It's all gone Pete Tong

My daughter wanted something bigger to store her clothes in, so I bought her a wardrobe.

I started to assemble it and then realised that her bed was in the way, so I moved it to one side.
Still not enough room, I carried on regardless, effing and jeffing, with 10 foot pieces of wood, in a room where I was lucky to have 6 foot of floor space.

For a change, I read the instructions and looked at the diagram, but it made no odds; 2 hours in and halfway through the build, I realised that there were uprights that needed to be in different places. The diagram did not show me this!!

Luckily, I love unbolting things! [/sarcasm]

The whole thing took me about 6 hours.

6 hours of shouting and cursing. My daughter hates it because it reminds her of my anger.

Then, as a treat, I sat down at my PC and decided to install some software that would delete all the unnecessary crap.

I think I pressed a button that I shouldnt have done and then spent a full 24 hours trying to repair the damage and failing. I've had to re-install windows and start again with my PC.

And today I got in the car to go shopping - the battery was flat.
