"Laugh or Cry?"

Hi,ONE AND ALL

I had new access ladders to the
loft,in the summer,chap did real good job.
To day I entered the loft in order to remove ,the many things with which adorn our home with, namely Xmass lights and various boxed decorations hidden up there for the summer.
I THINK ,you know whats coming next.
Yes ,thats it the loft entrance is now smaller than prior to the access ladders fittment. Don`t laugh,Well not to hard.
I am now seated at this K/Bd,thingy Ranting
There is a moral to My sad plight,Ijust do not know it at the moment.
Times I hate being a luddite,

If you go on a strict diet and exercise regime now, you should be able to get in there by about March.

Hi, EMGEE,
It`s the sizes of boxes thats the problem,
Have just transferred box contents into plastic bags,
Should manage now," Let there be lights" called the
children, And all the lighting circuit will fuse.
I just know they will.

Re: "Laugh or Cry?"

I can have our 2 stage loft access ladder at an angle, box 'atween my 30" waistband, and down we come.: Wifey' needs the ladder vertical, to allow, and has to enter the void to pass boxes down. I keep telling her, but no heed is taken. Whale bone corset, nicely wrapped in Chrissy paper coming up.

Re: "Laugh or Cry?"

Ha ha, reminds me of my over-stairs cupbard. I borrowed a ladder to build it, and discovered once I'd finished that I couldn't get the ladder out! Ended up buying my mate a new ladder, and cutting his in two!

Hi, Mave
And I thought I was the only one,
Least you did not pay some one to fit it.

That post has genuinely made me laugh out loud. It's the sort of thing I do with alarming regularity, nice to see I'm not alone

If you can't laugh at yourself, what can you laugh at, eh?

Re: "Laugh or Cry?"

Hilarious...sounds like one of those urban legend-style stories, concerning the guy who restored a Cessna in his basement, and then, when it was finished....
Do you guys play the 'which string of lights will work THIS year' game ? Lay all the light strings out on the floor, then place bets as to which will actually work - the loser has to go out and buy replacement strings !
