24 HRS LATER - STILL ONGOING!
A team of joiners , or at least 2 blokes and we may be on track, but a woman and her 14 year old daughter, we are struggling!
Surrounded by mountains of empty boxes and packaging, we have had every emotion tested, excitement, joy, frustration, dissapointment, stress (unbelievable stress) , more frustration, sadness, to utter dispair. Boy oh boy..........hours later and still no finished product. The wood is so heavy, we have had problems lifting up and turning over the boxes. Also the intstructions tell you to make up the side boxes first and the picture shows them standing side by side ready to fit to the centre box when it is completed.......well they dont stand, as they only have castors on 3 corners , and being so big and heavy, if they fall will cause some damage, so they have to be left on the floor. ( my grandad, who was a funeral director will think i have gone into the business - it looks like my floor is covered in coffins!)
We decided late last night to leave them and try again this morning, with a fresh start. Im sure it will be lovely when finished, although at this moment in time I am ready to launch it through the window.
I am missing not being able to do my crafting and my stress levels are sitting very , very high. I apologise for not blogging and posting any new work, but as you can see............IM DEMENTED! Good job Im not a drinker! Although this cupboard is enough to turn me to drink! Wish me luck! I need all that you can send.
