I FINALLY took my bed completely apart and started over from scratch, putting it together. I remember the first night that i stayed at my new place and trying to put it together. haha I had had enough by that stage and had already nearly had a breakdown over putting the futon together in the girl's room for Tans and her baby...and then i just looked at my bed all in pieces and wanted to cry.
Sooooo ever since then...the tiniest amount of weight has made it squeak so loud. I did not care how well it was put together that first night. I just wanted to sleep. Recently i have noticed the screws falling out...either that or there is a screw family living under my bed that keeps having babies.
Anyway i totally took it apart and re did it. I will never purchase another slat bed again...although i have to say it is just as comfy as my expensive bed that Danny has and was a fraction of the price. The mattress is new but the frame is awesome and from a second hand shop in Dominion Road. It cost me like 200 bucks and is gorgeous.
Anyway...just lifting the mattress was a mission for me, and i now have bigger biceps after screwing all those screws in properly....butttttt the bed no longer squeaks and the headboard no longer moves and bangs against the wall when i climb into bed. Thank goodness for that. I am sure that one more night and it would have ended up collapsing on me.
I was going to do my walk...but then i decided that before my walk, i would invest in the Ipod. That was all good...over and done with in a couple of minutes. It then took me 7 hours to work out how to get it working, and put music on it. I can say now though, that i know how to work an Ipod. I was always very proud of myself that i had avoided having to learn how the damn things worked. I can no longer say that.
I went to Foodtown and did a decent foodshop...i have a day of cooking chicken enchiladas for the girls and Nick and Kristine tomorrow...and baking cookies. I ate the last of them during a midnight trip to the kitchen last night.
Now i am going to enjoy my last evening til Friday alone in my little place...and crash out in front of a doco. I'm really missing the girls, so i am really looking forward to a drive out to Waiuku to get them tomorrow.
PS...put clean sheets on my bed too haha
