Fucking Flatpack

Everyone is having a nice valentines day (atleast according to all the Instagram and Facebook posts) whereas we don't actually do that shit in our house so we've fell into a fucking time warp of building fucking flatpack that honestly feels like it began in the early 1800's its been going on THAT long.

Not one room in my house seems to be finished or liveable right now because we're mid way through having floor fitted and also have a half fitted cooker hood (fucking nightmare I knew we should have threw money at from the start) a cooker in the middle of the kitchen that I can't use so we're still eating absolute shit and 2 ikea wardrobes to build.

Well, it's just 1 left to build now really since after our time warp day of flatpack fucking HELL we've almost got the one in our room built.
It is a BEAST of a wardrobe and has almost brought me to tears due to the fact that we cracked one of the mirror panels in the corner (£60 for a replacement pack so that god damn crack will be there with us for life) and spent close to an hour trying to slot the doors on. That shit is HARD.
Like I said, I wanted to cry several times and I don't care if that makes me sound like a baby. I also now just feel angry. Angry I wasted all day on it, angry we cracked it, angry I wasn't doing fun things with my kids, angry it was so difficult and especially angry that we could have thrown money at this too and paid somebody £100 to build it (which would have also saved us the £60 and absolute hell we're going to have to endure buying a new mirror pack eventually and removing the doors to build).
I'm also fucked off my new house looks a mess and that my blinds have been delayed so I can't walk around my house in my knickers. Which I really want to do right now.

Honestly wish I were writing about wearing sexy underwear and having a date night. But I'm not. I'm sweary and tired and fed up - but we did do date night last night so I'm not total bore yet eh
