A little while ago I told about the exciting new direction dots and spots was moving in - *PREMISES* Yep! We picked up the keys a couple of weeks ago but I've had to sit twiddling my thumbs because our furniture delivery wasn't arriving until the 25th! That has been so hard for me - waiting, I hate waiting for anything. I have had to wait a further 3 days to go over and see what my fabulous husband has been up to. He has left the house early each morning, arrived home for half an hours lunch and not been seen again until teatime, for the past 3 days.
This was how I last viewed it - a blank canvas ready to be filled with dots and spots goodies, plus a little other accumulated junk hidden in a corner - the less said about that, the better!!
So I was in for a huge surprise today when I opened the doors. I could just about make out Jeff, hidden behind the 'Ikea Mountain' and hundreds of boxes!
The poor guy has had to build 7 - 5x5 expedit cube units, 2 - 4x4 expedit cube units, 7 - sets of Billy shelving units (3 with doors), 2 large tables, 2 small tables, 2 sets of red drawers, a trolley and a partridge in a pear tree!!!
These are my fabulous Billy shelving units - perfect for all picking and packing all my cards! I'll need a ladder for the top set, being a shorty! but they are just what I wanted! There is even room to add another set as and when I get time to design new cards.
Around the corner is the accumulated junk I mentioned. We used to have a storage unit but have found a corner within the premises to hide it all. To be fair it's not junk - the majority of it, is 10 years of teaching resources which are just too good to get rid of - yet! I didn't want it to be on show so.....
....... have used one of the cube units, covered with an old curtain at the back, to hide it all! Note the 2 willing helpers busy at work - I wonder how long it will last?!!
Tomorrow is another big day, I reclaim my house! All the stock - cards, postcards, Christmas cards, envelopes, cellophane's, tape, notebooks, posters, flat pack boxes, bubble wrap, trade fair display stuff etc, etc go tomorrow! Better get an early night!
