Our friend Adam was visiting as he was working locally (he’s a chef) so he came over and got roped into helping me put together furniture. OK, I’ll admit it. He did the furniture (my desk) while I made him coffee and did other bits of unpacking. Here he is making a start (sorry for blurry photo):

Here is the finished article.




I of course provided dinner and beers for the workmen….

Here is them putting my bed together

Here it is finished apart from the slats which were too big (have contacted Ikea):

While they were working on the furniture I unpacked boxes for the kitchen and arranged things how I want them (although this will probably change 3 or 4 times when I move in properly:

It feels good to have moved stuff in. I know I won’t be in properly until a) we get back from holiday, b) we manage to get the right slats for my bed (along with a replacement side table as it had a large scratch in the middle of it.

There will be so much other stuff to sort out – gas & electric, redelivering my sofa, getting Sky TV installed…. And much much more. But its all exciting and I’m feeling happy.




Please comment so I know I'm not alone out here!
