My Star

A Star for Stuart.

So after the early start we made by having the Bed Men battering down the door we had a quick breakfast decided to wait and have our showers later we got started to the big move.  First we had to get the big double divan and matters downstairs. Our stairs have a sharp bend at the bottom so it was a bit difficult to get first the mattress round and then the base. Fortunately the base splits in two so it was not to bad. The delivery men had dumped the new beds in the living room and had no intentions of taking them upstairs so we then had seven  trips up and down with all the different components.  Stuart has been a real star today, in all this heat and it was very hot in our bedroom as it is south facing the sun was shining brightly and there was not a breath of wind. Is this really Scotland or has someone moved us south   this summer?. Back to the tale of the beds for once the flat pack contained all the correct screws nuts etc. so they went together no bother all.  Unfortunately Stuart forgot to charge his electric screwdriver so he had to do it manually.  He did really well and by 12 noon both beds were up and in position. Since then I have made them up ready for us to fall into tonight in the hope it will be cooler.  At this moment I cannot get cooled down at all the perspiration is dripping off my forehead. Will go and run in under the tape when I finish this entry. Have not taken pictures yet as I have two odd duvet covers on and it does not look good but I will show you when I get it all matching.  When i say things like that to Stuart he just gives me one of those Hmmmmm looks more pennies.  Never mind I will charm him round OK have had lots of practice. Think I am rambling now it must be the heat.  Will go now and see if I can cool down maybe if I put new batteries in my wee fan it will help.  Bye for now.  Love.

Oh I did hoover all the dust that was under the bed

Does Stuart cry when you spend money? Robbie cries when I do, but he reckons that is the Scot in him (his dad was irish, his mum a scot) and he is a tight wotsit, LOL!!!! If anything he is too generous....to me anyway! Well done Stuart with the beds!!! love Joan
