If I had a hammer...

I am SUPERWOMAN! I manage to build not one but TWO Ikea shelves all by myself!!!!

I even learn to use a hammer! And an allan key! All this, while D is completing his final column for The New Paper. He's decided to take a bit of a break from writing so now will be freer in the weekends. Yay!


I align the panels and piece em together with screws.

Then my favourite part - I get to use a hammer! Woo Hoo! Peter, Paul & Mary ringing in my head as I pound away.

I slot in the shelves.
And voila! I put both shelves side by side and arrange our DVDs and CDs alphabetically.

This is pure catharsis.

ps: The shelves were incredibly cheap - $19 each! Not even the price of ONE DVD! Insane what globalisation can do...
