So it always happens.
Why? I have no idea.
I always seem to start big projects at bed time.
Not during the day when I actually have the time and daylight!
But when the need for torches, more than one person, and perhaps some common sense is required.... Which I don't have at that time.
So change is one of my favorite things. And looking around at my overcrowded house, I out of the blue, and at bed time, decided it needed a change.
Now starting to move furniture in my flat is like asking for a pony at Christmas time. It's just not going to happen.
Similarly to the asking for a pony, I decided to try my luck anyway.
My house is completely upside down, I haven't sweated this much since I did the cross country in maybe year 8, and although I seem to have gone backwards in the bedtime project, the goal I set out to do was a success.
I wanted to bring in from the Garage my Loreal shelf that I mentioned in my last blog. (Ps two blogs in one day! PWOAH)
Now considering not an inch of wall/floor is visible in my place, a lot had to be shuffled to get that far.
Not just so I could fit it in, but so that I could physically get it in my front door, and maneuver it to it's new home.
Now if I were on some kind of reality TV show, watching me do that would have been a highlight at an understatement.
Let's just say I definitely needed that daylight, that other person, and most of all, the common sense.
The task was almost impossible. Thank god for swearing, or half of my house would still be left outside on the lawn in frustration.
BUT I DID IT!!!
There were a few near crashes from where laziness set in and I didn't move things out of the way properly to begin with. But nothing broke.
I did screw up the wall with some badly used claw hammering to move a hook to hang up the fab blind that I'll show you in a sec, but psht... I'll stress about it when I have to leave here.
Ok here goes....
I'd like to unveil my silly bedtime project....
How cool is the blind behind... ooh I just... Rhymed. Bad bad bad.
I'm exhausted and I'm supposed to be doing markets tomorrow morning, so I best leave my crazy house and jump into bed.
Let's hope I don't have to get up in the middle of the night because no doubt I'll forget nothing is where it normally is and I'll have very sore toes.
