Flat Pack Hell

I am someone who doesn't ever read instructions...I don't know why...but I never do, often I find it easier just to figure it out myself..... UNTIL I cant figure it out anymore and I don't have a blooming clue. then I will reach for the instructions...Doh
I do think I can be my own worst enemy sometimes.

My husband kindly went to work and left me with flat pack hell......HELP.... he reminded me, how good and quick I am at putting things together... yeah right.. cheeky hubby....
Ok I tell myself this has got to get done and hubby's working...so let me get stuck in.... begrudgingly.

Although I do remember the good old days when fixing flat pack together was fun....really did I say that... yeah I enjoyed it, Me and hubby fixing things over a cuppa....SO why now do I hate it soooooo much.

Well maybe because I have done so many over the years and plus when you have your kids dangling off your neck whilst trying to figure out which screw you need could be a telltale sign....or maybe I'm fed up of all the mess and crumbs of polystyrene that are left behind...
speaking of polystyrene .....when my kids get hold of it and it looks like we had an indoor snow storm.....stress....:-(

So once the flat pack is finished you can step back and proudly look at your handy work OR if like me just count your blessing that it will still be standing in the next six months....as you head of for a well needed cuppa and bloody toe...(which good squashed under the wood).


  1. I don't read them either! The only instructions I can make any sense of are ikea ones!

  2. Oh I hate flat pack with a passion! Almost as much as handwash or dryclean only clothes! I want the good ol' days when two hairy blokes grunt their way up the stairs, carrying some piece of obnoxiously oversized furniture! Popping by from #PoCoLo x

  3. I am COMPLETELY like this!! Completely rubbish at reading instructions and usually miss something very vital!

  4. I love flat pack, i know i am sad but i would sit and do it all day long .. not sure why #PoCoLo x

  5. Flat pack stuff has to find me in the right mood. I am far more patient with it than Ross though - he would just take a hammer to it all!! Thank you so much for linking up to PoCoLo xx

  6. You sound much like my other half.... I'm an instruction person... I read them thoroughly before starting... unless it's a computer or a phone.

    I have nominated you over on my blog! http://www.musinghousewife.co.uk/2013/04/super-sweet-blogging-award/

  7. Hiya,this made me laugh so much!Im so like you,I never read the instructions until I have failed and are in complete meltdown!Even if I read the instructions I fail though,Im not a putter-to-getherer.
    Great post :-) #pocolo

  8. Hate flat packs! My husband and I always get into arguments over them. I was so pleased and grateful when I was pregnant that he did them by myself to spare me the hassle. And kids dangling from my neck when I'm trying to do things? Drives me up the wall. Oh dear, time for a cup of tea, I'm getting all stressed just thinking about it!
