Ikea-itis and the vanished weekend!

When I got into the office this morning, and was making my coffee brew, a colleague asked me “How was your weekend?”. A very ordinary question, to which I think many ask that out of habit and not because of genuine interest. Anyway, my response was “What weekend?”

Friday started with a frantic trip to Ikea to ensure that we get all our stuff for the house. Of course, I was also migrating WebAperture the next day so I had to start the file replication (there’s gigabytes of data) on Friday as it take a couple of hours to finish plus I had to do verification. Anyways, off to Ikea for dinner and a frantic rush through the store to get things such as my new work area desks, bookcases, and storage racks. Looking at the size of the bookcases and the desks plus the fragility of the glass doors, we decided to split the load and come back on Saturday.

To cut the story short, by the time Saturday rolled in, we’ve had the second trip and lunch and the assembly started. Well, it didn’t end until Sunday evening. Of course we took time out to have a simple dinner, go to Church on Sunday morning and did some groceries too.

My fave tools, and enough to assemble everything from Ikea.

Look, no need to refer to the instructions!
