So this should be the last furniture post for a while...

I've got the bed I ordered now instead of the loan base - I'm very pleased with it :)

And please ignore the elmo pjs that I only just noticed are sticking out from under the pillow. Darn it!

Last catchup day... and due to facebook requests there are two Saturday photos. You'll have to excuse the photos for having evidence of unfinished house organising around the place...

On Friday I set out to get started on sorting a huge number of books and then alphabetising those bear at least a passing resemblance to a novel. I didn't expect to finish that, but I did. One of those jobs you start on and just keep going and going and going. Of course, now I have to rehouse the stuff that didn't pass the something-like-a-novel test.

The first thing I did today was build this table. I've got a lot more of this room sorted now, though there's still a ways to go. Now that I can access the built-in cupboards that had been hemmed in with boxes it should progress a lot faster. Oh, and you're not seeing things, the globe in the lamp IS blue. It filters out the yellowishness you usually get in artificial light to give a more accurate colour for craft purposes.

I also went out to knock off a few things on my household shopping list. The biggest of which was a vacuum cleaner. Yay? I have to say... this vacuum cleaner sucks. You know. The way it should.

Also, I watched the Doctor Who series finale, but can say nothing as several people would be really angry if I spoilered it.

Saturday/Sunday, and I'm cheating shamelessly. I didn't precisely get a photo on Sunday, too busy worrying about furniture construction and a housewarming party. This is a very IKEA-ish post.

On Saturday I went to IKEA to get some of the furniture I need - I bought a chest of drawers, bookshelf (with half solid half glass doors for to make it a cabinet), a table and a shoe rack. All but the table are together now. I figure I'll sort that out Friday or Saturday. Now that I have more furniture everything's looking a lot more under control and I think I might actually have places for most stuff. Shocking, I know.

Oh, and it looks a lot smaller in the photo than it felt pushing that trolley around once it was fully loaded...

On Sunday, as I said, I was entirely too preoccupied. I should have got a photo of the Chernobyl meltdowns... they were very pretty indeed. Instead it's me making fun of IKEA's item names in a very childish manner...

First catchup post! Last Sunday and Monday being covered here. A decidedly furniture themed post.

This bookshelf moved into my room while I was still moving out... it was a bit weird seeing the room begin to become something other than my room. To be fair it was necessary to move it to get my desk out around a hallway corner...

The first of my new furniture arrived the next day. Unfortunately the mirror was cracked, but all the same... I have furniture :D

More tomorrow!
