Good morning, everyone. It's dry out after a bit of a wet night, which is good because I need to be out quite a bit today.
Beth and I got going on those shelf units yesterday. The first unit took quite a long time but we followed some YouTube clip instructions. It's very helpful to see exactly what's going on rather than follow diagrams. It wasn't complicated, just a bit fiddly in places, and although the instructions show one person putting it together, there were plenty of times when another pair of hands was very helpful.
It wasn't a nut, bolt and screwdriver job, everything sort of slotted in and the kit provided a very business like mallet for hammering things firmly into place. As we went along, we worked out a few simpler ways of doing certain bits and the second unit went up in a third of the time.
Today has two main things. The first one is going to take most of the day and that is moving things about and getting them onto shelves. I'm starting with moving the gardening stuff from the shed which is getting a bit cluttered again and I am sure I will be feeding the black bin so I'll wheel that around to the back first. Before I get anything onto the new shelves though, I need to measure and make sure I've got the made up units exactly in the right place with room for the third unit and the corner unit to the right of them. Once I'm sure of that, it will be back and forth, back and forth! I'm glad that today is a bit longer!
The other thing is that, after quite a lot of gentle persuading, Dad has decided to dip his toe into the world of Zooming. These latest restrictions have hit him quite hard, I think, after the last long gap and then me being able to resume my visits again.
So yesterday I sent him the info to sign up to Zoom and become a 'contact' and today, at eleven, I'm sending him an invite for a chat. Fingers crossed for that because I think it will be very useful and, in time, maybe he can have family based chats with more than one person. That would be good.
So that's today. I think it will be good.
Stay safe. xx
