I had decided to have a couple of new items for the home.First step was to look on the internet. This was followed to visit the stores The Range and Buyology.
At Buyology I purchased a wooden bed. It is higher than the old one. Having paid and arranged on the Saturday that the bed would be delivered on the Tuesday. This cost £88.99 plus £30 delivery. It was ‘flat packed and had my son been available would have saved the delivery cost. WHY IS EVERYTHING FLAT PACKED?
I was in for a surprised on Monday mid-day when the bed was delivered. An easy task to put together. Tuesday I began the process but came to a part that I could not puzzle out. Luckily my handy man was calling to be paid. When he arrived I explained and he very kindly finished constructing the bed.
With the bed higher Fan has to jump higher to get on the bed but being a sheepdog that is no problem to her.
In the Range I tried out the massage recliner chair, So comfortable and the controls easy to use. It came with a foot stool.
Now comes the problem. it is ‘flat packed’. I chose Brown. Next to pay only to be told that here was a delivery charge of £25. Unfortunately my son is now unavailable to help with picking up large items. Having looked on the internet it told me that delivery was FREE for goods over £159. My item cost £179.99. I informed the assistant I would order from the ‘net’.I had to order ‘cream’ as no ‘brown’
A few days after ordering on line I had an e-mail to say it would be delivered ‘within 5 days’. The day it was delivered I had no notification and when returning from dog walk there on my back step was the large box. A neighbour had signed for it. I am a resourceful person and face challenges with gusto, I just gently rolled the box over several times to get it into the kitchen.
Next day the box was opened ; contents unwrapped and checked. Now to put it together.
Looked easy band I have only managed to put the base together. My Handyman I’ve phoned who will call up Monday morning to put it up. I hate not being able to do it myself!!!!!
In getting rid of my other bed I’ve a local charity calling to collect. I said I would take it apart. I failed as could not see how the slats came apart. Calling in the shop I explained and they said not to worry as the men will do it.
At the age of almost 70 years i still do not like to have things beat me.
