Ikea Update

In the last three days we've battled one non-sleeping teething baby, three colds (everyone except Jasper, so far), lots of government paperwork (enough to drive the usually very calm David, completely bonkers) and still managed to assemble one Continental Queen bed, one single bed, one dining room table, one convertible lounge, one enormous coat and shoe rack, three coffee tables and a bookcase! And we still have three more bookcases to go.

Here is Jasper helping me assemble the coffee table (note: he is sitting on it - the coffee pot was supposed to be distracting him)

And here is Lily in her brand new home knitted jumper from Gran - made from the special "non-itchy" wool. She is performing the patented Giorgi "itchy neck" test on her father (from whom she gets her itchy wool phobia!). The new lounge is visible in the background - it converts to a comfy double bed, if anyone is interested in visiting!

Oh! I thought Dav was giving me the thumbs up about the jumper being a success.

Hooray for furniture! And maybe your mom can join our SnB group someday while she visits and teach us how to make that cute sweater.

assembling ikea furniture is horrific at the best of times, let alone with sick kids! well done I say you! itchy wool phobia, that's funny. I think I'm developing a phobia of mowhair. I keep buying stuff with mowhair in it and then it sheds everywhere and is horrible.
