got bought a bed, a dinner table and chairs, a tv table and a bookcase. I’ll have to wait a couple of weeks for the bookcase, the tv table, and the bed frame but luckily the dinner table, the chairs and the mattress were in storage. Those are the most important: somewhere to sit and sleep. I’m having them delivered next week so they’re ready before the move (and I could stay over-night right away if I feel like it).
I still have a sofa to buy and a computer desk. I’ll have to do some measuring for the living-room to find out whether the sofa I’ve planned is the right size. Don’t get me started on carpets, curtains, and lights… I think there’s something curtain-y here (and my aunt said I could have some curtains she bought but didn’t end up using) so I don’t have to hurry with that.
I must say I loooooove the dinner table and chairs. That’s probably going to be my favourite place in the whole apartment. I’ll have to snap a photo as soon as I get them. I have an idea for the lamp but I have to see one “in person” to decide whether it’ll look eccentric or excellent.
It’s really coming together, step by step.
[Edit @ 5:19] Got too excited too early. The sales person had completely botched the bookcase order. The pieces she ordered didn’t make any sense. I was told to call her cellphone and I’ll try and sort it out. Hopefully I can go to another store of the same chain where I can go without someone driving me.
[Edit @ 6:22] I called the sales person and she’s going to call me tomorrow from work so we can re-do the order.
Guess what Dad says about this bookcase debacle? “That’s what happens when I’m not there.” Argh. I don’t think I did anything wrong. It was too botched up to be only an issue of misunderstanding. But in hindsight, I should’ve double-checked the order with the catalogue in hand.
