|Last Thursday, the delivery arrived. You know some things you imagine are always bigger when you see them in real life?|
This delivery was HUGE.
Luckily, Kathryn was here. I gave her the easy job of standing there with the clipboard and checking off the packs as I unpacked and sorted them. Then I had the easy job of making lunch while Kathryn took the yarn upstairs.
When she had finished, she said "You didn't need to get into your spare room did you? I thought she was joking.
The afternoon was spent working on the computer.
That evening I decided to go and organise the spare room. Kathryn had not been joking.
It took me well over an hour to sort and stack the yarn. It is now all stacked neatly against the wall. You can get into the room and use the spare bed. However, if I have more than one visitor, they are going to have a yarn mattress.
The best bit of all of this was my son. He is away in London all week for college.
"Why, what have you done?"
I didn't tell him. It turns out that he hadn't turned the light on when he had gone into the room. He went into the room Saturday evening, turned on the light, had a look around then said
"Did you buy a new lampshade?"
