quickpost: I’ve finally did it myself!

Using my quickpost for this week to make sure there’s a post every day! VERY quick post tonight because I fell asleep in front of the TV and it’s nearly midnight. Why am I so tired? Simple. I spent all day DOING DIY! Honest to God. I’ve never felt manlier – I almost went out and bought a cigar and a six pack of beer. Did I? No. I did some DIY though. Admittedly all my drilling and measuring and sawing (I shit you not, I used a saw) were done to the best hits of Juice Newton, but still? The shelves will probably end up on the floor with a cat pinned underneath and it’ll cost me ridiculous amounts in vet fees, but for a moment, I FELT LIKE A KING. I once put a bed together from IKEA and realising that I hadn’t quite done it correctly, I just used a pile of magazines to prop up one corner. That bed lasted me three years of hard ‘single living’, if you know what I mean. God bless you Nintendo Magazine, you have no idea how many intimate moments were stacked upon your pages.

Anyway – bed for me, recipes tomorrow – this is like a mini break for Paul and I see.

Here’s what I did!


Ladies, if such a display of manliness has left your lettuce wet, I apologise, but I’m married! Tsk.

  1. I look forward to your blog every day! As a Newcastle lass I get your witty observations about the city and surrounding area…..brilliant reading. Wish I had friends like you two! Keep up the good work x

  2. Only just discovered your blog and I’m made up I did – I’ve literally cried laughing!
    Hate having to speed walk because some bastards trying to overtake me. I’m built for comfort not speed! Anything that brings a bead of sweat to my brow is guarenteed to piss me off x
