I spent 7 hours last Friday furniture building. The instructions said an hour and a half for two people. I was on my own. I've still got blisters on my hand from turning the screwdriver and I had lots of aches and pains on Saturday. It's satisfying to watch the joints close snugly as you tighten the screws. I am very proud of the result.
This week I've put up the Christmas decorations - and very nice they look, even though I say it myself. I had a bit of a panic when I couldnt find the crib, but they were all there waiting for me in a different box to the one I thought they were in.
I haven't even thought about food much. As we have a couple more auctions coming up, I won't be thinking much about it next week either. One of the local supermarkets has a drive in now - I might have mentioned it before. It will be so nice not to have to struggle with an overloaded trolley in an overcrowded shop. I suppose the drive in will have a queue a mile long.
