fess to this blonde moment .... always align the drawer grooves before screwing the draw tight oh and put the drawer bottom in before attaching all 4 sides of the drawer Doh!!!
