Legends from our own lunchtimes

A deadline looms.


It took a few hours last time.

Today every task left half-done then, took a few hours to put right, and I'm glad I didn't start the drawers until we can measure them in place one last time.   They "may" be ok. Logic says they will be as the runners haven't been removed, but I've spent quite a bit of time making shims that previously were unnecessary due to the miracle of the over-tightened screw and a bit of flex in the cabinet so who knows where the new alignment will be.

That might have been good of course - a bit of stress in the skin might make for very stiff structure, but I suspect not.  Mostly it's just inadequate construction.

Usually after a day like today one would feel quite dissatisfied with the lack of progress, but I think having the carcasses in place is a step in the right direction, even if it's going to take all tomorrow to finish that job!

This has gone on so long we now have a deadline - it's a few weeks off yet, so the panic is unlikely to set it, but it's reassuring to note we will be finished.  This may not be a never ending story after all.
