On a scale of 1 to 10...


How likely is it that I can build Beautiful Baby Daughters new bed before it's bedtime?
Without injuring myself?
Without getting stressed, cross and shouty?
Without any kind of DIY equipment? (excepting the mini screwdriver set I got in my Christmas cracker)

I haven't really thought this through, have I? Please pop round, bring gin and maybe a tool box.

PS - When I answered the door this morning, the delivery man said "John Lewis, Where do you want it?" and do you know HOW MUCH it killed me not to quip...
"autiegwen, anywhere you give me it"
or
In a faintly puzzled and quizzical voice "Oh I don't know, maybe the kitchen?"

Easy answer to the bed problem, get your daughter to build it herself if she wants it she can build it loil.

What did he say, did you really want him to "deliver?"

Looking Fab in your forties said...

You should have said "put the bed together and I answer your question" x

libby said...

DutchBitch said...

You finished yet luv?. (nearly 8.30pm)

auntiegwen said...

TF - oh yes, all done. Maybe I should fess up that I didn't actually do any of it...

DutchBitch said...

Are you there? Did you make it thru the Bed Assembly thing?

auntiegwen said...

Dutchy - I have to fess up and say that the beautiful baby daughter and the ex mr auntiegwen did it. Don't berate me, I know my limitations!

Working Mum said...

I was expecting her to be sleeping on the mattress on the floor, but just read that you delegated the job - well done!

Brighton Mum-Teenage Angst said...

Oooer missus! How did you stop yourself from that quip?!?! I would have had to, just for effect! Glad to see you *cough* got the bed together..

vegemitevix said...

Ahh the joys of the bane of the single mum's life - Ready to Assemble furniture. Don't know how you stopped yourself quipping a sassy reply! LOL!

auntiegwen said...

BMTA - ah yes, the art of looking helpless and getting others to do stuff for me has served me so well !!!

Vegemitemix - I have found that teenage boys are usually good at this kind of stuff, this is good news (for when the ex mr auntiegwen stops offering to fix my stuff)

Nota Bene said...

Oh I just lost a £5 bet on her still being on a matress on the floor....you owe me...x

You have done it quickly enough if Mr Tennant had been there.

auntiegwen said...

WM - ah yes, the delegating has served me well :)

NB - you should have known I'd outsource it, see ... I can still surprise you

pedro - hello again

Madame - anything I do with David Tennant would be very slowly and very, very carefully

Can you imagine how great it would be if John Lewis did branch out ... never knowing undersold takes on a whole new meaning !
