You would think that if you ordered a seven-foot long bed that comes in two pieces, those pieces would be 3'6" long each. You would think that, wouldn't you? I thought that. Heck, even the bed company that sold it to me thought that.

Turns out what actually happens is that they make one four-foot segment and one three-foot segment. Maneouvering the larger segment up the stairs and into my flat was...challenging. But it went in eventually, even if we did have to take my front door off its hinges in the process. And now I have a wonderful, large (technically a double), comfortable bed to sleep on. Although it is a little too long for my sheets.

Meanwhile, I also have a rather nice wooden table sitting in the back of my car. Three foot square, with extendable bits and four chairs. I think, finally, that I'm almost there in terms of furnishings. It's a shame that it's a day late, what with Nick, Roxanne, Leo and Louise coming over for dinner last night but hey, definitely better late than never. Particularly since my colleague is actually giving it to me - a big thankyou for that.

This weekend, I will be in a field in the middle of Oxfordshire with tinyjo, oxfordhacker, squigglyruth, truecatachresis, cleanskies and others. Should be fun.
 
 
 
 
 
 
Oh yeah, we're going to the Radcliffe this evening so if I'm not at home when you arrive, that's where we'll be. We'll text you if plans change.

Aw crap. The one weekend I have to be down in Oxford and you're all busy. :(

I mean, have a great time guys! :)
Come to Truck, too!
Aren't you going to be about for Caption?

Alternatively, are you going to arrive this evening?

Alternatively, come to Truck. I'll have another search for the ticket-that-I-lost-and-bought-a-replacement for in anticipation of the fact that you won't be able to come to the whole thing and therefore it would be a bit of a waste for you to buy a whole ticket.

Alternatively, harass Tom and Mike and Lyndsey. I'm pretty sure they're not around and not going to Truck. :-)
Aren't you going to be about for Caption?

Yes. It's not actually the one weekend I'm going to be in Oxford. ;)

Alternatively, are you going to arrive this evening?

Yes, but not 'til about 10.30pm. I'm off to get the train in 15 mins, but will have my mobile on me.

Alternatively, come to Truck.

I'm otherwise engaged for most of Saturday, until late afternoon/early evening. Is it still possible to get tickets at this late date? I'm not sure how I'd make my way out to Abingdon either. (But if do find your lost ticket, let me know.)

Alternatively, harass Tom and Mike and Lyndsey.

Lyndsey's away, but I might try to track down the others.
You know, since it has been so difficult getting it in, you'll never want to remove the bastard ... simply donate the bed permanently to the flat eh. ;-)

re: Truck ... awww, me wish I was in Oxford to Truck too. ;-(

oh well. My damn fault for being on the other side of the planet. (memo to self: need to fix that, I'm sure Larissa would concur)
