When one thinks it's easy when it's not...

When I rented the studio, I thought it would be rather easy to get it painted, cleaned and furnished with a few inexpensive items and that I would be done with it fairly quickly.

Not so....

I have already been to IKEA four times before I placed my order online. There are so many little things to take care of. Here is a tally:

- Sign the contract Done!
- Have duplicate keys made Done!
- Get the place painted Done!
- Take cleaning supplies and ladder to the studio
- Get the place cleaned
- Get the motorized shutters fixed
- Make an appointment with Siemens Service for the washing machine Done!
- Have the washing machine serviced
- Find a service company for the air conditioner (I am afraid, it may bee too old and dead)
- Buy a chair and other odds and ends from IKEA Done!
- Prepare the stuff to be moved to the studio

  • The spare kitchen table
  • Two chairs and cushions
  • Kitchenware
  • Paper products
  • Cleaning supplies
  • Cooling Fan
  • Tool Box
  • Clothing Items
  • First Aid Kit and Medicine
  • Small sewing kit
  • Books waiting to be read:)
  • ..............

Oh my...

  1. Yikes! But you seem really organised - having extra things you can use there will definitely cut down on your costs. The intial moving in stage is always a bit complex, but sounds like it's all coming together! Photos when complete?? xx
