I’ve just unpacked a chest of drawers, taking them upstairs piece by piece, ready to build, only to find that they have holes drilled in the wrong places and if I build them they’ll have a six inch overhang allowing me to get at rarely used socks by simply plucking them from the five inch gap at the back of the top surface.
I’m grumpy. I’d bought a Swedish Christmas beer to try out over the festive season. I’m going to drink it now instead. It’s a Spendrups Julbrygd, from Ikea. When poured it looks a lot like Coca-Cola, it smells malty and slightly burnt. It has a bit of a treacle taste. It packs quite a punch. The alcohol level is 5.3% and it comes in a 500ml can.
I’m going to go and finish it off vegging in front of a film. I will not pick up a power tool.
